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!

Colorful!

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.

Top of the world!

I have been out of range since Monday on a 5 day hike in the north parts of Iceland a total of 42 km.  It was amazing, horrifying and everything in between. I feel like I can do anything now.
I have decided to finish a cardigan I started a few years ago because it suits those months photo perfectly and I have to often been asked if there will be a pattern available. It’s also the perfect stash busting pattern. There will be no photo of the project for now since I’m on my way home from the hike but I will give you a few photos from my week!
