Eggplant & Oysters?

Eggplants and Oysters...

© Theresa Lasichak 2016
Okay, truly, you could call this whatever you want. Personally, I had some wonderful
Habu Silk Mohair Tam in my stash.

I don’t think they manufacture this in sport weight any more(sad and so sorry).
I purchased it at Habu in New York City a few years ago. The most luscious eggplant
and oyster colors..I’ve been deciding what to do with the skeins I had for some
time...better to age while in a project than sitting in a bag,right?

Recently I needed a quick knit fix, and viola..
I came up with this,soft, warm,tweedy tam that is perfect for my cold morning runs.
If you like it as much as I do, then....
The pattern is free, as a Ravelry download here for personal use only. I still retain the rights, so if you make one,
please link to me either on Ravelry

I would LOVE to see yours.

seriously twisted ~

“Don’t allow yourself to become disheartened
when the thread doesn’t suit or seems unsightly to you.
Wait and watch. Be patient and devoted.
As the threads twist and turn, you will begin to understand,
and you will see the pattern finally materialize in all its splendor.”
― Colleen Houck

I had to tell myself to be patient...

while the threads twisted and turned...
it seemed like forever....

eventually I understood....
the pattern began to materialize...

now...I must say...I am loving this....

It is seriously twisted.

small victory....

And so it goes......
the dimensions, partially, uneven.
A mingle of the three....

life, twists and turns

made up of small victories

but a small victory

is better than none at all.

A turtleneck sleeved shrug....
Ribbed knit, yes I can take a ribbing....
Soft haloed yarn from my stash...
waiting to be worn....
as a scarf....
or not.

~fait accompli ~

“Watching a complex stitch pattern grow as I knit
silences the voice in my head that tells me to sweep the floor.
I imagine dust bunnies are knitting themselves together under my chair.”

― Debbie Macomb, Summer on Blossom Street

And I have been silent...
have I not?

But my mind is swimming in voices.

Voices that say things must be completed.

Things must be done.
So I heed them....

the voices....

~fait accompli~
P.S. .....the dust bunnies have been cleaned...
and the specs of this project are posted to Ravelry... go take a peek.

promise to be back soon~
