Icelandair had their inaugural flight from Edmonton to Reykjavik yesterday, and it made me a little bit jealous and a little bit homesick for Iceland. (Yes, even though I have only been there once, and have 0% Icelandic blood in my veins. Ha. I love Iceland.)
So I started browsing our old vacation photos, and then I started going through my Icelandic knittting books and lopi stash, and next thing I knew, I had two new projects all planned out!
It's a cream coloured sweater with an Indian Cross Stitch border done in a gradient of browns. The border is done at the neck, sleeve cuffs, and bottom edge. I started with the bottom edge, whipped through the five colours pretty quickly, and am now onto the long, plain stockinette portion of the body.
The lett-lopi is knit on 6.5 mm needles (normal size for this yarn is 4.5 mm). Seems like the ideal stashbuster project, and shouldn't take too long either. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
