My first Icelandic Sweater


In july I’ve bought some new yarn to finally start my first Icelandic Sweater. It has been my project for this year and I felt that the early Autumn was cozy enough to start knitting again. I chose some greyish brown, off white and dark brown as a color theme, because the earth colors are my favorites. Adventurous as I am, I combined the traditional Riddari pattern with one offered by Istéx. Now, it is mid of October and I eventually finished it. I spent many nights with knitting needles and tea until it was done. And even though it’s a bit too small for me, I am very happy with how it turned out. It was so exciting to try something new and knit something else than mittens.
