Sorry guys!

I hate to brake it to you, I started hating the June project and decided to throw it in a bag and start a new one. I´m not making the sweater I´m wearing in the Knit police…. I´m saving it til later.  BUT the new one is awesome!!!…. Sorry Arndís, I know you told me to hang in there but I just could not have it in front of my face for a second longer!

Here is a photo of the old one, the new one and the yarn I´m using next in the new one.

Knit Police!!

An extremely exciting month…. I love using my stash, because I have an awesome stash, the first issue of The Knit Police is ready and we have a Knitting festival weekend ahead of us 🙂 🙂 🙂

The best part though is…. wait for it….. I´m wearing the June cardigan in the first issue of The Knit Police!

P.s. these skeins are only the first ones I have chosen…

Happy first day of summer!

OMG I´m back home and it´s actually not that bad (liar, liar, pants on fire). Don´t get me wrong, I love Iceland and everything in it but can you seriously stop this constant heavy wind and decide for a moment if it´s going to be raining, snowing, blowing or something else!  For example, to day is the first day of summer, which I have never understood why it´s in April, and it has been windy, snowy, sunny and cold, all at the same time. 

The good thing about it the first day of summer is that it´s a national holiday and I get to spend it in my knitting chair 🙂 .  My April sweater is almost finished, I only have 2/3rd of a sleeve left and as I promised, here are some photos from my trip to Riga.

Reality bites!

Greetings from Riga!!! What I was hoping for was this: “I´m totally loving the warm summer breeze here and I think I will be spending my time here mostly out on the patio with my april project (don´t tell my family yet though)”…… But reality is:kuldi

“It´s almost the same as in Iceland now, a bit cold and wet and I will be knitting/crocheting inside looking out the window. I think it´s going to knit/crochet up real fast 🙂 which is good because then I will be able to use it back home in the cold spring. I promise a lot of beautiful photos from Riga in my next blog post.  

Feeling good about April

Yes Arndís I think all yarn shops in the world should have toys for kids, it must be better for business.  

I´m experimenting with paint.net for my sketches. First try is ok but I will try a bit harder…skissa

Ohhhh f……  I will pick up my pen again…. Unless you know about a better program to make sketches, it must be free or cheap and I must have a lot of control over everything 🙂 🙂 🙂 …

But my april will be a Lopi Sweater with mixed methods, knit and crochet because that´s what I love. I love both methods and I can´t choose.

My next blog post will be published from Riga, Latvia where me and my family will be spending  Easter vacation.  Seeya!
