I've been really busy making some christmasgifts lately - but I guess I can´t write about that until after christmas! :-) What I CAN tell you is, that I've been playing around with knit, purl, colours and some chunky, icelandic lopi - I´m quite happy with the result of this playing-around and this might even result in my first, very own pattern on Ravelry. My secret christmasproject is: a quick knit, very warm, soooo cozy, elegant if you want it to be and flexible - it´s so hard to wait until after christmas! And another thing: the more I knit with lopi, the more I love it in every way!!
About a week ago I made the cute, warm and cozy Love-Link by Knittingmydayaway. Before I started, I knew it was a cute, quick, warm, romantic and practical knit. What I didn´t know was, how incredibly much fun I would be having, making my "ástlingar" (Love-Link in icelandic)!! I was thrilled from the first moment on until the cast off! I loved to see how the heart-shape appeared, making the holes in the middle, the beautiful colour, the softness of the yarn (léttlopi) and the way it feels to put your hand inside it and meet the hand of your beloved one! :-) The pattern it self was very easy to follow. Here some pictures:
