Ins Blaue Hinein

Christmas Light on Regent Street, London. Last week we went just for one day to London. Unfortunately just one day. There is always too much to see and do, but this time we went especially for the Abstract Expression exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts. Work from American artists like Rothko, Pollock, and Still.  Huge canvases in the most incredible colors. This is art with an impact. No recognizable shapes or subjects, and yet, these works are really worth looking at for a long time. It wasn’t allowed to take pictures, so all I can do is talk about it. Check the link above for more info.
 

On our way to the boat to England, we passed Wassenaar, where a new museum is opened: Voorlinden. Here I made this weird picture of my husband standing on the floor of a swimming pool.

Knitted with 2 strands, one dark and one light and very soft yarn, a new cardigan. In the picture above the colours are quite right, the picture below is a bit off. Pattern: Weekend Walk by Drops.

This is the second cardigan I made with this pattern, and I really love it. It is very easy to make and very warm and soft to wear. There are a lot of options left to mix colours of both yarns, so maybe I’ll make more of these.

 

Groetjes, Dorien

Love the lights Dorien, and that art exhibition sounds amazing. Love the photo of your husband 'underwater' :-).
Your cardigan looks gorgeous, and the colours fabulous!
