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!
No yarn buying this month… we’re diving into our stash!
Things are looking so good this month, I got a sneak peak of Arndís´s dress on her snapchat (arndisprjon)… It´s awesome. I´m right behind her finishing the collar on my cardigan 🙂 🙂 🙂 … I have also been busy practicing my comic drawing, which gives me the same zen state as crocheting. Here´s a little strip with me and Arndís…
If you are having trouble sleeping because you really really want to see more then we show here of our current status you can add us on snapchat, “arndisprjon” and “eddalilja”. BUT, I have to warn our non icelandic audience it´s all in icelandic, for now at least.
I must admit, this month is going super, super good! I have already bought yarn and started a cardigan I can´t wait to wear. The yarn is to die for and the best thing of all is…….. it´s all crochet!!! (At least for now) … I´m sorry but I don´t have a sketch to show you, it´s all in my head but I can tell you that every time I walk by my Crochet chair (I´m not calling it a knit chair any more, but that´s a story for another time) my face is like… (this gif is from giphy)
Because my project looks soooooo darn good in it!
And are you noticing the yarn in the beautiful crystal bowl! Ahhhhhh!!
We are loving our April projects, hope you do to ❤
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…
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!
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!
