  Hi everyone! Finally we have more daylight! Yes!   The other evening we enjoyed LUX light show. Helsinki Cathedral looked like this here on my blog in 2011 in daylight       In the evening it looked like this (too many people and other ‘blocks’ to shoot better photos, sorry)       […]

There’s a peculiar vehicle on the loose! The Lace Bus is cruising through Vantaa on the line 55, until the end of September. It’s the creation of artist Virpi Vesanen-Laukkanen, famous of her candy wrapper dresses, and a part of OTTO- exhibition, recently opened in Vantaa Art Museum. I’ve been lucky to visit the bus […]

Just knit it! -

I don't seem to take time to blog very often, but here's proof that at least I'm knitting. And there's more where these came from, albeit unblocked and with ends to weave in.

I'm so behind on this blogging thing, I need to get my act together! It's New Year already and I'm still into summer knitting. Yeah well, life kind of got in the way. Between getting a full time job and opening up an online yarn shop.. there just wasn't that much free time I guess. Also blogger was acting up. In a bad way! But it seems to be behaving today so here goes.. Some lacy things, from this summer.   My little girl needed something to wear for a wedding, and this little shrug was...

Minulla on pitkään ollut lankavarastossani luonnonvalkoista lankaa, joka on kehrätty Helmi-lampaasta. Ajattelin sen olevan worsted-vahvuista lankaa. Vyötteessä ei lukenut muita speksejä ja vyyhdit ovat 130-180 grammaisia. Halusin varmistaa, että olin oikeassa langanpaksuudesta. Langan paksuuden määrittäminen on helppoa WPI-metodilla eli Wraps per inch, jossa lankaa kiedotaan tasapaksuisen esineen (esim. kynä, paksu neulepuikko, viivotin tai pahvin pala) ympärille ja lasketaan...

It was time for Lux Helsinki again! My friend and I braved the -17C (-26 with wind chill...) weather for a lovely hour admiring the light installations. ( You can read more of them here. ) It was so cold even my camera thought I was kidding by taking it out... The presidential palace was pink.... :) My favorite was this black lit Flowers of Life.  It was simply magical. This one had a lovely steampunkish feel. We finally made our way to our favorite café for tea and cake. And warmth.. oohhh...

Is This (photographic) Art? -

Ran into the concept of artworld and its interesting definitions. One specifically caught my attention, namely one by Howard Becker ( Art Worlds . Berkley : University of California Press, 1982). The basic idea is that artworlds are communities of networked individuals and that art is collective actions within the community. To blend in some Forrest Gump - Art is what artist does, sir! Thinking it like this makes it easier to accept that there no (and can't be) specifiq measures on defined...

This year I spent 2 weeks in the beautiful Ireland.  Hospitality of Irish people is incredibly awesome. Ok, now I just let the pictures tell most of the story:   Rosslare beach   Jane´s garden. I gave this painting away for charity sale for Ten Foundations, that will be held later on in Belfast so it will be up for grabs. Jane Meyler has also collected incredible work´s of other artist´s, so please stay tuned for this exhibition. http://www.tenfoundations.org/  Hook Head, oldest...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE I hope this finds you well! New week; I get to start a new quilt but before diving into the new one, I need to tell you about the last. Last week I searched the internet for January poems and quotes. I have tried to focus on the day I have, be it cold or mild, snowy or clear skies and not to complain (too much!) and wish for the spring (too soon!). I found this poem by Patricia Hampl and love the way she describes this season. “The cold was our...

Purple crafts -

Happy with my finished Christmas decoration! Starched lace crochet. Here's the house without lights: I sewed the roof pieces together at the top but the roof itself is just set on top of the walls. This makes it easier to fit the lights.     This was the first time I tried this and I'm happy with most things. I starched this using 50-50 sugar-water solution. Next time I might use glue-water to make it harder.  Haven't decided yet where I will display the house!

I received the final package of my Secret Pal 11. As soon as I got the big box in my hands at the post office I realised this was going to be something really grand. Made haste, got home and immediately opened the box. Someone else was interested, too. Sain viimeisen Secret Pal 11-vaihdon paketin. Se oli täynnä ihanuuksia ja lämpöä.   First thing to get my attention was the wonderful scent from the small (homemade?) gingerbreads. What a lovely idea! I'm munching them as we speak...

Olen ollut reipas tyttö hankkimaan Ilun ihania, käsin värjättyjä lankoja. Vasta nyt sain jotain valmiiksikin. malli: Lace Baktus ( ravelry ) lanka: Ilun värjäämää 100 % merinovillalankaa, 70 g puikot: 4mm muuta: ohjeesta poiketen lisäykset joka toinen kerta Koska minulla oli vain 100 g lankaa, tein huiviin lisäykset joka toinen kerta (vinkin bongasin Kaisan blogista). Tarkoitus oli saada kaikki lanka käytetyksi punnitsemalla puolivälin kohta. Käytössäni oli manuaali...

Jag är ju inte så bra på det här med sjalar. Jag använder inte sådana. Egentligen använder jag inte så mycket överhuvudtaget av det jag stickar, konstigt nog. Tur då att jag har en dotter som gärna tar på sig mina stickade plagg (så länge de är rooosa..) och ett antal kompisar som ibland vill ha nya sockor (eller som inte täcks säga nej.. ;-) Hursomhelst så har jag nu stickat en liten sjal. En spetsig sjal. Nästan en spetssjal ju! Och den är till mig. Eller ja, vi får...

Life thru a Lens -

This picture was taken with my New Nikon D80 + 50mm f1.8 lens. This was first attempt at light trails. And, even though this isn't a black & white photo, I thought i'd share this with you. I liked the look and feel of this picture.. Camera: Nikon D80 Focal Length: 50mm f number: f16 Exposure Time: 20 Secs

It's hard to start writing after a long pause. Actualy, I have been thinking about writing here for a long time. I just haven't done it. I partly blame writer's block and partly thesis... I also wasn't sure if to start blogging again about a trip to a volcano or about knitting. Well, even though some of you might prefer the volcano, you'll get knitting pictures for now. There are less pictures of my projects than of the volcano, so it's simply easier. But I promise the volcano pics later! Even...

Delft Daily Photo -

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny weather and so we decided to take a little walk outside the city center of Delft. Here's what we saw: Delftse blauw mosaic. And someone thought to be funny. It's Kanaalweg (Canalstreet) rather than "analstreet". Waterboats are back! It's official, spring is here! Where are we, in Mexico? Flowers blossoming! Water sparkling! Careful now. The view from a distance. The church tower faaar away is the Old Church . Kwik-e-mart. Going to a tunnel. Flood of light...

I've been on the road and at various places during the last few weeks, and somehow have managed to develop a backlog of projects and yarns to photograph and report. I'll start from the project completed after the scarf in the last post: Ishbel . Yarn: Handmaiden Casbah sock yarn, 115g/325m  Needles: 4mm Addi Lace Size: small (wingspan about 120cm) After the small scarf shown in the last entry I wanted to try more lace without having to buy yarn for it. I had bought two skeins of Casbah at the...

Today I found something on facebook: a video of solar bottle light in the Philippines. I just came from there three weeks ago. We battled with the lack of electricity at times. And we read our books with the help of a flashlight. These families living in the urban poor areas are living without light all the time. How innovative is the solar bottle light!

Is This (photographic) Art? -

I'll be celebrating the 170 years of photography by learning about the art part in fine art photography. Not being a photography or art student, I'll need to set up my own method and goals of learning - the curriculum. Collaborative efforts are welcome by the way... I'll be defining and refining this curriculum in upcoming posts but in the meantime I need to make some peak previews. In the previous post I was wondering how can one tell - as a consumer of art - the difference between a...

Friday`s Project -

Aika monen päivän kuvat on nyt jäänyt julkaisematta kun en vain ole jaksanut blogia päivittää. Nyt tulee kuitenkin tämän päivän asua ja kyllä mä niitä edellisiäkin lupaan laittaa. Tonne kouluun on välillä vaikea valita vaatteita tai ainakin kenkiä kun ei voi hirveän korkeissa koroissa painaa ompelukoneen poljinta. Perjantait on kuitenkin pelkää teoriaa joten silloin voi sitten revitellä! Ajattelin kyllä että ainakin sitten talveksi hankin jotkut sisäkengät joita...

Materian ihmeellinen maailma -

Let me introduce some of my latest shoe shoppings! Actually I bought these Minna Parikkas Starlet pumps as a 30-year peresent for my self. I was wearing them at my birthday party :) I love the red patent leather and a heart shaped pattern in them! I found them used, so I would say they were inexpensive. I found these Vivienne Westwood Melissa pumps as used too. I love smell of the rubber :D I love pink! I'm just not a pink person, if I can say it that way. Pink clothes does not suit me very...

I do still knit! I dyed a skein of KnitPicks bare lace green and it came out so beautiful I just couldn't imagine parting from it. Then the new Knitty came out and there was a perfect pattern for this yarn, Citron (or in my case, Lime). Here's a start: Perfect no-brain-knitting while watching telly or surfing.
