I am so jealous! Brooklyn Tweed took a trip to Heimilisiðnaðarsafnið, the Icelandic Textile Museum, which I didn’t get to visit when I was there. Now I need to get back! Go check out their visit and beautiful pictures at their blog.

On my trip to Iceland I had the pleasure of visiting Heimilisiðnaðarsafnið (try saying that three times fast) – the Icelandic Textile Museum in Blönduós.

In a country where knitting is such an integral part of cultural history, I knew I was in for a treat. Below are some images of work from the museum’s collection – I remember being struck by how smart a lot of the knitting here is. I particularly love the use of tone and color throughout; the lace work was especially exciting…
