About natural knitting

My name is Sigrún Arna and I started knitting when I was 14 years old. Since then I have hardly put my knitting down and I have learned an incredible amount and made great progress in all these years. Over the years, I have continued with all kinds of needlework and almost all needlework interests me. In addition to knitting, I have mainly been into patchwork, crochet and embroidery.

I have three children who have often brought me pictures and ideas of clothes and asked me to conjure up the clothes they want.

In July 2019, I took part in the Yarn Walk competition, it was the first time I made a recipe for something I had knitted. After that I got a lot of encouragement from friends and family to keep making recipes, which I have. I have published about 40 recipes and always have a few in my "back pocket" that I am working on.

Sigrún Arna is my name and I have been an enthusiastic knitter since the age of fourteen. Throughout the years I have gained a lot of knowledge and improved my techniques. I have tried out different kinds of handicrafts and am interested in all kinds of crafts. Besides knitting, I have mainly done patchwork, crochet, and embroidery.

It has been my three children who have inspired my ideas for knitting. They have come to me with requests and suggestions, and I have enjoyed making them for them to wear. More recently, I have enjoyed knitting pieces for my grandchildren.

July 2019, I participated in a competition in Iceland. It was the first time I created a pattern for something I had knitted. Three years on and the number of my patterns is now more than thirty! I love doing this and have had a lot of support and encouragement from my family and friends. I am determined to develop my patterns, and I continue to have a couple up my sleeve that I work on!

I have a webpage where I sell my patterns and gift package, but the amount is in Icelandic krónur (ISK). There is more variety than on Ravelry.com, so be sure to check it out! I try to keep the price similar in both places, but it is difficult due to changes in the exchange rate. The gift packages are in 3 languages.
