"The ebb and flow of will is like the movements of the tides... if we cease our vain struggles and lamentations long enough to look away from the personal self... we realize life is going well with us after all." Charles B. Newcomb So then, I put aside my lamentations regarding the weather, the struggles of working with 3 fine strands of yarn, and finished the sleeves. My Japanese tea leaves is complete. But there is that ebb and flow of will, and as you can see, I have chosen a completely different buttons. These reminded me of yin and yang, or yin yang as it is know, how polar or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other in turn. you can vaguely see it within these images, but I have used contrasting gradients of tsumugi they are interconnected,yet independent, and these gradients of yarn give rise to each other, and complement and enhance the whole. So I have come to realize that life is going well after all. There are new projects to be started... There is hope for Spring... And I need to start a Friday Night Knitting Club... anyone interested?
