In May this year I got to be a teacher on a KNITTING CRUISE, with Craft Cruises. It was fabulous and of course my bestie Stephen was there too! All knitters should try this once… in fact I would like all my friends, even the muggles, to try this once. Glamour, gala dinners, cocktails, outfit changes, the soft ocean waves rocking you to sleep at night, starry skies, a shooting star, amazing service and of course lovely knitters! The cruise took us from Rome to Copenhagen. It’s so cool to go asleep in your own little room and wake up each morning at a new and exotic location. The last day we had a lovely time in Copenhagen with a local knitter/designer Karen (Rav: Lykkefanten) who showed us around and was very awesome
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!
