HÄSTHJÄRTA (Horse heart) - Icelandic children sweater with horses and hearts finished - Pattern description done - Woolen socks knitted

Before I started the horse sweater I finished another pair of woolen socks in Álafoss Lopi. they became apple green and pink striped and looks like this:

The horse sweater I call HÄSTHJÄRTA, which means horse hearts in Swedish. This sweater for children 4-14 years is now finished and I really like the outcome. The red colors is so autumn. Horses and hearts are also perfect for little girls. The knitting description can be found in my online webshop. It can be purchased safely by credit card and will be sent as a PDF-file.  Go and look in the  webshop Islina Garn och Design at:
Here is the final picture of the finished sweater. Now I only need to go out with my daughter and put it on a sunny Autumn day to get a nice picture.

At the moment I am knitting anothter SEGEL sweater, which is a Icelandic sweater with sailing boats. I made the last one to small. It was meant for a colleague of my spouse. So I just have to finish this sweater quickly now. I started the body.

Icelandic sweater with horses and hearts "HÄSTHJÄRTA" started

I have finally started to knit the Icelandic sweater HÄSTHJÄRTA (which means horseheart in Swedish). It is a pattern I have designed myself. It is knitted in Lopi light or Létt-lopi and it of course has hearts and horses in the pattern. This one is for my 4 years old daughter Olivia.
So far I really like it. I especially like the red colors. Olivia wanted some yellow in the sweater too she said so we have that too

More teal socks in Álafoss Lopi (Reynolds Lopi)

I have knitted a few more pair of teal socks / wool socks in Álafoss Lopi. 5 pair actually, but the last 2 pairs are not ready. I need to weave in loose ends and wash them before I take pictures of them. So I will only show 3 of the pairs here.

Here is one of the pairs in size 36, which will be for sale soon:

And then we have 2 other pairs to the right in the picture (the pink-blackish are old):

The blue-greenish socks are for my boyfriend and the brown-blackish socks are for me :)

After I have weaved in all loose ends in the 2 remaining pairs I will knit a Icelandic sweater with horses and hearts for my daughter. It is a design I made myself. It will be interesting to see how it comes out.

SEGEL - Icelandic knitted sweater with sailing boats

I just have to show a picture of the finished sailing boat sweater, which I finished 1 month ago. I took some photos of my boyfriend in the sweater last weekend. It turned out really nice. I really like it. My own design of course.
Here is a picture of only the sweater:
And then I made a front cover for the pattern description, which is for sale in the net shop Islina Garn och Design (www.islina.se/en)
And that picture looks like this:
I just can not take my eyes if this picture. It is so nice. Maybe my boyfriend looks a bit angry, he was too. He could not look happy he said. So it is nothing to do about that. I hope people like it anyway. I really need to knit another sweater like this soon. But I have so many project on my mind. A lot going on. First I need to finish more pairs of socks.
