March shawl is live!

More info here.  Isn ´t my friend and model Vaka lovely?





I need more days in august!

I´m a little worried, starting work and painting my house has taken a lot of my time lately.  I´m still working on the second sleeve with only a week to go… I haven´t even decided how to finish it…. and I´m using a 2.5 mm hook! thridji

August progress

The cardigan is coming along smoothly but boy can it be difficult to knit a thick Lopi  (not even lopi light) cardigan in August.  First of all, it´s not really portable because of the shear size and weight of it and second… it´s so so so warm. But soon it will be winter and I will be thankful that past Arndís was smart enough to knit a super warm cardigan BEFORE winter came.


Hello my name is Arndís….

…. and I can’t stop making cardigans! I just can’t stop! 

I can’t imagine going through this year without knitting a Lopi cardigan. I’m using 7mm knitting needles and plan Alafoss lopi with a intarsia twist. Can’t wait to show you guys more!


Maybe I have the name already… Colorful, cute name for a colorful cardigan…. Iv´e been very busy today calculating decreases for The Librarian (May´s cardigan), tidying up my yarn stash and my living room.  Finally I found some time to write a few words and I decided I had to show you my current work space, it´s so comfy. Here is a little sneak peak  of the cardi “Colorful” with a view over my work space at the moment.
