While the coffee was brewing this past weekend, I rummaged through the yarn stash looking for a little inspiration. I was thrilled when I stumbled across these two beauties tucked away inside a Quince & Co. bag behind my knitting chair! This beautiful Léttlopi Icelandic Wool was bought from Tolt Yarn and Wool many months ago (along with my Farm to Needle Tote Bag) and I completely forgot I had them!
This workhorse, aran-weight yarn is traditionally used for Lopapeysa, Icelandic color work sweaters, but I'm planning to knit them into some warm, fingerless mitts to get me through the winter. Pattern suggestions are greatly appreciated!
If you haven't yet visited the Tolt website, I hope you take a few minutes to explore all the wooly-goodness it has to offer. Anna Dianich has created a gorgeous little world for fiber-lovers, including events like Camp Tolt, knitting classes, and a beautifully curated shop. When I ordered my tote and wool, the packaged arrived with lovely brand gestures including a hand-written thank you note and two yarn samples—such a sweet little way to bundle an order!
Tell me—what are your favorite online knitting shops?
