I´m going to tell you a little about October. Early on we decided we wanted to, some time, make the same sweater but with different methods, crochet and knit. So now is that time, Yayyyy. We have decided on a design and also yarn. We are using the same yarn but in different colorways. We chose a delightful merino, silk blend from a new Icelandic indie dyer we love. Her label is called Vatnsnes yarn and we are loving the results so far….. can´t wait to show you what I´ve got startet. We are super super excited as you can imagine. The sweaters will look the same…(ish) but you, my dear reader, fellow crocheter or knitter can choose whether you will knit it or crochet. This is the yarn and as you can see, Arndís is still busy moving with all the boxes and stuff in the background. She´s not handling it very well, not being able to knit a lot but I know she´s doing her absolute best finishing the September shawl for Saturday.
This month we both have summer vacation so we decided to treat ourselves 🙂
We asked our favorite Icelandic dyer, Vivid wool, if she was willing to participate and of course she was. We sent her the photo of July and she made us this beautiful hand dyed yarn inspired by the photo… So GAME ON!
May is the month of knit, crochet and gardening work, minus the gardening work!
