Icelandic Read Along/Knit Along 
To rev up our nordic 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. Njal’s Saga or Egil’s Saga are often considered a good first plunge. 

I’m starting the Read Along with the 1955 Nobel Prize winning novel: Independent People by Halldor 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.

Kindness KAL Shawl by Jaala Spiro 
  • Worked from outside of yarn cake. 
  • Optical illusion that center color is smaller yardage. 
  • Added picot bind off because I wanted to use as much of the yarn as possible.  Picot BO as follows. Using knitted CO, cast on 3 sts. Bind off 6 stitches. Repeat.
