Just wondering what you are currently knitting. I love your Fimma sweaters. I have knit 3 of them for my grandsons.
I hope all is well with you.

Thanks! :) I’m currently working on knitting a lopapeysa from a new pattern I’ve designed. I’ve been very busy and distracted lately so it’s going sloooowwly, but I will publish the pattern once it’s done. :)

I wanted to thank you for your gorgeous patern, “Fimma”, which I have just knitted for my granddaughter in Icelandic wool. I am a novice knitter and must admit that I made a bit of a muddle of it in places, but I got there in the end and it looks gorgeous. There are the occasional errors of alignment (!!!) but you would have to be a bit of a detective to spot them. I take the view that it all adds to the sweater’s originality!
It is such a generous thing to do, to make your patterns available to all, and it seemed important to mention this to you. I never respond to blogs of any kind, so this is a first! I am also an Australian, and have lived in London for 35 years. Thanks to you, I have discovered what I think may become a bit of an addiction. This kind of knitting is so much fun – complicated in the just the right way. I will try another of your patterns next.
With thanks and warmest wishes,

Thank you so much for your kind message, I’m so glad you enjoyed knitting it. It’s always lovely to hear from people who’ve knitted my patterns. :)
I’m not a super experienced knitter myself but I find that I learn new things from every project I complete. Every mistake I make is something I know not to do next time!
I’ve been very quiet on this blog for a while now as I’ve been very busy, but I hope to get another pattern up by the end of this year.
Thanks again for taking the time to comment, greetings from Iceland from one Aussie expat to another! :)

Hello! I just came across your Blossi pattern, it’s lovely! I do not knit, so I’m having someone make this for me. Could you tell me the names of the colours you used in this. Thank you!

Hi, and thank you! :) The colours are 0051 white, 1412 pink heather, 9428 rose heather, and 9417 dark wine (Ístex léttlopi wool). It’s also written in the pattern so you can see how many skeins you need of each colour. :)

Many thanks Sarah , I knitted your beautiful Emma sweater for my grand daughter (8 years) Clémentine.It fits perfectly and she loves it.
I appreciate your clear instructions and the model was easy to knit. Thank you for the time you took to put this model online for free.

Hi.. Where did you find the Emma pattern? I have been looking for it like crazy. I even wrote an email, but didn’t get any reply. Can you please help me?

I love the white sweather with the pink flowers, that you for some reason don’t want to publish.
I would like to know if I can buy it anyway. Many you could send it as pdf file. I found the chart in Pinterest, but it is like stealing from the creator, and I would much rather contact you.

Hi Sarah. Thankyou for your lovely knitting pattern which l am going to make for my granddaughter. I would like to use the exact colours you have chosen but l am having difficulty in getting the mustard lettlopi yarn. I am in the UK. Do you have any idea where l can buy this? Thanku. Estelle
