Sweet Nostalgia

Sweet Nostalgia finished at last.

It only took me 12 months to stitch the 12 blocks. Then it took me more than a year to finish it.
Of course I have been working on other thing too.
 I'm happy it is finished and 
I do like the quilt. 
The pattern was some years ago a block of the month  from Dorothy  

A sweater for my son, the writer, 
the pattern is from an old Icelandic book, called Skaftafell's Book.
By Jon Einarsson, (1731-1798) a skilled craftsman from Skaftafell. 
The yarn is Icelandic lopi, I must say I don't like lopi 
and I told my son, "this is the last time I use LOPI for knitting".
(I might have said that before).

"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." Albert Einstein     

Until next time. Happy quilting.

Not a month without a knitting
 This little jacket was knitted for baby Katrin.
The yarn was bought in "Litla Prjonabudin" in Reykjavik,
but is actually Danish from Askeladen very soft and nice to work with.

Here you can see how it is worked  with short rows 
(the colour in this photo is not right).

I'm still quilting Sweet Nostalgia, I have rested Love Entwined for awhile.
Want to spend some time on Dear Jane.

Happy quilting, knitting, stitching or what ever you are working on.
