Blue Sky Wrap

Iceland is much on the map at the moment and unfortunately, it’s not always for a good reason what with the collapsed economy and Eyjafjallajökull sending ash plumes into the atmosphere causing havoc to much travel. I have dreamt of visiting Iceland ever since I was on the Faeroe islands. The rather hot underground of Iceland fascinates me and I would love to visit those hot springs.

At the moment I can’t make it to Iceland so I have decided to invite Iceland into my life here in Ireland instead and in an attempt to show Eyjafjallajökull a bit of goodwill and in the hope that it’s rage will soon stop, I work in many balls of the most pretty sky blue Ístex Einband, it’s pure Icelandic lace-weight wool and it’s slowly but truly being worked into a huge shawl of Blue Sky that I will just love to wrap around my shoulders both summer and winter. I am really enjoying crocheting this and it was nice to work out the pattern to get a balanced fabric. I really hope Eyjafjallajökull is tuned into my frequency.

I have yet again realized that I am more about process than product but that’s another post worth of words…

Note:
For eye witness account of life with Eyjafjallajökull check out Harpa’s blog where she writes frequently about living with volcanoes – and knitting!
