Lopapeysa

If you google lopapeysa (lopi sweater) and click images, the second and the third images on the page are mine – and there are two more not far below. I find that kind of strange, in light of the popularity of the lopapeysa, especially in the recent years. The first on is really bad – but I guess google does not care about that.

The second picture has been used sever times (without permission) by newspapers and such. I have not done anything about it, but it annoys me. It is so easy to as for permission (I do it all the time) and people have never said no yet.

Talking of lopapeysa, I have decided to go with the raglan decreases. They are quick and easy and I like how they look too.

The baby hat is done. I cast on last night, and finished it today. It’s dripping wet now and I will photograph it when it’s fully dry.
I can warmly recommend this pattern. It’s very quick and easy and free too.Ef gúggli, vinur okkar allra er beðinn um myndir af lopapeysum, eru önnur og þriðja myndin frá mér – og tvær í viðbót, ekki miklu neðar.
Mér finnst það frekar undarlegt, ekki síst í ljósi vinsælda lopapeysunnar á liðnum árum.
Fyrsta myndin (mín) er auk þess frekar slæm, en gúggla er sennilega alveg sama um það.

Mynd númer tvö hefur verið notuð í leyfisleysi, bæði af prent og vefmiðlum. Það á reyndar við um fleiri myndir frá mér líka, en þessi er „vinsæl”. Ég hef ekkert gert í því, en það pirrar mig samt smá, því það er svo auðvelt að biðja um leyfi (ég geri það mjög oft) og enginn hefur sagt nei hingað til.

Talandi um lopapeysur. Ég er búin að ákveða að hafa laskaermar á svörtu peysunni. Það er auðvelt og fljótlegt og svo finnst mér það frekar flott líka.

Ungbarnahúfan er tilbúin. Ég byrjaði á henni í gærkvöldi og kláraði hana í dag. Hún liggur rennblaut ofan á þurrkaranum núna og verður mynduð á morgun.

    hi, this is all a matter of SEO… if you follow the rules of Google, like… mentioning words several times, in this case Lopapeysa, having it as title in your post or using it as keyword… Google will *reward* you by putting the picture in the first row.. the more the word is mentioned, the more, your picture will show up and if other people use your title too, with or without permission, your picture will be up front.. A little help would be to mention copryright… one thing for sure, the sweater is fantastic and you have created something really beautiful…ciao ciao Christa

    Good point about the copyright. The pictures are clearly copyrighted on flickr, and I had a copyright widget on my old page, but I haven’t put one up here yet.

    Icelandic journalists mostly – but others too….

    Can I simply say what a comfort to find somebody that truly knows what they are
    discussing on the net. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More and more people have to look at this and understand
    this side of the story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular given that you most certainly have the gift.
