Riddariculous!

It’s been a while since a lopapeysa featured on the blog, hasn’t it? I actually made this particular Icelandic sweater last year, before I moved. You’ll have seen some glimpses of it on instagram, mainly of my cats’ brave attempts to steal it for naps […]

Parrot Puffin

I don’t often knit the same pattern twice. Certainly when it concerns garments, it is a rarity. I have often professed “I´d like to knit this again at some point”, or “This pattern would be so cool in a totally different colour palette”, but you […]
