It’s a tiny harvest this year. 🌼🌼🌼🌼

The light on my bike ride home was so beautiful 🚲 I stopped and took a photo! β˜€οΈ Casting on a sweater tonight πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ #verbalong #avfkw #averbforkeepingwarm #dreareneeknits #avfkwpioneer

Callie is working in the madder garden at @avfkw. β€œI’m helping guys!” 🌱 #avfkw #averbforkeepingwarm #calliestyle

My new favorite yarn. (Yes @robin.lawson & all my non-knitting friends, knitters definitely have favorite yarns. Usually more than one. πŸ˜‰) This is Dawn from @avfkw πŸŒ₯ 75% organic wool / 25% organic cotton ⛅️ soft, bouncy, delicious, and four unbelievable natural colors 🌀 I’ve been knitting up a sea of hats (including while walking to work) and now I can’t wait to plan a sweater, I am dying to use the color compass. #avfkw #averbforkeepingwarm #verbalong

Dried coreopsis flowers from a couple of summers ago 🌼 I had a tiny little #avfkwdyeday early this morning 🌼 I hope everyone has fun at their natural dye parties today! 🌼 This is wool flannel from @avfkw with a sampler of coreopsis flowers, seeds, & stems, marigold petals & seeds, and more. #avfkw #averbforkeepingwarm #verbalong

15 rows to go on my deadline knitting! (I’m going to a wedding in two days.) 1 strand of @avfkw shimmering tussah and 1 strand of @habutextiles kakishibu cotton tape held together to make a lacy Amime top. πŸ‚πŸ #avfkw #verbalong #naturallydyed

I love knitting. πŸŒ’

One of my favorite parts of Iceland is the tenacity of plant life, growing amongst rocks and crags, high in the mountains and next to the beach. This is a feeling I’m trying to capture and remember when I’m feeling helpless about the bad things going on in the world. 🌱🌱🌱 I want to give a huge thank you to @avfkw, we wouldn’t be here without you for so many reasons. From opening my eyes to the fiber communities across the globe, to every traveling tip, to being an inspiration to me and so many people about how to be a strong and loving human being in this world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❀️ Also thank you to @adriennerodriguez, @hizknits, and @ffrench for Iceland travel tips (especially about food πŸ˜‰). ✈️ see you all soon!

Today was our last full day in Iceland. Now we are packing to return to real life. I spent some time today thinking about why I was calling home β€œreal life”, and why wasn’t my trip to Iceland part of my real life too? It turns out it is. Soon it will be a fond memory that Nik and I share. And maybe there is more traveling in my future! I’ve never had the travel bug the way some of my friends have, but perhaps that has changed. πŸŒŽπŸŒπŸŒπŸ‘

At our Airbnb last night, a small herd of horses walked eagerly over and surrounded us, nuzzling and prodding us with their noses. It felt very healing, warm friendly bodies and manes blowing in the wind. Until one of them tried to eat my Iberian Discovery - hey now!!
