One would have never known that there would be so many different theories and ideas about what The Wizard of Oz represents.
All of the interpretations have led to many different conclusions about the story.
Who would have ever thought that a story that seems obvious–written specifically for children–would have had so many hidden messages in it?
Whammo!! Here I am , December! It’s true what they say about time going faster the older you get. I’m trying to keep up with all of you through your blogs and just doing that is getting harder and harder to manage. So, let’s see…what’s going on? Exactly a month ago, I fancied my way to Emerald City…“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore,” “Lions, and tigers, and bears! Oh, my…” ♥.¸¸.•°´°▪♥ღ
After surmounting many obstacles (ripped back 24 rows of 4th repeat as I accidentally skipped Row 1 of the repeat)…encountering my “Scarecrow,” “Tin Woodman” and “Cowardly Lion” who were respectively searching for a “brain,” a “heart” and “courage”–I’ve finally reached the “Emerald city,” at last!
My quest for “illumination” is complete…after i-cord bind-off 400+ live stitches. “There is no place like home.”
It’s a good feeling.
Emerald Darkness of Dream-in-Color Starry is very challenging to photograph. In person, the shawl is absolutely stunning and an utter joy to knit from top down.
The embossed leaves on the “private side” is exquisite.
I love this yarn, the pattern, and the finished project.
Both the yarn and shawl pattern are available at Twisted online or in person. It took one and an half skeins for this wonderful shawl knit with awesome yarn. If you are in the area, be sure to “test drive” the glitzy Leafy Greens shawl. Another splendid holiday gift wonder for that special someone. ♥¸.°´° ♥.¸¸.•°´°▪♥ღ
Pantone announces Emerald as the color for 2013. “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”
Do you like this choice? Does the Pantone color-of-the-year pick influence your purchases?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
