Postcards 2016 from the Hiking and knitting with the Elves tour

P1010069

Hiking and knitting (lace shawls) with the Elves in a glorious weather… what a wonderful tour it was and such a fun fun fun company of knitters! 

Above is a magnificent Halldóra scarf knitted with Love Story in the West fjord green shade by the adorable Susan, coming in a knitting tour with me all the way from Australia, for the second time! So was Laurie after she put herself into shape for the hikes, that makes me so happy!

A blurry lace project of mine in the foreground – I will have to take a real camera with me one day… this is such a wonderful spot to enjoy the puffins, you can almost touch them!

Ready for a splash in the cold sea, then the hot tub: from left to right, a lovely shawl designed by Melanie Berg, my Icelandic spring shawl , a beautiful hyrna (traditional triangular garter stitch shawl) knitted with plant-dyed yarn from Hespa.
