A lion and a cat

Sylvía and Théa are working hard on a lion and a cat project. They are both from the book Á prjónunum after Unnur Breiðfjörð. It was thought as educationnal material, since knitting is taught in school in Iceland. It is intelligently done with a progressive approach and fun-to-do projects for every level, gathered here and there by Unnur. The cat and the lion are projects from the very first course, simply made from a square in garter stitch.

I´ve always imagined this book would make a perfect gift for who want to learn how to knit AND to learn Icelandic. I´ve already offered it to a couple of French friends, one married to an Icelandic man, the other working at the French embassy in Iceland.
