another "Kría"

I finished another Kría-shawl the other day and gave it to a very dear friend.
I used my own, naturally dyed yarn (dyed with Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) and some normal kambgarn from my stash... 

once again, I made an scalloped edging

 the brown colored yarn is my natural dyed yarn... can you see the wonderful irregularities?

this shawl was so perfect for my friend...

Word of the week: outlines

Like always, I had so much fun with this weeks "word of the week - outlines". 
I took me some time to shoot the pictures since it was raining a lot but here you go...

Street art in 101 Reykjavík

my own - I call it "a lot on my mind"... outlines only... 

my own - only circles in this one

Inside the Reykjavík concert hall "Harpa"

Outlines and framing in "Harpa"

on the streets of Reykjavík... 
I love trees... 
warm colors and outlines

crochet pendant

I improvised this crochet pendant the other day. As a base I used a coppar wire from a piece of an electric cord an electrician gave me. I crochet around the wire, did some embroidery and used a beautiful vintage flowerbutton from my button-collection. 

I like this little flowery-thing, but I'm having trouble finding the right chain for it... maby I should use a leather cord??? 

Do you have any ideas?
