Hi there, I’m back with the rest of my yarn haul from Iceland. This time I’m going to share with you this lovely knitting shop that I discovered on my last trip to Iceland. I learned about this shop from my friend and designer Cat Bordhi. When Cat does knitting retreats in Iceland, she brings her retreat-ees to this shop and that to me was a gauge of quality.
The name, Littla Prjonabudin, means the Little Knitting Shop but it’s not so little in real life. It is located not far from the supermarket I shared with you in my last post. This is not in downtown Reykjavik so you do have to know it’s there or you will not find it. The shop is run by a very nice young lady who accepted me taking some pictures of the inside of her shop.
She has a wonderful selection of yarns and accessories. All the brands you see and hear about online like Quince and Co, Twig and Horn, Fringe Supply Co, Hiya Hiya, Regia sock yarns and a selection of scandinavian yarns and at least one indie dyer from Finland called Knitlob’s Lair. She also has a great selection of knitting magazines like PomPom, Amirisu etc.
The interior is a little vintage looking and she has sofas and chairs to sit down and knit a few stitches.
Doesn’t this look inviting and tempting to you?
I could have made some serious damage there had I had the finances to! I wanted another Fringe supply co bag, A Twig and Horn tote bag, a couple of sweater quantities of Quince and Co yarns, 10 or so balls of Regia and Opal sock yarns and a few skeins of indie dyed yarns along with a lovely selection of knitting magazines and books! Yebb, I mostly wanted to buy EVERYTHING in there!
Not having unlimited cash for yarn I did have to limit myself and I purchased an issue of Amirisu, the one called Iceland and is mostly about knitting in Iceland and patterns inspired by Iceland. And then I purchased two skeins of Regia Pairfect sock yarn from the Arne and Carlos range.
I think these will make for very nice pairs.
And of course I had to try this new to me indie dyer from Finland, Knitlob’s Lair.
This is a 100 % superwash merino in fingering weight. I love the colors. I’m not sure what I’ll knit with this. Maybe a sockhead hat? Maybe a cowl? Maybe a pair of bedsocks? We’ll see.
So if you are ever in Iceland and want to visit a yarn shop, this would be a good candidate. She doesn’t have a web page really (it’s just a page with here address and FB details) but you can follow her and/or contact via her Fb page which by clicking here
This sums up my yarny adventures in Iceland for this time around. More to come on my trip to Glasgow. I hope you have enjoyed learning about this little yarn shop in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Until next time I hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of knitting time. See you soon 🙂
