We are proud to present this amazing shawl from Arndís and this amusing neck piece from Edda Lilja… Have a lovely weekend, I know we will!
Thanks to #tuesdayworkdays with Arndis, my march project is finished and OMG it´s pretty. It took a little turn, not as much as the February project but like half a U turn or so. I can´t wait to show you guys. My good co worker Íris is modeling for me tomorrow after work and she found the perfect dress to match my piece, which you can see sneaking out under the smiley face on my snapchat photo… You will see the whole piece in only two days!
And on my publishing news, Unnur is almost ready for tech editing and test knitting.
Well, I can´t wait to see your shawl Arndís, I´m totally in love with the colors and the texture!!! My project, on the other hand is working up pretty slowly, my head is totally somewhere else… I want to be doing everything else than this piece. It´s not that I´m not loving how I see it in my head, but it´s just somehow such a boring way getting there if you know what I mean. You know I want things to go quickly!
After making a few mini shawls, which is addictive by the way, I finally decided on a pattern and boy am I having fun! This is knitting up really quickly. Really loving the way the textures of the Phildar. Can’t wait to show you! My 4 year old really loved one of the mini shawls and used it all the time so choosing the right pattern was easy.
Ok, ok I get that you are not seeing what it is I´m trying to make (not really though), but it´s going to be a decoration around your neck. But at the moment it´s a bit of a heap-yarn-crochet-blob, but a really pretty and soft heap-yarn-crochet-blob as you can see.
I´m not at all bitter about your new yarn, pens and stuff from Edinburgh (just so you know), because while you where there I got myself an awesome crochet chair and completely turned my living room around.
P.s. Did I tell you already, I love your mom´s sketch!
For March I went to my local yarn store Storkurinn. I tried Phildar Phil Soft + yarn for the first time last summer and totally fell in love. It’s super light and delicious. I just love the colors and the depth they bring. I also bought a skein of Brooklyn Tweed. I haven’t worked with Brooklyn Tweed but have wanted to for a very long time. So I think it has to be in there somewhere to give the super light Phildar some weight.
I´m think a shawl this time around. A big shawl that you can wrap around your neck multiple times while you wait for spring.
Ohh and did I mention I´m going to Edinburgh Yarn festival this week with my mum and gran for my grandmother’s 80th birthday?!? So so so so so excited!!!!!
I just must admit to you all…… I have nothing, no idea, nothing! BUT I can wish Arndís a happy happy birthday and because it´s your BIRTHDAY I´m sharing to you (and everyone else)this “pet project” of mine: The knit police! Now I have a week to come up with something!!
The caption for the picture of March is “Longing for Spring”. If you live in Iceland you understand.
Small change of plans Arndís will be posting on Mondays from now on.
