Happy Year of the Pig
On Saturday I attended the New Moon Meditation which incorporated the Chinese New Year education as well. I found out that from now to the Full Moon on March the 3rd we are supposed to strive towards our goals of prosperity. Lots of prosperity. Prosperity to share with everyone.
In my faith this time is also a time of strong self growth. As we shed away the the last residues of the crone and prepare for expansion of the new queen as budding begins.
Moebius Design Shawl
This weekend was full for me. On Saturday I took a class on the Moebius design knitting style. Moebius is a term used to describe a line that turns on itself and is continuous. Like how an apple peel falls if you trim it off the apple with a knife in a swirl, or use a peeling tool.
Moebius knitting projects knit two edges (opposing) at the same time. So I am knitting the shawl from the middle outwards. You can see that now I am knitting with a thick blue/green fibre and it is coming out on the garment on the two edges.
There is one twist in the pattern which will keep a nice feature in the front of the garment.
I am using 9 colours cut into 25 metre pieces. Two 25 metre pieces for each colour.
This is done on a 1metre round needle and this fills the needle.
The cast on is very different, and is complicated at first for even a seasoned knitter.
Once the cast on is perfected, this style quickly becomes a favourite!
My plants are telling me spring is coming. Buds and blooms and long shoots are climbing to take in more light
