Lopapeysa Planning

I’m heading off to Iceland again later this week, it seems I can’t get enough of the place, and it just so happens that I’m taking the class Icelandic Yoke Design at Yarnover this April from Lars Rains. Lars wrote the book Modern Lopi and is known for his love of Lopi.

So of course, I’ll need to pick up my yarn while I am in Iceland, it’s about half the price as buying it here. I have two Icelandic sweaters already, one that is in shades of grey and white and the other is black with hot pink and red. Here are the two palettes in Lettlopi.
Lopi Version 1
Version 1 is shades of purple with white and light grey.
Lopi Version 2
Version 2 is blues with white and light grey. I wish the yarn came in either a light blue or something more in between these two.

Of course, it could all completely change up when I see the colors in person and what the stores have on hand. Now to figure out how much I might need…..

    • So jealous that you are going to Iceland again!! That place is on my bucket list! Have a great time! Those yarns look gorgeous!

      • I’m lucky because going to Iceland, especially in the winter, is pretty affordable from Minneapolis. It’s cheaper to get airfare and a hotel than flying to someplace like San Francisco.

    • We went to Iceland last year just loved it. But I was with people that did not knit although we walked and walked all over I never saw a yarn shop. Where to you go in Iceland to purchase yarn? I would love to know for our next trip.

      • The best place I’ve found is the Hand Knitting Association. They have two stores in Reykjavik. They have a ton of sweaters for sale, yarn and patterns. The yarn is kind of tucked into a back corner. I have heard you can also buy it in grocery stores but I never saw that. I also bought a sweater kit at a gift shop!
