By way of Iceland....
I have completed the first pair of mittens for the "Mittens for Akkol" December challenge thru CIC. While I hope to make several pairs from Sock-yarn scraps, these are made from a "lopi"- type yarn that came directly from Iceland. I purchased yarn to make a sweater last year, while in Iceland. The prices were so reasonable! Which I could have brought home much more, but we were with a group of travelers and somewhat limited in our luggage allowance.
The sweater could not be warmer! Partnered with a turtle neck and mitts, you are as warm as toast! Again - my avoidance of color!! Guess the mitts will not be too exciting for a young 'un. But, perhaps there is a color-shy child somewhere also!! I think I was one of those :)
