I like...

...this knitted chair designed by 
the danish designer Miriam Ortwed.
The large scale knit is made by hand using very large, 
customized knitting needles. The yarn is also custom made out of recycled cotton fibers

If you plan to go to Oslo it is worth while visiting the spectacular building of the Oslo Opera House(Operahuset). Designed by architects of SnØhetta and opened in 2008.
The architecture is very nordic, you may imagine that the building is an enormous glacier sliding into the fjord.
Creating the illusion of glistering ice by using glass,white granite and Italian marble.
I love the perforated wall panels by artist Olafur Eliasson. 
 -connecting land and sea-

 -3D wall inspired by slowly melting ice 
by Olafur Eliasson-
 -waving wood wall made of oak-
-on the slopes of the roof-

During our holiday there was a lot of time for crocheting. The scarf is not finished yet because I ran out of wool. After todays photo shoot with my friend Heleen I had to make this picture. I think the grey colors looks beautiful with her red hair!
