November fun

The last few projects have been fun but demanding. So for November I´m thinking a easy and fun project… socks!

I´m using leftover yarn from my stash:

Wonderful Soft Sock Twist from Vatnsnes Yarn that I used in my September project (colorway Urð og Grjót).

and

one of my favorite sock yarn Cascade bought in handprjon.is many years ago.

I´m pretty sure I might have to buy some more!

AHHH this yarn!

Ahh this wonderful yarn.  It´s so squishy, soft, purple and speckled…. and so out of my comfort zone.  I´m almost done…. just the neck left.  Can´t wait to try it on my wonderful model Vaka.

 

A funny story… me and Edda Lilja decided to design a sweater together me knitting and Edda crocheting… Somehow I managed stray off the design…. just a little…. ohh well.

October project finally!

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.

A small announcement

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.

Yarn love

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….
