New Leaves a.k.a. New Lease on Life
I started this vibrant green shawl a couple of days before I saw the dermatologist and life started spinning. It is such a beautiful shade imbued with a force of life that is hard to deny.
While suffering what I refer to as my melanoma mania, I seriously un-knit as much as I knit on some days. My knitting friends suggested I try a simple garter stitch pattern... and they were absolutely right that the simpler pattern would have been much more soothing.
This is really NOT a hard knit, but my focus was seriously compromised. The color and the leaves just kept drawing me back... it was like I needed to be able to finish it to have that life force myself... and I did... and I do. I am most grateful and I feel like I have a new lease on life...
The pattern is Spring Leaves by Katrin Vorbek all info: here on my Ravelry page.
We celebrated my Beloved's birthday this week.... and never has it been sweeter to celebrate another year in his life... another year together.
Thanking you again for all the wonderful prayers, encouragements and concerns.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and Andrea, thank you. ;)
I will be adding this to Color Your World with some amazing young women. =)
