Knitted Lovikka Mittens in Álafoss Lopi

Here comes a picture of the finished lovikka mittens before they were washed. They almost look like the famous Swedish Lovikka mitten but made in Icelandic yarn (100% wool) instead. Álafoss Lopi is very good for these mittens. It is perfect. Warm and nice!

If you want to knit these mittens you can buy the pattern in english in my webshop. Pay by credit card and get the pattern sent by PDF. See link below. The mittens comes in sizes from children to adults. I will also put out mittens for sale now and then. So be on the lookout.

Knitted Love Mitten - for 2

My brother got his gift but has not opened it yet since he was celbrating Chirstmas with his dad (we have not the same dad). He will open it today when my mum and sister are visiting him. We will see what he says. It is for him and his girlfriend of course. He may not know what it is. It is a love mitten: a mitten for 2 people. You just stick your hand in together with your girlfriend´s hand and you will be able to hold hands inside the mitten. Cosy!
I have to knit one for me and my darling too.
This is how the mitten looks like:

It is available for sale in Swedish via this link:

Now during Christmas I have also knitted a pair of mitten in Álafoss Lopi. It resembles the well known Lovika mittens (well known in Sweden at least). I will put out a pattern for sale in english in my webshop very soon. I just need to wash them and take a picture then they are complete. I used brown as main color. I will soon put out a picture of the result.
I so want to knit a pair of blackish grey for my self soon.

Right now I am knitting a pair of shorts in wool for my boyfriend. He is going by bike to work almost every day even in the winter. And his ass gets a bit cold he says. So this is just perfect for him. He can use them over his regular underwear while he is biking to work.

After that I have also started to knit a Christmas gift. I started the day before yesterday and I will be done this evening. It is a mitten for two. A lovemitten. It will be a gift to my brother and his new girlfriend. I will put out a picture as soon as I have one. I have also a small baby sweater in Álafoss Lopi going on. But I have not done much on it since I started with the dog sweaters.

Icelandic knitted Sweater for a Dog

I have made a Icelandic knitted sweater for a dog. It is knitted in Lopi light (léttlopi). Such a cute little sweater. It fits small dogs such as Chihuahua and small badger-dogs. I made it in rust heather, which I really like. I could do a sweater for myself in that color.

This is how it looks like:

It might be difficult to imagine it on a dog so here comes a picture of a dog wearing a sweater like this:

I will be selling handknitted sweater like this one in my webshop. See link below:

Another thing I just need to write about is this lovely mitten for two:

I will knit one as a Christmas gift very soon. Lovely gift for a couple inlove. You only need 2 hanks of Álafoss Lopi, 100g in different colors to knit it.

On the needles right now I actually have another sweater for a dog. This time I am doing on in size Large. The one I just finished is in Small. After that one I was thinking about doing one i Medium too. But in between I probably need to knit the love-mitten above since Christmas is getting closer.

Another Icelandic collar

I started another Icelandic collar a while ago where I changed black to white and white to black. It is also very beautiful. I finished it and washed it a while ago. Here is the result:

The collar itself is for sale via this link:

After that I have started with 2 other projects. One is a knitted Sweater for a dog (in Lopi light) and the other is a Sweater for a one year old baby (in Álafoss Lopi).
