I had to step out on my stash. This beauty showed up in an email and there were so many reasons to buy it. Exclusive colourway, 100% spun silk, laceweight…
And the planned project is “Phoenix Rising” Shawl by Sivia Harding:
The beads are silver-lined crystal A/B and pick up the almost imperceptible pinks and aquas that are part of this gorgeous colourway. All from Earthfaire and with thanks to the wonderful Ellen, who always knows the exact bead to go with her yarns.
My life has been a little off-kilter the last two years but I am finding signs of hope and healing here and there. “Phoenix Rising” just seems appropriate to work those good thoughts into as I knit.
