Thank you very much Liv, for the sample of Junik, the Faroese yarn you sent me, so I could see what it is like. Check out her Hobbyblog to see all the wonderful things she has created. I'm bringing the sample to the next Knit Cafe' for all to see. It's always fun to see Nordic yarns that are new to us.
I AM GOING TO ICELAND THIS SUMMER FOR A WEEK LONG KNITTING TOUR. I AM OVER THE MOON !
I can't wait to see this beautiful country, meet fellow knitters, and learn more about their traditions. Evelyn will be teaching a class on Icelandic Lace knitting, amongst the many other things we will be doing. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anna modeled this for me on Christmas Eve. We had a wonderful time at my sister Tina's house eating our traditional Swedish foods and opening presents.
My parent's nine grandchilden in order by age - Will, Anna, Elisabeth, Alex, Ryan, Marc, Jessa, Grant, and James. It took awhile to get these pictures taken as they wouldn't stop goofing off which recalled " The longer you do this, the longer you'll have to stand there", echoes from our parental past ! It is so wonderful to have us all together here in the Seattle area to share the holidays.
Jessa, Elisabeth, and Anna who made these yummy marzipan treats to share. It is so cute that they are so proud of their Swedish heritage.
Love you all !
