I’m so excited about this next project. Me and Edda are doing the same design but I’m knitting and Edda is crocheting. This is so different from my regular design process but still really fun.
We are working with an amazing indie dyer from Vatnses yarn. We are both working with a speckled sport yarn but in different colour ways. I was fairly late on the speckled wagon but boy is it fun to work with.
Due to me (Arndís) moving and being abroad this weekend the September project will be shown on the 7th of Oct not the last day of September as planned. Hope we are forgiven 🙂
But the shawl is almost done… with lots and lots of left over yarn.
So I forgot to blog again!!! Progress is slow but steady. The shawl turned into a scarf. Ni sure how big it’s going to be. What is the ideal length of a scarf?
What a crazy month this has been. I’m moving, works been crazy, Reykjavík had its first yarn crawl (which was osom) and so knitting productivity has not been at its best. I am really loving the shawl process, and these Icelandic indie dyers are amazing. My last colour from Vatnsnes Yarn came in the mail last week… and ohh boy is it amazing. I chose soft sock twist in the colorway “Urð og grjót”. It´s soooo beautiful….
For September I am thinking about knitting a shawl using yarn from Icelandic indie yarn dyers.
More info here. Isn ´t my friend and model Vaka lovely?
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.
