New knitting pattern for Icelandic sweater in Plötulopi is finished and available for sale

I have finished a pattern description of a Icelandic sweater I designed and knitted for a couple of years ago.It is knitted in 2 threads of Plötulopi, which can also be changed to 1 thread of Lopi light. It is one of my absolute favourite sweaters. I especially like the bright pink color and the simple and typical Icelandic pattern. It also has a sidelong zipper.
Here is how the front cover of the patter looks like:

My latest design - Icelandic Sweater with sailing boats - almost completed!

My latest design is almost finished. I am really satisfied with the result so far. I really like the outcome. It looks great, I think. Sailing boats sailing on ocean waves. It will be perfect cold evenings at the sail boat or yacht. When it is windy,a bit rainy and/or a bit cold Icelandic Sweaters are just perfect.
I will of course sell this pattern in my webshop when it is finished. First I need to shoot some nice pictures of someone in the sweater and then write the pattern.
The sweater is made in Álafoss Lopi:

Two sweaters on the needles!

I started to knit a sweater in Plötulopi (1 thread). I got my inspiration from the felted mittens I made last month. So I started right after I finished them. So far I have only done one arm.
We will see how this sweater turns out. I am excited since I am doing it straight from my head. I just hope it will be ok. Of course I document what I am doing so I can make a pattern of it later if it turns out all right.

But then I got an order of a sweater with sailing boats. So I started to design a new sweater and wrote everything down in a new pattern description. After that I could just start to knit. And when I am finished I just need a picture of it and I need to calculate sizes before I have a new pattern to sell. I am making it in Álafoss Lopi, as the original Icelandic sweaters. I have just almost finished one arm. I will continue to knit the other arm and the whole sweater now during my holiday. I need to finish this sweater before I continue with the one for me above.
I have a feeling this sweater will look very nice.
