Today Harpa Rún came and spent time with us Spinning-sisters and read from her book. She realized, when reading out loud, that one of her poems suited perfectly with the environment and present company at the loft. So she "just" gave us the poem. There and then! It is ours! How about that honor? Thank you SO much, dear Harpa Rún.
It is, of course, read in Icelandic, but it symbols the bond between the generations coming and going, and describes it in the way as when we spin a thread from our wool. 😊🙂

I got a very pleasant visit today. 🥰Stephen West and Kristy Glass just stopped by to get some yarn.

Few of us got a tiny bit star-struck. 🤩🤭

 

Dís in autumn colors

The colourful autumn is coming closer. We are going to have dís in some new colours this winter along with the natural colours. Here you can see a small glimpse of our experiments. A bit autumny don’t you think? 🥰

The shelves are stacked with new colours and freshly spun yarn. Dís (fingering) is now available in few variations. Sure is fun to do something nice from that one. 😊

Tröllaband a fun yarn to experiment with

The tröllaband (trollyarn) is fun to make and fun to knit from. Can be used for many different things. 🥰

 

Baby swaeater made of dís

The new colour of dís turns out nicely in a baby sweater. Gorgeously soft. Want one that fits me. 🤭

 

We have now taken our sheep to the mountains for the summer. They will stay there until the beginning of September when we get them home again.

Every year there is a festival in the woods near Reykjavík. Uppspuni attends it and we dye our unique yarn over an open fire. Good time spent with nice people in the Icelandic summer sun.

The last couple of weeks I have been to knit festivals introducing my products. I have also been at a seminar where I learned to make felted slippers. It was all so great. In the meantime, my machines keep on making beautiful soft wool yarn for my local farmers and my self because the yarn keeps on selling 🙂
