my imperfect winter storm

This is how it started.
Without much warning,
the lines began to merge...
and the gray had gathered into
an energy of its own.

It began to grow very quickly...
and take on shape...
IMG_2382
the rhythm was set...
and I continued..
round and round,
impressed by this imperfect winter storm.

I was caught up in the moment
knowing that a certain type of perfection
can only be realized through an accumulation of imperfection.
And like any perfect storm...
it ended...seemingly suddenly...
and what was left was a comfort...

a comfort that will encircle me..
and keep me warm..

through the gathering storms yet to be.

It's gorgeous! Did you use Quince & Co yarn? Perfect fit, too!

Beautiful sweater. I really like the shape and the fit. I can't seem to stop looking at the pattern on the front. it reminds me of something but I'm not quite sure what that is. Perfect colour too.

heather said…
stormy weather is made for knitters, i think. the bottom of your sweater is my favorite. the little ripple down there, or big wave. something watery. love.

Jean said…
Wow! What a lovely pattern. So very pretty and I love the color.

Theresa, it's spectacular! The color, the fit, the beautiful lace down the center and that wave at the bottom is perfect! Did you create this pattern? If so I do hope you will make it available at some point for the rest of us. Your an incredibly talented and inspiring woman!

No imperfections here. No indeed. A perfect source of comfort both in the making and the wearing for any storms ~ but I'm hoping you only have sunny days :)

Have been away celebrating Steve's 65th B-day ~
PS meant to tell you the design reminds me of sea shells :)

Somehow I missed this one Theresa...so what a lovely treat to find it here unopened. How beautifully you spin the yarn...both in words and in images...and in wool! I dearly hope there will be few storms gathering ahead of you...and those that are will be simply wild and wonderful...and nothing to fear xx
