Kyrrð

November 17, 2010

I have had the idea to knit a scarf with Eingirni for the longest time.  Even before I actually thought about knitting it this idea was brewing, and I really had no idea.

My mom had a beautiful (at least in my memory), white lace scarf knit with this Icelandic yarn.  I remember it being so incredibly warm and cozy.  The scarf is long gone and no one knows what could have possibly happened to it!  So sad!! 

I have been thinking about this scarf through the years and then earlier this year I just knew I had to make another one but with its own uniqueness……..so I added a hood.  If my memory serves me right then my mom´s scarf had a feather and fan motif….which I wasn´t really to excited about for this piece.

I love the two leaf motifs that I used.  They look beautiful together and compliment each other so well.  They look equally gorgeous when used on their own I think. 

The leaf borders drape down the front of the hood and all the way to the bottom of the shawl.  In the back I added them to the shawl as well to give it a more complete look.

When wrapped around once it can cover the shoulders like so, or it can be squished to gether by the neck.  I love the look of it this way, with the buttons showing in the back like that.  Wearing it like this would also make it easy to wear under a winter coat to keep extra warm.

The buttons  are ultra light (sounds like a tampon commercial) to not weigh down the fabric, Eingirni really is very light.  I wanted red buttons so they would look like little rose buds amidst all those leafs.

I would wear this piece with just about any outfit, whether it was dressy og casual…..maybe not with over sized T-shirts and old maternity sweatpants ( I do find myself wearing that on occasion……well too often now that I can just through a big winter coat over the mess for it not to be seen……..too much, but that´s another story)

I must say that I am absolutely in love with Kyrrð, well, as much as anybody could be in love with a thing (and it is possible, I am living proof, I frequently fall in love with shoes………..and I am not ashamed of it!)

    Ótrúlega fallegt hjá þér! Getur ekki verið að þú hafir verið með mér í bekk í Hagaskóla? 😉 Getur skoðað hluta af því sem ég hef verið að prjóna á ravelry (heiti KHW).
