Knitting Icelandic Sweaters, Fiber Camp 2014
|Yoke of an Icelandic Sweater|
|I love the colors in this sweater.|
Louise informed us that the Lopi yarn is very affordable and can be ordered from the Alafoss Wool store or Webs. The colors range from many shades of natural colors, to brightly dyed hues. Or if you aren't a knitter, you can order a sweater online or check out eBay. My daughter brought back Lopi yarn in shades of ice blue and deep burgundy when she went to Iceland two years ago. I haven't used it yet, I need to find the right project or order more to make a sweater.

Later this week I will post about another Fiber Camp class taught by Julia Farwell-Clay, the Terrors of Intarsia.
