shetland

A shawl was knitted for a present...
The yarn waited for its fate in my stash for many years now, I received it in exchange for knitting. Then a few years ago, in one of my not so good periods (I didn't know back then that things could get worst. A lot worst...) I started to knit it as a meditation or prayer shawl...
I thought I will concentrate on a certain thing I wanted to achieve while knitting on this shawl... If I achieve that something with a help of somebody... then I will give it to that person.
This help could have been anything, a word said in the "right" place, a helping hand, a reference, whatever, but it did not came (at that time), and thingsturned for the worse...and then I just put away... later (years later) when someone really helped me, I made/gave her something else...
However, when a few months ago I did get an opportunity from someone I knew, that the time has come for this yarn... I frogged what was started from it, I didn't want knit into that sadness and struggle and negativity...I started anew, and fresh.
The pattern (Shetland Triangle) is an old favorite. The gift giving opportunity came suddenly, so we had no time to have a proper photoshot, I can only documen with the wek-pictures of blocking...

It's a beautiful shawl, and you have a very lucky friend to be its recipient.

Joy and happiness in life is not money, not love, but in truth. Even if you want is an animal type of happiness, life is not any of you anyway, while drinking, while happy, it will always give you unprepared to fight.
