Heima

August 25, 2009

“Heima means at home.” ~Heima by Sigur Rós

This sweater is all about being calm. I originally purchased the yarn to make a warm, comfortable sweater that I could wear around the house on my days off.

When the original pattern just wasn’t working out, I ripped out the project, chose new contrast colors, and started on a different pattern. This sweater is inspired by the film Heima by the band Sigur Rós. Their music is what I turn to when I need a calming presence.

Right now, I look over Lake Superior in my Icelandic sweater, but I would love to bring it with me to Iceland someday. Perhaps by the time I make it there, Sweetie and I will have a collection of Icelandic sweaters. They’re quick and pleasant to knit and are quite practical with our Northern climate.

In the meantime, this lake of ours will do.

Pattern: 6 & 7 from Reynolds Lopi #82228
Yarn: Reynolds Lopi 4 sk. #53 (MC), 1.5  sk. #85 (A),  1 sk. #421 (B), 1 sk. #87 (C)
Needles: US 7 & 10 Denise circulars and misc. dpns
Made for: Me
Timeline: July 18-August 5 2009
Modifications: Knit to a tighter gauge for a smaller fit.
Worst Part: Having to face the facts and rip out a project I didn’t love anymore.
Best Part: Finishing off my very oldest WIP and loving the result. That feels really good.

    I really like this sweater. Good for you, it is always hard to rip out and start over. Looks like it paid off for you in the end though!
