macro

I´m fascinated by my new macro-lens and all it´s possibilities. Looking at those pictures, one can discover things that normally aren't visible. I guess it takes a lot of practice to learn how to manage a macro-lens but it´s really worth it and practicing is so much fun! Here are my first shots:


one thing I didn´t realize was how interesting portraits can turn out, using a macro-lens.

this one is one of my favorites...

Diversity

I have a mission. I really want my boys to be proud of what and who they are. I also want them to be tolerant of other people and to understand that diversity is a wonderful thing. Wouldn´t the world be a boring place if we where all the same?

Viktoría


The first little thing I finished this year was the collar Viktoría from the book María Heklbók. This quick little project only took me an evening to make (while watching a movie) and it´s perfect if you want to use up some of your leftover yarn. Viktoría has been on my to-do-list since I got this book and since it was so quick & easy I´m sure I´m going to make more of those. I always feel like I´m wearing my Sunday-dress when I put on a nice collar - just love them & want them in thousand different colors! 
 
Details:
I used 2 kind of cotton in my favorite colors,
Schachenmayr nomotta Catania Fine in mustard-yellow and dark brown (from "Storkurinn") 
Strikkebogen pimabomull blue/green (from "Litla Prjónabúðin")  
Crochet hook nr. 3 
I added one, last row
