Day 8 – Vignola

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. – Mahatma Gandhi

Vignola: Completed about six weeks ago, I used a gorgeous hand-dyed DK Merino gradient from Fidalgo Artisan Yarns, with money from my first paid commission in years. Of course I turned around and invested my knitting earning in high-quality yarn. Because that’s how knitters roll…

The colors to me are like caramel beach sand stretching to deep blue ocean.

A truly fun pattern to work with enough repetition to be meditative and enough variation to prevent boredom. Originally intended to be the one item I made in 2018 I would make for myself, it found a perfect home with my cousin after undergoing a difficult time.

I love this about creation…the creations seem to know where they want to go. Even though I’ve only traveled out of my region once in past decade, my gifted knits have landed in Alaska, Boston, Poland, Australia, Malawi. Religious-minded describe it as ministry. I think of it as a creative force working through my hands and heart going where it wants to go.
