I’ve been slowly collecting wool yarn for some undetermined special project that never ended up happening. I know I’ve been wanting to knit a lopapeysa for a while now, but I didn’t want to learn on lopi, the Icelandic sheep’s wool yarn, because it is pricey and I thought it’d be a waste to use to learn on.
But I took an accounting of my wool yarns, and discovered that I have enough to make a peysa (it isn’t a lopapeysa because it doesn’t use lopi) with my weird random assortment of wool yarns. So I decided to make this Frankenstein Peysa as practice, leading up to buying a bunch of lopi and making a proper lopapeysa.
I’ve been using this pattern and so far so good.
Without further ado, here is…the Frankenstein Peysur!!!!
As it exists thus far. I like that I’m using a lopapeysa pattern, but am making it with a random assortment of weird colored yarns. At least it is wool, thanks to my obsession with wool. TO BE CONTINUED…

This is going to look awesome. Hope it’s ready in time for our trip to Iceland next summer.
Awesome! Icelandic sweaters are so gorgeous.
