During our journey to Bolungarvik I tried to understand the breath-taking landscapes of Iceland through the various color layers on land, water and sky. By looking through these layers, absorbing and memorizing the magnificent sceneries became possible.
When I looked and walked around, I also found the same colors in various Icelandic yarn stores. Shelves filled with local wool had the exact colours I’d seen in the nature. I carefully picked the colour yarn that represented the landscapes etched into my mind.
Knitting connected me to the place. I have found knitting a shared tradition in all the remote northern locations I’ve visited. By knitting the sceneries to my mittens helped me to process the journey and warm my hands as well as mind.
I knitted to understand.
I knitted to be connected.
I knitted because I forgot my gloves home and my fingers were freezing.
