So we returned last weekend and I came back with 17 skeins of yarn! All the Lopi brand - 10 of the Alafoss (somewhat bulky) and 7 of the light. And all for under $50!!

I couldn't get pics to load as attachments, so I figured I'd just post another entry with this pic. This is why I loved the prices in Vik!! ;-)

We just went to a very basic supermarket - almost like a really old bad K-mart but with food and produce, and there was this entire section with yarn - and some really nice wool yarn - some hand made

This is for a friend's baby (about 6 months old now) named Hudson. They live in Austin. I used Paton's Classic Wool and size 7s.

Hey there - we were going to Mali (West Africa) in July/August but now we might change our plans and go to Iceland instead. Anyone been? Or know of a farm/LYS/wool manufacturer we should go visit?

Well, I'm back - got caught in some rain on the way back - and it was an amazing day. I'm thinking next year we should have a men's knitting retreat in Estes Park the weekend of the wool market.
