next year I am going to Iceland!!!!!
As you know, I have a love for Icelandic textiles (ahem, ahem, ahem) which I thought like some of my knitting phases would come and go BUT ever since I got into it, rather than abating the urge has grown stronger.. So, I took a deep breath and booked myself a place on one of Helene Magnuson’s knitting tours in May 2015, this one to be exact: Spring Knitting Retreat.
I am so excited. I booked my place on Monday, and my flights from Edinburgh (the irony of flying south to go north isn’t lost on me..) the trip contains so many things I would love to do and I cant believe I will be doing them!! I’m not a big traveller and I am an especially nervous island girl but somehow, rather than being nervous about going on my own to a foreign country (either a great idea or idiotic) so I am beside myself to be going on a knitting holiday to Iceland!! I’m sure this is what knitterly people feel when they come to Shetland.
sigh.. so if you would also like to go to Iceland, I would urge you to come on this trip if you can. Luckily I have a large stash of Icelandic Wool so apart from my business knitting (I am a cushion making machine atm..) I shall spent from now til May making myself many Lopi Jumpers
