Pain, it comes in waves…~ September 5, 2012

…not the physical kind, the kind that lies beneath the surface, while watching a loved one suffer unspeakable misery and despair. It leaves you weak and feeling vulnerable, drained, alone.
I immerse myself in my knitting, gatherings my thoughts and my strength while planning my next project, my next day.
I am anxious to start my next shawl. I am not a shawls sort of person, so why do I keep finding myself liking and wanting to make these lovely wraps and stoles? Maybe because they offer comfort with their subtle warm embrace, soft as a butterfly’s wings.
This next project will be one I will wrap myself in, Thinking of Waves by Conny Peng, yellowcosmos designs

I will call mine “Pueblo Bonito” in honor of a very special place.
The colours I chose represent the canyons of the Four Corners region, sand and stone as timeless as the sea, also created from water; a hint of the red rocks and turquoise that has been the life blood of the First People for hundreds of years.

I’ve come this far on my other shawl, Travelling Woman by Liz Abinante. It reveals a journey of the Spirit of Woman, in transition, with a purpose. I am enjoying this, my second one in the patten. It will go to my daughter who has recently flown the nest and on her way to her bright new future, a married woman. I will celebrate her flight, my Travelling Daughter~

The colors of Travelling Woman once again reflect a timeless land of red rocks and earth. I am drawn to this place, and will one day return Home…
