Nebulas and galaxies, the milky way and Saturn’s rings.
Maybe it was because I was just looking at the photos of Space in National Geographic that the first thing I thought of when I saw Suzy’s latest shawl was the night sky.
If you look at the broad dark areas, they are speckled with color and texture (stars and planets). Pinks and purples, deep reds, specks of turquoise and shades of white (like a nebula).
Softer on one side of the shawl and richer on the other. There are so many subtleties in this shawl including that lavender hued gray.
And the dark stripe along the bottom is my sheep Issachar’s wool. Suzy loves spinning and knitting it, she tells me it’s too good a wool to use for dryer balls. (Which is how I’ve been using it).
As most of you know by now Suzy’s hand spins and hand knits her shawls. Each shawl is a unique creation of wearable art.
The mohair comes from her angora goats, Alice, April, Lucy and Ruth. She sent me the video below of her goats. That’s Ruth and Alice who come right up to the camera and smile.
