A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

A Good Thing to Remember

Both my teens came together to embrace the magnificent day.

I have passed this street about a hundred times.

But today, I thought of a quote from Doctor Who after a lovely meditative stroll

The way I see it
every life is a pile of good things and bad things.
The good things don’t always soften the bad things
but vice versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things
or make them unimportant

Yogis believe that the sun nourishes us as we are one with the bright light and all the nature surrounding us. We help to create our own bright light from within by connecting our beautiful breath with our bodies helping to create larger connection with the space and people around us.

What I took from this afternoon was to remember to keep exploring…to breathe and drink in the beauty of my surroundings, and to revel in just loving the moment in which I am in.

Be grounded. Be empowered. Be radiant. Be present.

As I promised a fella-Raveler yesterday, here are some pictures to help her visualize how the swirl knit up. First one is a single-plane overview

Next is upper center part of the overview, a close-up of the initial bind-off and its subsequent increases on both sides of flat knitting

Following shows left-side progression of flat knitting

Here right-side progression, opposite side to one shown above

Shown below is a result of increases on each side of back bodice.

When folding back the top section of the cast-on-edge circle, temporarily connecting to back bodice, this is what the swirl would be like without the rest of bodice and sleeves.

Hope you are able to follow these diagrams.

Now, a partial finished, unblocked, Sheer Beauty swirl on the 13-year-old model–5’2″–who wears an adult-medium for comfort and small for fit

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

    • Thanks, Sandy. It’s looking awfully good! All blocked and shaped to specs. Now, it just needs time to rest to final measurement as recommended by Sandra, the designer. I’ll hope to ship it to you on Monday.

  2. […] joke. I laid my swirl on the ground in the cul-de-sac, in front of my driveway, ready for a photo […]

  3. […] medium.  What does that mean, really? Here shown in the post is one of a few ways I like to swear my swirl, based on Sandra’s guide Size 2 […]
