A wonderful Hiking and knitting tour under the Midnight Sun in the troll Peninsula with wild flowers, waterfalls, beautiful mountains topped with snow, a lot of sun, a bit of fog, a dash of rain, lots of wool and much much more!

That day fearless knitters cut a steek (because it’s what we do in Iceland)  and crossed a glacial river. And yes the water was glacier cold!

We learn all sorts of traditional techniques and new skills during the tour and the result of the workshop? What the heck, an awfully troll!!?

Everyone also worked on “real” mittens with confidence! See some patterns and kits here.
