DH & I have been to visit friends in Iceland 3 times over the last 12 years.
I have knit myself 2 cardigans in Allafoss Lopi (Chunky) I do not find them scratchy BUT I wear the as jackets on dry cold days never next to my skin , they have never been washed yet but are super warm. Sorry I can't seem to post the photos of them at the moment.
Thank you everybody for all the good wishes.
I was 3 months behind with KP - now only about a week to catch up BUT for some reason the replies were not poping up on my computer so now I have to try to fix that!

Whoops I have just noticed that I joined here on 22nd July 2012 - so I have been here 7 years as well. Lets have a gin and tonic tonight to celebrate! Sending love and hugs to you and all my wonderful KP friends. I love you all xxxxxx
5 days more than me! Can't have the g&t I'm of booze till February - facing chemo starting in a few weeks so no booze till that is finished!
All those stitches on the needles at the same time... (
The small sizes don't have that many stitches! At the moment I am trying to upsize the pattern to fit a 3 year old girl, Maths are not my strong point so hope it will work.
Just for me try a 1st size little coffee bean & see what you think! I only found the pattern about 3 years ago & it is my "Waterwheel"!!
I hope you are healing well and feel better soon. ... (
Good decision to catch a keeper, I have one of them too!
Thank you all very much for your kind comments. I think I'll knit one using a bright blue next.
Another lovely cardi & super matching buttons.

Best wishes to you for a continued good recovery.

Thank you, it was a general, double mastectomy, yo... (
Yes, I walked around at all hours also, think it upsets the night staff!!
Hope things are getting better for you, I have had 2 surgeries in the last 4 months, a knee replacement & then a lumpectomy (right breast) & now facing chemotherapy & radiation.
My brain / memory have also taken a break so muddling along!
Best wishes to you, I enjoy your posts.
Welcome back, hope health etc all good now.
Another lovely one, Deegle.
Try Little coffee bean pattern free on line, it is top down & perfect for a little cardi as the raglan fronts, sleeves & back are all knit at the same time so no need to match & no waste of yarn!!
Perhaps the next one I see from you might be little coffee bean then you will desert your fav "waterwheel"!!
Welcome to my lovely country.
Cousins of my DH own the land Newgrange tombs are on.
Hope you enjoy your visit
