Knitty is back!

What a summer this has been! I moved to a new place, got married (man! that was fun!) and got a summer job as a librarian!  Also lost my knitting-mojo somewhere along the way and haven’t knitted for about 1.5 months now. So what better way to kikc-start your knitting-mojo than a beautiful baby blanket?!

I’ve been looking at the Bring-it-on baby blanket from Pickles for days now and finaly bought the yarn. I bought one of my favorites, Icelandic Kambgarn, in four colors: beige, gray, blue and kind of green/blue. It’s 100% pure new wool, spun and dyed in Iceland and comes in so many fabulous colors.  The blanket will be a gift to my friends baby, a little boy due in the fall. Can’t wait to cast on! :)

And yeah, did I mention that my deliciously scrumptious and vibrant hand dyed Eigingirni can now be shipped worldwide and I accept PayPal? Yes indeed! :)


Winners of summer/birthday giveaway! :)

It’s my birthday so it’s time to find out who are the two winners of the summer/birthday giveaway!

Thanks to everybody that joined! :)

I used to find out the winners and it gave me the numbers 53 and 5.

So Lilja Gunnlaugsdóttir and Drífa Pálín congratulations! You get to pick one skein of Eigingirni from this album :)

P.S. I recommend Mojito’s when having a birthday – SKÁL! :)

Summer / Birthday giveaway! :)

You like?! :)

Today is the first day of summer here in Iceland and my birthday is in next week so I’m giving away two skeins of gorgeous Eigingirni in a SUMMER / BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY :)

All you have to do is comment on this post before 8pm on the 28th of April and you’re in! On the 28th (my birthday! :) ) I will use to find two winners that will recieve one skein each from my Eigingirni-stash.

Don’t worry about shipping – in this giveaway I will ship anywhere in the world so the winner can enjoy his Eigingirni ;) And no, the winner does not have to pay for the shipping ;)

P.S. Eigingirni is my own hand dyed yarn. It’s icelandic wool, laceweight and perfect for shawls and smaller projects. It’s very warm and so light you wouldn’t believe it ;)  For now it’s only available to buy it in Iceland but for giveaways I ship anywhere :)
