An aunt visited Iceland several times, for the geology. She came home with yarn from there and made a sweater so quickly. I remember how soft it felt, and lovely earthy colours.


Yes Fran, the colours are lovely, but the yarn is not very soft. Hopefully it gets softer when used. I still love it though.


Love this Icelandic sweater - beautiful colours and pattern. Maybe one day I will try to knit one. The histor of Icelandic knitting was indeed very interesting. Jackie


Thank you Jackie.
I completed the sweather last night, while watching Poirot :-)
It was actually a quite fast and easy knit, you really should try it.


What a gorgeous sweater!! I can only dream of knitting something like this. My aunt taught me to knit when I was 12-13 but I've never gotten very good at it. Time to get out my needles and start practicing!


Good luck Geargeanne. Let us know how it goes :-)

  • maskerade
    The first step is always the most exciting. I am sitting in a small hotel room, somewhere in Norway. I am knitting, and all of a sudden I knew it was time to start a knitting blog. Maskerade, masquerade, playing with words as maske is the Norwegian word for a knitted stich, rad is a row. Knitted stich in a row - maskerade.
