Day 14 – Traigh

I saw also that there was an ocean of darkness and death, but an infinite ocean of light and love, which flowed over the ocean of darkness. ~ George Fox (1624-1691)

Reading from Kate Davies’ Traigh pattern, “the undulating edge of this simple-to-knit summer hap suggests waves across a beach or shoreline – a Gaelic word for which is Traigh.”

I’m making my hap a winter one. I also played yarn chicken and lost. Love the Galileo bamboo/Merino, but should you give it a try, you’ll likely need 4 balls, not 3.

Today’s video captured dusk near 4 pm and a roiling sea. The books are pre-birthday happiness for me. I love the spirit of Kate Davies designs and her husband’s expansive photography.

Reflecting on sacredness of water across cultures while living on an island as I do, I often seek out music to listen to based on theme of what I’m knitting. Yemaya, Goddess of the living oceans, mother of all life in the Afro-Cuban and Yoruba culture has many tributes, this among them. Love listening to this pianist and how it shines as a percussion instrument with him.
