    your 5minutes actually went 31 minutes. I enjoyed every single minute.

    • Merrilee on March 17, 2021 at 5:08 pm


    Love tht the days are getting longer by a chicken step. Also noticing that the birds are out starting to tell us it is spring

    • Annie on March 17, 2021 at 5:23 pm


    I love you guys so much. And I love that five minutes in Norway takes half an hour in Texas. Keep it up! Virtual hugs!

    • Margaret on March 17, 2021 at 5:25 pm


    Hi there,
    Just wanted to let you know that I look forward to listening to both of you every day. You are so funny and the flowers moving as Carlos talks was hysterical.
    Thank you for all you do and the beautiful patterns. I am learning how to use the four needles…… wish me luck.😀
    Enjoy the rest of your day,

    • Ardi Butler on March 17, 2021 at 5:28 pm


    A delight, as always. Thank you.

    • Laurie on March 17, 2021 at 5:36 pm


    Quick question about the actual pattern for the first egg. What method do you recommend when the pattern says to increase 1? Do you make 1 left or right or knit front and back in same stitch?

    • Brenda on March 17, 2021 at 8:01 pm


    That was so enjoyable. It was good to have a laugh and I love the length of their 5 minutes.

    • Brenda on March 17, 2021 at 8:02 pm


    That was so enjoyable. It was good to have a laugh.

    My first time visiting with you – but I’ll definitely be back. You made my day! Thanks!

    • Michelle D. Myers on March 17, 2021 at 10:29 pm


    Arne! Your curls are back!!!
    You both make my day. Y’all are soooo funny.
    Big hugs to Freya and Helmer too.
    P.s. Can’t you cook the crab, then freeze it?

    • Sandra on March 17, 2021 at 10:34 pm


    Pa. Tudor is your back side

    • Kate Manning on March 17, 2021 at 10:49 pm


    My first time spending time with you gentlemen…. what a nice way to spend 5 minutes. I suggest you buy new watches instead of jackets.😳
    Thank you for inviting me to sit and knit. I broke my leg In December and have been sitting and knitting in a wheelchair…. so this will add some fun to it!

    • Karen Davies on March 17, 2021 at 11:16 pm


    You have totally brightened this year of lockdown for all of us. Thank you! And thank you for another daily podcast series! Fun, fun. I have the pattern, the eggs are coming. By chicken steps. 🙂

    • Lori Murton on March 17, 2021 at 11:20 pm


    I’m curious about the vegan Swedish meatballs you were making when the fish man came your house; any chance you can share the recipe with us? 💞

      • Lynn on March 18, 2021 at 12:33 pm


      yes. I’d love the recipe too.

    • Mary Goodwin on March 18, 2021 at 12:40 am


    It was a joy to join you for a visit. You both are looking well!! Keep sharing!!

    • Janet McVay on March 18, 2021 at 1:09 am


    Thank you for a very entertaining 5 minutes, I hope all the rest of your daily pod casts are at least 5 minutes! Love you guys!!

    • Michele Westcott on March 18, 2021 at 2:52 am


    Best 5 minutes of my day! Thank you for sharing.

    • Anne Marie (Rasmussen) Lakey on March 18, 2021 at 3:07 am


    The two of you are a delight to listen to. I have been watching your podcasts for one year now. I also started knitting because of you. I am a beginner but loving it. I will find some yarn and knit an egg. I actually prefer the dpn’s, to the circular needles. I am so glad that Carlos is much better. That was scary.
    Anne Marie in Arizona, United States. Today was 75 degrees. Tomorrow 82 degrees. It is warming up in the desert. I have started a garden. Glad it’s Spring in Norway!

    • Gloria Clark on March 18, 2021 at 3:51 am


    I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed your videos. They have made this pandemic so much more pleasant. I loved seeing how bright and cheerful you have made your set. Looks like spring has definitely come to Norway.

    • Wendy Hollow on March 18, 2021 at 6:11 am


    You guys are a “crack up”!
    The golden tall flower waving about are Daffodils or Jonquils,
    The plants in the foreground are Polyanthus.
    Hugs WAHx

    • Barbara Skakle on March 18, 2021 at 3:47 pm


    So glad you don’t put a five minute timer on. I always laugh when you say how long the podcast will be. 😉
    Excellent podcast as always. I’m fully cheered up now and Arne’s laugh is infectious. Keep up the good work!
    Good tip about the needles too. Thanks.

    • Linda on March 18, 2021 at 4:12 pm


    It was so much fun to visit with you today. Very enjoyable thanks so much.

    • Teri Harter on March 18, 2021 at 5:28 pm


    I agree with Arne, “live in a tent”, of course with books and knitting. Okay, maybe not. To funny and cute. Thanks for the chuckle, Teri form Oregon

    • Nancy Winder on March 18, 2021 at 8:42 pm


    I love knitting the Easter eggs! Could you give us information on how you attach the ribbon – just through the top, or do you draw it through the egg like the Christmas ornaments?

    Tusen takk!

    • Sara Kinzett on March 20, 2021 at 5:55 pm


    Just love sharing your five minutes… hugs all round
