In order to compensate, in part, for no longer being surrounded by this,
(click to embiggen; it's worth it)
I have begun working on this:
It's Vetur, a lopapeysa by Védis Jónsdóttir, from Lopi 28. I left Iceland with a sweater's worth of yarn (thanks to Ragga of Knitting Iceland), and had thoughts of designing my own yoke. There's lots of other work on the table, however; and I decided following somebody else's instructions for a change would be a vacation in itself.
So I'm knitting Vetur as written, aside from changing it from the two original colors to four completely different colors.
And using Létt-Lopi (a spun yarn, with a finer gauge) instead of Plötulopi (which is unspun and slightly bulky).
And trimming some of the lower edge of the yoke, since I don't think a large yoke flatters a small person.
And eliminating the pattern from the body and sleeves.
And altering the neckband.
And making it a zippered cardigan instead of a pullover.
And working it from the top down instead of the bottom up.
Aside from that, I'm absolutely going to sit back and let dear Védis do the driving.
