It's been such an amazing month, thank you to everyone that participated in Icelandic Wool Month at Tolt. I loved reading all the blog posts by our guest bloggers, Kathy Cadigan, Dianna Walla, and Cirilia Rose and seeing all the Instagram posts (#tolticelandicwoolmonth). Be sure to visit Beatrice Perron Dahlen's blog post about her experiences in Iceland.
My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful time in Iceland! We drove around the whole island on the Ring Road, visited a couple of sheep farms, floated in hot springs, visited a yarn dyer and an amazing wool center, toured Istex, met Hélène Magnússon and had lunch with Ragga Eiríksdóttir.
I wore my Dalur sweater almost everyday and it kept me warm and toasty in the ever-changing weather. I knit this sweater two weeks before we left using Álafosslopi. This bulky yarn knit up quickly and I love the way it turned out. My Moon Sprites hat was perfect for keeping my head and ears covered and with all the color options in Léttlopi, I think I might need to knit up a few more. I even managed to knit up some fun swim trunks for my husband after seeing a video on Iceland Air's website that showed some Icelandic men swimming in lopi. My poor husband modeled them in freezing temperatures at the shores of Jökulsárlón with the snow and wind blowing around us!
We hope you enjoyed Icelandic Wool Month at Tolt as much as we did and can't wait to do it again next March. I might need to visit Iceland again for this special occasion ; )
