We promised you some news on what The harbour project would be up to in a new year…. so I think it´s time….
Some of our projects have made it into patterns on Ravelry and probably not been added here so I will step up my game and do something about that to.
I (Edda) suddenly decided to open up my own yarn shop, decision made on Friday, first yarn order made the next Sunday….. shop opened 2 weeks after that I think… it´s all a blur, LOL.
My shop is called Garnbud Eddu or in English, Edda´s Yarn shop and it´s a brick and mortar shop with no official website yet but it´s getting there. I have a Garnbud Eddu and garnbud_eddu, so please check it out 🙂 … I mainly sell yarn from indie dyers, fancy good quality yarn. My first one was my favorite Icelandic indie dyer Vatnses Yarn, second one Goosey fibers which I love and adore, third one in was Knoll yarns and forth is from the sweetest yarnshop in Edinburgh Ginger Twist studios, her own hand dyed yarns. Ginger twist is partly responsible for this shop fairy tale of mine, you don´t need to go big to go big… if you know what I mean.
My fifth brand is in progress and is extremely exciting and than last but not least, I´m selling my own project bags, featuring The Knit Police and other knit and crochet comics I make. The newest trend is a custom made bag, made just for you with all your special characteristics 😀 .
We give you December!….. Update on what´s next coming soon 🙂
It´s hard to find daylight in November in Iceland for a photoshoot. It only shows for a very few hours… between 12 and 3 pm, if we´re lucky… seriously! But here it is, our lovely November socks and cardi!
We are so happy to be publishing the October projects ONE day earlier than planned!
I’m working sleeves on my cosy October sweater, can’t wait to show you more! The yarn is a soft merino-alpacca blend from the lovely indie dyer Vatnsnes yarn.
September is the month of new beginnings, organizing and so on. Now I´m trying to tame myself to writing the pattern before crocheting. It´s so freaking hard…. but ohhh will it be worth it! I even started sketching before writing 🙂 … I´m taking things to the next level.
I´m a little worried, starting work and painting my house has taken a lot of my time lately. I´m still working on the second sleeve with only a week to go… I haven´t even decided how to finish it…. and I´m using a 2.5 mm hook!
I started this cardigan a few (I wanna say months but it really is) years ago. I had not developed my snob for yarn then so the lower half is much cheaper then the rest of the cardi 😀…
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.
That is the question. After many disputes about it I decided to go against all objections because this cardi just yelled out for the zipper. I ´m not the biggest zipper fan for knit and crochet cardigans but this time I stand by my decision! I love it!
Tune in tomorrow for the whole results of June 🙂
