This sunday I went to a lecture at Nordatlantens Brygge in Copenhagen on the history of the Icelandic sweater (Lopapeysa). So naturally I had to wear the one I made last winter, from the yarn I bought in Iceland two summers ago.
The lecture was held by the amazing Ragga. She arranges knitting travels in Iceland. She is a really nice and cool person.
It was a very inspiring lecture. Ragga talked a lot about the Icelandic knitting tradition, how the Lopi yarns are made and how they can be put into use.
I got a lot of new information, that I will surely use in my lecture in Kyoto in March.
Thanks for a nice afternoon, Ragga!
