Last week I was in Iceland: walking through the trendy streets of Reykjavik, bathing in surreal Blue Lagoon, enjoying beautiful sceneries under the midnight sun and freezing my fingers because I didn't bring my mittens with me...come on we were in June! Iceland is a wonderful country that you can't visualize accurately until you see it by yourself but you can always try! Iceland has snowy volcanoes, surprising geysers, luscious green moss, powerful waterfalls, moon like fields and milky blue water. It does smell like eggs sometimes but you can't focus on a small detail like that when you are surrounded by such beauty!
This week, back to Montreal, I suffocate (35C) whenever I go outside for more than 30 minutes. To protect my pale skin against the sun I decided, even if it had bad reviews, to make the hat in Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing book. It's not complicated to make but, I warn you, the brim is outrageously big! Cut at least 1 inch or you will get hit by a car because you didn't see it coming!
