Ink and thoughts...

" A small drop of ink falling like dew upon a thought,produces that which makes thousands,perhaps millions think" Lord Byron this is my ink...Shibui and Claudia's hand painted ink with thousands of drops transformed into this Point Mousse Cardigan rows and short rows of garter stitch knit in one piece composed while the mind had a chance to settle,a chance to think the simplest and least clad creations leave you with a sense of most beauty it was a struggle to decide on the closure but these metal,curved beauties a treasure from a friend, easily won over the amazing assortment that have been gifted to me by the most amazing persons. Winter is nearly over a new month has begun Spring is really just a dream away (don't forget to chage your clocks this weeked!)

You're kidding, right? Already?!!!! Gah!

That sweater is beautiful. The combination of yarns is perfection, and the button is just the right touch. Really lovely.

um, some of us are newly covered in snow. Spring sounds appealing right now, but it doesn't seem so close!

The sweater is beautiful.

What spring? I think am starting to get impatient waiting for it to come.

Beautiful stitches and touches. Again, I am not surprised.

The soft against the hard
The droplets against the molten

A perfect piece.
And a perfect story.

How beautiful. I don't think garter stitch has ever looked so good! And those buttons - as perfect as the cherry on a hot fudge sundae. Sigh.

I do not look forward to daylight savings time being changed. I'll miss the dark settling in around 5:30.

Your sweater is lovely. Rows and rows of garter stitch, how can one go wrong?

Love, lovely, lovely! I love how you paired a classic design with an amazing yarn to create your own unique designer piece!

Do we really change the clock this weekend????

Pam said...

The differences in tone make it look as though it's been woven, not knitted. It's beautiful. Just like spring, who is being ever so slightly shy just now.

Gigi said...

Love this cardigan and would like to make one! Is the 'gilet' link to the pattern the only one available? Not sure I could translate a French knitting pattern?!
Thanks so much,
Georganna
