Classic Icelandic Cardigan
The husband and I went to Iceland in February 2010 to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary under the Northern Lights. While we were there, I insisted we make a stop at the Lopi outlet store, where we each picked out a pattern and the yarn for it. I finished the husband's sweater first, then started mine. It languished until 2013 because of my fear of cutting the steek to put in the zipper. I finally sucked it up, took it on, and finished it up right. Interestingly, I got a book on Icelandic handknits for Christmas, and both this cardigan and the sweater I made for the husband were in it. I guess both are basically classic or prototypical Icelandic knits.
