@hey.its.franklin.g was really proud of himself after this, but don't worry, my swatch was safely rescued shortly after. I did a quick swatch for Skógafjall tonight (not in my intended colors), because I'm in need of an "instant gratification" sweater project... You know the feeling, right? 😂 Thanks again to @deepblueknits for bringing me back a sweater-sizes souvenir from her Iceland trip earlier this year! 😄

I finished my #blaercardigan a while back but then had a bout of button indecision. ☺️ I think she's done now. Thanks to @jjameswk for taking a few pictures last night.
I knit this sweater the March of 2016 for #tolticelandicwoolmonth and it is still a staple in my wardrobe. I designed the yoke myself. It's sort of simple but I still love it. The yarn is #lettlopi. It's one of my favorite yarns to work with and it dries so fast after washing it that it's crazy to me 😂. #knitting #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #knitting_inspiration #handmade #handknit #handknitting #handmadewardrobe #makersofinstagram #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #wool #icelandicsweater #icelandicknitting #icelandicwool #pnw #bellingham #sweater #wool #green

Feeling kind of giddy about my #blaercardigan One sleeve done, one to go (+ button bands). I knit a lot of this on the road in Iceland & the wool is also Icelandic, so it will always hold good memories for me. 🐑

Here's what my #skogafjallsweater looks like when it's worn! It's got a lovely fit, thanks to the clever design by @cakeandvikings! More details on the blog, if you're so inclined! #tolticelandicwoolmonth #lettlopi

My first lopapeysa! I'm so happy with how this turned out. I've quickly moved on to a Riddari sweater for my man😊 Pattern is #skogafjall by @cakeandvikings put out by @toltyarnandwool
In case you've been wondering, yes, I did get my #blaercardigan done in time for Easter Sunday. I'm so pleased with how this project turned out! It's delicate but sturdy, and despite being very "authentic" Icelandic Wool (read scratchy), I have found it to be very wearable, even next to skin. After reading @claraparkes book Knitlandia I knew I had to give Lopi a chance and I'm so glad I did. So much history is bound up in these stitches. This is a piece I'll be proud to wear for years to come. #tolticelandicwoolmonth #knittersofknitlandia #southsoundproud

the colours of the sage & lichen complimenting my finished Skógafjall lopi by @cakeandvikings ... feeling exhausted & worn thin, but at least I'm warm & dry in wool during an unusually wet week in eastern WA #tolticelandicwoolmonth #skogafjall

My Ryðrauð cardigan is finished! The buttons have been attached and the ribbon was carefully hand-sewn on to cover the steek stitches (flip through to the third pic to see it!). And thank you so much for all of the input on the buttons, you all verified what I'd been thinking. #ryðrauðcardigan #rustycardigan #ryðrauð #rustykal #toltknits #plötulopi #plotulopi #tolticelandicwoolmonth #icelandicwoolmonth #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram

Today we had another successful Steeking Tea Party at Tolt! Many mug cozies and swatches were cut to cheers and applause. Tea was drunk, treats were consumed, and a good time was had by all. Plus I was able to cut my Ryðrauð open. Yay!! #steekingteaparty #steek #toltknits #rustycardigan #ryðrauð #tolticelandicwoolmonth

It's the last day of #tolticelandicwoolmonth and I just finished the body of my Ryðrauð cardigan! Now I just have to sew up the underarms, give it a good soak, steek the front, and add the buttonband. Should be ready to wear by Monday. It's been so much fun knitting a sweater with plotulopi! Thank you for the encouragement, @toltyarnandwool and @mjmucklestone! #toltyarnandwool #icelandicwoolmonth #plötulopi #plotulopi #rustycardigan #ryðrauðcardigan #ryðrauð #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #toltknits
