Iceland Trip - Knits Spotting (part 2)

The Handknitting association of Iceland has several locations in Reykjavik. I recommend going to the location on Skólavörðustígur since that's the location that sells yarn, has the largest selection of hand-knitted items, and it is located on a street with many design/crafty stores.

The first three pictures are the window displays at the Laugavegur location.

Aren't these little felted elves cute? I liked them so much that I bought three of them in various colors (you'll see them in an upcoming post).

This last picture is of the Skólavörðustígur location. Click on it to see more details:
- in the foreground you can see the plates of unspun Lopi (Plötulopi)
- behind them, there are rows of many beautiful hand-knitted sweaters.
- all the way in the back you can spot the cubes of yarn for purchase (Alafoss Lopi, Lett Lopi, Loðband, and Plötulopi among others)
