Tallin, Estonia, 12July2010, Part 1

We visited the medieval, walled city of Tallin. For some reason, I love the contrast of the “old” Pontiac parked on the cobblestone street.

I loved the doors along this road. Lots of design ideas.

Cobblestone repairs. Probably no stone masons around to cut the square stones.

Estonian lace is characterized by the presence of nupps. Beautiful work, rectangular shawls with a very different method of construction. Usually in white or cream. I wasn’t able to find any, but some of the other knitters located some, and they were beautiful!
