    I love your pictures of Iceland, the beautiful sweaters, which you really need in Iceland and you’re ever patient families modelling for you. I am an avid knitter and my sister and I travel to Iceland last summer to explore the country that our grandmother came from. We got to visit beautiful places and meet wonderful cousins along the way. Of course, I came home with yarn and hopes to knit up some of your beautiful patterns. Congratulations on 10 years creating such a great business.

    Great pictures. Always nice to see kids traveling at such a young age, and being exposed to different places and cultures. We and my family were there also in sept/oct. Cheers and happy travels!

    Sweaters are really good, but i am not able to guess do you sell the sweaters or not ?

      Hi Ashwin – sorry, we don’t sell the sweaters, just the patterns
