Knitting and dyeing

I have been dyeing today. I dyed some Einband which
is single spun icelandic wool from Istex. I just LOVE how it turned out. What a lovely colors.

This is a single spun Sethland wool.

This look nice. I have already started to knit a shawl from it.

Waiting for the green color to show up. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Old rose

This is my project right now. These colors remind me of rose. I'm going to knit something nice of it :) I think it will be beautiful.

Here is my 9 year old daughter in the company of Grýla and Leppalúði witch are the parents of the icelandic julelads. This photo is taken in Akureyri a month ago. That couple are not nice one, they like to eat children.

Done :)

Finally I finished this one! It took ages to spin it. My work also did get in the way ;) I'm happy with it, it turned out better than I expected. It will probably end as nice socks. Now I'm doing some fractal spinning witch is very exiting.
It is getting colder here, but the weather is beautiful. The temperature outside now is about 6°C.

Spinning Sethland wool

I dyed some of my new Sethland wool yesterday and I'm not very happy about the colors I got. I guess I have to get some feeling about how to use the colors. This one that I started spinning was supposed to be more olive green. I don't have olive green, I just blended together the colors I had.

This one came out better than I tought it would do. I think this will become a lovely shawl ;)

Im also happy with this one. This will probably become a very nice shawl too ;)
