I picked the wrong day to do my stitching. It was dark and dreary yesterday. No sunny window for me. I slogged through it while watching Floss Tube. Before I even got started I had to pick out a few rows of my house. I hadn't noticed that the windows have three panes on the top and four on the bottom. It was a quick fix.
My stitching "panic packing" was bringing along the neglected little Arctic Circle Santa that I've been working on for several Christmases. I only have the beading left and it was actually pretty fun. I was afraid of it at first but what the heck, no one will care but me if it's not perfect.
While I was working I was also texting back and forth with Daughter. She was here.
I'd sent her with the mitten pattern that matches my Mosi hats and she was trying to buy me yarn for it.
We were discussing the merits of the different Lopis....
....when the shopkeeper suggested I try this. I don't know what Daughter ended up getting but I'm terribly excited to find out.
The Icelandic knitting shops are not just for knitting supplies. Look at all those beautiful lopapeysas for sale. Even though I already have four that I've made, it makes me want to cast another one on. They are always my go to sweaters when it gets cold. It's the best fit for my body type which is getting more and more Hobbity every day.
I've always wanted a Riddari. This might be the year. Resolutions, anyone?
