A big thank you to my wonderful test knitters

I am one of those who believe that love is everything. A hopeless romantic if you will :) The name of the pattern comes from a beautiful love poem by the Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Love’s Philosophy

The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In another’s being mingle—
Why not I with thine?

See, the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister flower could be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;—
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

Percy Bysshe Shelley
