Icelandic Read Along/Knit Along
To rev up our engines I am hosting an informal Icelandic Read Along/Knit Along in the Knitting Pipeline Group on Ravelry and on the Knitting Pipeline Podcast. The idea is to share literature, books, authors, and of course, knitting about Iceland. You can read anything about Iceland including travel books, Icelandic authors, and of course, classic Icelandic literature. You may already know that the Icelandic sagas are central to understanding the culture of Iceland. Since these are well into the public domain (12th century) they are usually free or nearly free in digital format. Saga or Saga are often considered a good first plunge.
I’m starting the Read Along with the 1955 Nobel Prize winning novel: Independent People by Laxness. Quite honestly, I don’t know why I haven’t read this before. Could we go wrong with a main character who is a sheep farmer? I hope you join me in the Icelandic Read Along/Knit Along.
