Pattern source: 8-square socks from Käspaikka Yarn: Sock yarn leftovers, held doubled Needles: 3,5 mm I've been feeling pretty down lately. To keep me from worrying about things that I actually have no control over, I've knit some tiny garter stitch squares. These may not be the prettiest socks in the world, but knitting them made me feel happier. :-)
The Hundertwasser tower, designed by Austrian Friedensreich Hundertwasser, was built in Abensberg, south Germany, 10 years after his death. The tower is 35 meters high and 6 meters is diameter, twice smaller than the original project of the architect. A wonderful view of the town opens from the upper site of the tower, which has no straight lines.
Austrian Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) , became one of the best-known contemporary Austrian artists, although controversial,by the end of the 20th century. He was a painter, print maker, & architect (uncredentialed) who wrote manifestos, designed posters and stamps, and traveled the globe bringing construction projects to realization and collecting awards. He was also an outspoken proponent of anti-nuclear causes.
