It took longer than usual, but on our last day in Iceland I finally went into a yarn store to sniff and fondle Iceland yarn. And I guess it doesn't come as a surprise that I left the store with some souvenirs. I have no idea what the yarn will eventually be - but the colours reminded me of our fantastic trip to the Ice Lagoon and I couldn't resist.
And obviously I don't have enough books with sock patterns... ;-) Kidding apart, Socks of Iceland by Hélène Magnuússon is not only a book with sock patterns, but it also includes lots of information on the Icelandic sock knitting history and books like that are totally up my alley. Can't wait to start reading and hm, maybe even cast on.
