One of the amazing thing as a knitwear designer is to see people knit your designs. Blogs and Ravelry (and various other websites) makes it easy to share pictures of our finished projects, and I delight in browsing through them. The other day, Hélène Magnússon of the Icelandic Knitter posted some amazing pictures of the Eyjafjallajökull shawl – taken at the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland. I asked Hélène if I could share, and she graciously agreed to let me do so.
This is Hélène’s own version of the shawl – knit in two colours to symbolize the lava and the volcano.
And here is Hélène modelling another shawl knit by Leah. Hélene organizes knitting tours to Iceland which combine hikes through the wilderness with knitting workshops and a healthy dose of Icelandic culture.
It’s amazing to think that my Eyjafjallajökull pattern made it to the volcano.
On a completely different note, we have a winner!!! The random number generator chose Valerie of Wandering Cat Studios.
I decided that it would be nice to have a second prize, just because….. so I consulted the almighty number generator yet again, and Miranda wins a pattern of her choice from my Ravelry store. Perhaps Eyjafjallajökull? Let me know, and it will be on its way.
