Sweater update

December 5th, 2011 by Rebekka in Uncategorized


I’ve been creating sweaters from Icelandic wool for a good three years now.   After giving this some serious thought, I’ve decided to set myself a limit.

I’m now working on sweaters #78 and #79.   Once I reach #100,  I will no longer continue to offer them.   I feel I’m already spending far too much time knitting instead of working on my photography and other projects, and that’s just not the direction I had in mind for myself.

It’s not that I don’t enjoy making them, the fact that each one is unique and custom-designed keeps things from becoming too boring, but the “painstakingly hand-made”  factor is taking its toll,  stealing far too much time from other potentially time-consuming projects I have lined up in my head clamoring for some attention.

So, in short.  There are 18 sweaters left before I reach 100.  As I mentioned already,  each one has a unique design and color pattern based on the buyers wishes, and is made to fit custom measurements.

Each one comes with a label reading “handmade and designed by Rebekka Guðleifs”  as proof of authenticity.

Current price is 80.000 ISK (icelandic krona) for a zipped hoodie or zipped w/ standup collar.  Check online conversion charts for the amount in your countries currency.     Shipping is 4.000 ISK. 

Preferred method of payment is via Paypal, although direct bank transfer is also an option.
