Knitting tours in 2011
After our first successful summer of knitting tours we can’t wait to offer more to wonderful knitters that want to come and join us! The following tours all happening in 2011:
Knit to the music
Want to knit during the day and listen to pop/rock/indie bands all night long!! If the answer is yes you should definitely join us for the knitterly musical tour of the year organized in conjunction with the popular Iceland Airwaves music festival. You will stay downtown Reykjavík where all the good stuff is happening this time of year. You will learn to knit a classic Icelandic Lopapeysa (lopi sweater), get a one-of-a-kind photography for knitters class, indulge in copious amounts of fantastic fibers and you will enjoy yummy local food. All in the good company of fellow knitters and a true knitting rockstar tutor… Click here for more info.
The South coast and Faroe Islands
We probably don’t need to say much to convince knitters that this is a good idea. Combining the experience of Icelandic and Faeroese knitting. The tour takes us along the South coast of Iceland past black desert sands and glacial lagoons. On the way east we will experience Icelandic knitting and wool in museums, farms and meet local knitters. We sail over the oceans South East to the Faroe Islands where we will dive into the heritage and wonderfulness of the local knitting world. Some days later we will return to Reykjavík by flight and explore the knitterly wonders of the Northernmost capital in the world.
