a month of craft photos?

I stumbled over this interesting post (from january 2012) on the "untangling-knots" blog, on a "month of crafts photos"... I thought, why not join, even if it´s a bit late, since this sounds so interesting and creative? 
I´m going to post a few pictures at a time, once a week instead of 1 picture a day, since I haven´t really got the time to post photos every day of the week, starting Friday the 9th of August.

Who want´s to join me?

I was walking in 101 Reykjavík yesterday... and how could I pass this amazing view without taking 
a picture first?

Hexagons for a baby-girl

I´ve been wanting to make the hexagon-sweater from the book "Þóra heklbók" by Tinna Þórudóttir Þorvaldsdóttir for a while and since I was going to become an aunt for the second time this winter, I started working on it a couple of months before the little one was born.

It was really fun, exciting and surprising making this one. The interesting thing about this sweater is, that it is made out of 2 hexagons.

I used wonderful, soft, warm and practical Yaku superwash merino wool by Strikkebogen (bought in "Litla Prjónabúðin") and hook nr. 3,5. My sister  told me she wanted happy colors for her baby and that´s why I went for this strong/intensive color-combo.

I had fun making it and I really like the outcome - I´d love to try making this one, using léttlopi...

Button from my button-stash: buttons are important and I really LOVE this one!

Always live in the present moment:

“Walking had been easy, because his knapsack was nearly empty and he had no worries on his mind. He felt happy about the wood and the weather, and himself. Tomorrow and yesterday were both at a distance, and just at present the sun was shining brightly between the birches, and the air was cool and soft.”
