Icelandic knitting

In my quest to better myself as a knitter, I attended two workshops by the awesome Ragga Eíriksdottír, organized by my favorite local yarn store. On Fridaynight I learned all sorts of techniques to make the perfect mitten (not yet finished, so no pictures for you there), and all Sunday I spent making a little hooded cardigan in the traditional Icelandic way.

And knitting the traditional Icelandic way means: knitting in the round and then cutting your garment. Yes. CUTTING. Also known as steeking. Very, very scary indeed, but awesome once done succesfully!
