My daughter is almost 10 now. She toured around the states with Stephen and me all of April and was a total trooper! When we were at Fancy Tiger in Denver we got really crafty and Rúna designed and made some really nice clothes (with just a little help from mom). Here is an interview our friends ad FT did with Rúna for their blog! On the photo she is wearing a super cute kitty skirt and a top that we made.
This is an oldie but goodie. I LOVE the photos of my daughter Rúna Lóa. I just reposted this free download on the Knitting Iceland website. The original versions were made from my hand dyed Nammi yarn – I got sick of dying yarn so it’s not available any more (one of the perks of being your own boss… you simply stop doing things that you don’t enjoy that much). But the base for the Nammi yarn was the Icelandic lace weight Einband… which is not really laceweight… more like fingering probably. Anyway, just go by gauge and you’ll be just fine. Enjoy!
I finally put up buying options for my knitting kits on the Knitting Iceland website. Check them out
I’m going on a teaching trip to USA with my bestie Stephen West and my daughter Rúna Lóa. Here are our gigs:
April 10: Steven and I will introduce two super exciting new classes at the beautiful Fibrespace in Alexandria, VA; the first one is Shapes and Forms the RaggaWest way and the second is The RaggaWest Idea Tank
April 14: More of the good stuff in Denver; Shapes and Forms the RaggaWest way.
April 20-21: I’ll be visiting Des Moines, IA for the first time to teach for the local knitting guild. We’ll have four classes in two days… super excited about that!
April 25-29: We’re once again going to have the pleasure of hanging out with the awesome fiber posse of Steven Be at his 4th annual Fiber Fest in Minneapolis, MN. Check out the amazing instructors and program… here I think name dropping is only appropriate as the schedule includes sessions with Franklin Habit, Stephanie Pearl McPhee, Julie Weisenberger and more awesome people.
April 27: It’s time for YARNOVER, the oh so very popular event organized by the Knitting Guild of Minnesota. I’ll be teaching two classes, Iceland Upside Down and Groovy Garter Stitch.
April 30: I’ll be meeting the superduperhyperawesome Knitting Guild of Minnesota for a lecture and evening filled with Lopi goodness.
People! The lovely Elizabeth from the Whitknits blog contacted me a while ago about an interview. So here it is Remember to enter the contest, you could win a free copy of my class on Craftsy! (the photo has nothing to do with the interview… other than being of your’s truly. It’s taken in my favorite store in Amsterdam, SPRMRKT!
