Did you know that March is Icelandic Wool Month at Tolt Yarn & Wool shop?  I've been following this beautiful shop based in Carnation, Washington on Instagram for several years, and have been continually impressed by their offerings and engagement with the fiber world.  I've also had a visit to Iceland on my bucket list since I become a knitter - staggeringly wild & beautiful countryside with a history of knitting? YES please!  So I've been loving following Tolt's Icelandic wool celebration on social media this month.  Here's a few blog posts + patterns to peruse that I've found really interesting:

Top row:

This Skogafjall sweater designed by Diana Walla for this year's Icelandic Wool Month; read about Diana's design inspiration here!

That post about Anna Dietrich's color inspiration for her own Skogafjall sweater

Bottom row:

That Icelandic edition of "Swatch of the Month" over on the Fringe Association all about the signature lopapeysa sweaters that have become a national symbol for Iceland

This Blaer Cardigan designed by Beatrice Perron Dahlen for Tolt's 2016 Icelandic Wool Month; I'm dreaming of a slightly cropped version of this gorgeous cardigan with bracelet length sleeves as an outer layer for some fall weddings I have coming up later this year!
