http://spiritcloth.typepad.com/ - she was talking about colors and how they lean into each other - her musings lean into my current knitting project - another Margaret Dashwood shawl from the Summer 2012 issue of Jane Austen Knits. For this current one, I am knitting with Aslantrends Santa Fe yarn in a color named Grape Jam but honestly it is so much more - the colors are grape, olive, navy, tan, and mixes of these and more as the colors merge and divide and as jude writes, "lean" into each other. I have tried to show how incredible this looks in the photos but to see them in the natural sunlight through the window, they just take your breath away. Here's a link to my first Margaret Dashwood shawl on Ravelry - I just love how you can tie this shawl around your shoulders and chest, and then do things without having to worry about the shawl coming loose. It's a fabulous pattern with easy lace.
thanks for stopping by.

"Let us dream of evanescence, and linger in the beautiful foolishness of things."
from The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo
Welcome to my home
this is the cabinet that you see as you enter my house -
on it an ever changing display of "the foolishness of things."
a vintage celadon vase, a Venetian mask, incense, books, some strands of beads,
and two hearts covered with vintage buttons and shells -
"There are no little things. Little things are the hinges of the universe."
- Fanny Fern
