Bits & Pieces – July 21st

I am on vacation. And finally it feels like I am on vacation as I am finally relaxed enough. I always have a hard time getting into the right mindset for not waking up in the morning and going to work. Guess I am a creature that likes routine. Thankfully, I also like relaxing, I just take my time getting used to it.

I did a little yarngraffiti on my way to visit Hespuhúsið, where you can buy the most amazing herb dyed Icelandic wool.

See! Amazing, isn’t it?

My favorite showed up at the cabin @deibpia
Me and Sumarrós and my mom went to my grandfathers cabin in Skorradalur and stayed for 5 days. My friend Rósa came for a visit.

Foli Sindri wearing the sweater I knitted for him
I finished this sweater for my friend Óli. The pattern is Grettir by Jared Flood. The pattern is amazingly well written and I highly recommend it. I did some changes though, like opening it up and added a zipper and a hood to it.

So tired of the #rain #selfie
It has been raining almost all summer. I am very tired of it, but the forecast says that next week might be better. I hope it comes true.

Yesterday, me and my friend Rod went for a drive to Snæfellsnes to visit a rocky beach called Djúpalónssandur. It was absolutely amazing and fun and beautiful. This part of Iceland is so beautiful it makes my heart swell up.

  1. Love the Djúpalónssandur photo. Love the post. Also: love you.

  2. I love that picture of the sea and pebble beach! And you have coloured this post wonderfully with yarns or otherwise, in contrast to the muted tones of the weather – I hope it gets better for you.
