Öskudagur and weekend knitting

I have been sick since Friday. I am feeling a lot better but still have a slight fever. Hopefully this is the last day with a fever since I have a very busy week ahead of me at work. So I have been staying home, watching movies and Seinfeld. Oh, how I love Seinfeld.

I have been working on a shawl for myself that I am absolutely in love with. I bough the yarn (Noro Kureyon Sock) while I was in England over Christmas and knew instantly that it would become a shawl. And when I saw the simple design that is the Boneyard Shawl I decided to make that my first knitted shawl. It is very simple and plain, just like I had imagined. The yarn really does the design, makes it look very pretty. I love the colour variation of this yarn, it reminds me of the traditional Icelandic sheep colours.

Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock S149
Needles: 4mm

I have also been working on a Lopapeysa for my daughter Sumarrós. That one is coming together great. I am mixing and matching several Lopi designs to fit her wishes. I can’t wait to start the pattern for the chest piece.

Pattern is a mix of several Lopi designs. I will list them once the sweater is finished. Yarn is Létt Lopi from Ístex.

I am also working on a stitching project that is getting very close to being finished. Pictures of that later this week as it is for an exchange that is due tomorrow.

And this last week was Öskudagur, which is basically our Halloween of sorts. The kids dress up in costumes and go out to stores and sing for candy. Sumarrós decided to be a Disco Queen and Karítas was a princess, off course.
