Ever since the crash, Ragga Eiriksdottir has been earning a living with her knitting, publishing books and running a series of ‘‘knitting tours’’ around Iceland. ‘‘Knitting is the opposite of idolizing money,’’ she explained. ‘‘Knitting embodies thriftiness and is something old that has been with the nation forever.’’
