Suzy’s Latest Shawl Is Sold

Suzy’s latest shawl

Last week I wrote about the shawl that Suzy was making. The last one of the season.  Today she sent me a picture of it.  This is the shawl that has wool in it from my sheep Socks and Issachar.

It also has Churro wool in it too which comes from Navajo-Churro Sheep.  It is the tannish color spun in with the lighter colors on the shawl.

When I first looked at the picture of Suzy’s shawl I kept thinking it felt like something, but I couldn’t quite place it. I saw the woods in it,  but also the sky.  Then it came to me, the shawl feels like feathers.

Something in the way the colors blend and fade in and out, balanced by the darker areas. It reminds me of the hawk wings I found a few days ago.  I think that’s why when I first connected it to the woods, to trees, it wasn’t quite right.

This shawl is more of the air than the earth.

And it is sold.  Even before I got to see it finished, to think about it, to name it, Suzy’s shawl was sold.
