Winter is here

First thing made for me this year (well second if you count the beanie I made and haven´t shown you).  I finally finished it yesterday, but the weather was not really in the same birthday mood as I was, so these pictures will have to do.

There is no pattern, just a simple raglan sweater, made from Mohair silk from Sandnes, and Einband.  These two make a lovely combination. 

apart from the weather I got some really nice birthday presents, like the Sjónabók (700 pages of  patterns and ornamets from Iceland, these charts are from the 17th, 18th and the 19th century).

And I also got another pattern book, this one is from Faroe Islands, and a bit different than the Icelandic book, more graphic and simple patterns, but some are similar, but the Faroe island patterns are more simple.

I love both my new books, and I already have a lot of ideas, but this 24 hours a day thing is not working in my favor right now.


  1. Happy birthday! The sweater looks smashing, both cosy and warm. And lucky you, nice books, lots of inspiration in those, I can imagine. Bente

  2. Happy Birthday!

    I also have the pattern book from Faroes and I use it quite often
