Did Mrs. Eiffel Knit?



Well, she must have had plenty of inspiration - look at these photos:


Filled with intricate cablework (litterally!) and interesting joints, struts, pillars and angles. I saw cables everywhere.
Paris was lovely - all we had heard and more. A nighttime sailing trip on the Seine, after a day in the Eiffel Tower, litterally had me in tears as we approached the Notre Dame. We always do the corny, touristy stuff when we arrive in a new city - we believe in making up our own minds about things, and was blown away in Paris.
Here is a picture of me approaching the Louvre (the egyptian collection: more knitting inspiration) and look at the weather.....

We will be going back, no doubt. And we found the french friendly and open, even though our french is really poor - a few laughs were shared.
So, Sacre Coeur, Montmartre, Montparnasse, La Cité, Louvre, Notre Dame, Place du Tertre, Place Concorde......we will be back.
I guess it was the happiest time I ever spent without knitting?
PS On this last photo I was carrying in my left hand a small project, the Musketeers Socks (Ravelry - Bybeckmann).

Yderst delikate billeder af tårnet - jeg forestiller mig at det kan du snildt kreere noget susende lækkert strik ud fra!? :-)

Mange hilsner fra Vivian (der er hamrende misundelig, det er nu TYVE år siden jeg var i Paris!)

Hvor er det bare nogle fantastiske fotos! OG hvor får man dog bare lyst til at hoppe på det første fly og gøre Jer kunsten efter (nej, jeg kommer aldrig til at tage så gode billeder!!) med en holde-i-hånd-ferie....
