I have been posting photos on my blog from my phone and for some reason they don't want to be centered so it's back to the ol' laptop. I love my laptop. I also love my family and have been thoroughly enjoying being on parental leave with my husband and our baby boy. I love my country! we get three months each on 80% of our full time salary, well sort of... my husband got a really good deal and ends up getting more than his monthly salary from the government while on leave. It's pretty amazing! But it doesn't stop there, we also get 3 months which we can split between the two of us. Did I already say I love my country?
Another thing I love about my country is its wonderful wool. Álafoss is my brand of choice. It is made at a cute little factory not so far away from where I live, but it is sold all over the place.
While at the summer cabin with my family the other day I picked up some yarn in a tiny town called Borgarnes for my new project. But because I always have to have a few projects to work on at once I also picked up some new material after I got back into town and I am super excited to make some more scarves.
Crochet two tone wool scarf with a fleece inner layer. The snaps are usually on little fake leather bits, but I was thinking about trying some fish leather instead for an ultra Icelandic look.
I started on this one ages ago. I wanted to just do something without any rules of limitations, no straight lines or organised shapes. Just whatever I feel is right at the moment, whatever my hands end up doing. It's coming along nicely, but still got a bit of work to do on it before its ready.
My mom actually found this vintage fabric and didn't think I would be interested in it... I AM!! I love it! Don't know exactly what I should have as an inner layer or if I should even have an inner layer.
Yay for life!
