Sunday catch up

I have been on a long Easter vacation that started Thursday last week and tomorrow I return back to work. It has been wonderful and I have gotten many things done but mostly I have been relaxing. I finished the first seminar (out of three) in my studies and the next one is starting on May 3rd, so having some time off both from work and school was very welcome.

I started my vacation by finishing up these two wool jumpers for my girls.

Pattern: Loki by Ragga Eiríksdóttir
Yarn: Léttlopi
Needle: 3.5mm and 4mm
This one is knitted top down! A great change from the traditional way of making these sweaters.

Pattern: Ranga by Védís Jónsdóttir
Yarn: Léttlopi

The pattern is this one is supposed to be purled, but I decided to do it in stockinette like the rest of the sweater.

Bits & Pieces – April 6th

With going to school 3 times a week, for 3 and a half hours each time (on top of working full time and everything else I have going on), it seems like my time for hand crafts should be limited but somehow, the busier I am the more I get accomplished. Well, at least sometimes and lately that has been the deal. I am not complaining.

Dog love

Lazy dog
We spent 5 days with this sweet dog. We miss him terribly but fortunately, we do get to see him quite regularly.

Geysir Haukadal, my office today
I visited our store in Haukadalur again to do some work. Always enjoy going there.

New window display at Storkurinn. Wouldnt mind sitting there with my needles, relaxing and listening to that beautiful old radio
