Valentine’s Day – Knitting with Love

One of our customers sent us this awesome picture of her Plötulopi yarn that she was currently using to knit her favorite Icelandic wool sweater.

All of sudden she noticed the heart-shape in the middle her plate of lopi and she wanted to share it with us and we couldn’t help but share the love, especially since Valentine’s day is coming up this weekend.

I guess this is just a proof that Icelandic knitting yarn is filled with pure love from inside out.. what do you think? :)


Are you guys knitting anything special for Valentine’s day? Keep us posted :)
