Inspiration Iceland: Lava

Inspiration Iceland: Lava

I think I’m addicted to lava. Icelandic lava to be precise. I loved gazing across the lava fields now covered in moss. I loved watching the mud bubble while snow fell at Seltún. I loved the black sandy beaches left behind. And the colors… …and textures of the rocks at our feet. So far, they’ve inspired … Continue reading

Inspiration Iceland: Wool

It’s impossible to stroll the streets of downtown Reykjavík and not notice the wool. Yes, there are many shops filled with sweaters aimed at tourists, but I also spotted at least three vendors in the Kolaportid Flea Market stitching behind their tables. When I saw a store devoted to wool goods, I couldn’t resist a visit. At … Continue reading

Inspiration Iceland: Glacier

Inspiration Iceland: Glacier

I’m sure there are things I’ve forgotten, but I’ll … Continue reading

Progress

My posts have been a bit sparse lately—both in frequency and content. I think there have been so many small things happening, that I didn’t know quite what to share. To keep things simple, I’ll start with some highlights from the past few weeks. World Wide Knit in Public Day happened. Although, I discovered that … Continue reading
