Calligraphy Every Day 30: Icelandic Two-ply

This alphabet builds on English Two-ply from January 31, a yarn that makes a sweater you can wear indoors.  If you've ever tried on a sweater made with Icelandic Two-ply yarn, however, you'll understand why today's letters look thick, warm, and heavy.  

Take care to overlap the vertical strokes slightly in the middle, and keep the triangular white gap at the bottom and top of the stroke precise.  You need a little air in these ABCs. 

A rough-textured letter that gives the outdoor feel of heavy wool, chopped wood, and uneven stone.
