Silk Road

On clear dark nights, I often sit,
and spend a quiet hours wake,
just marveling at the sky above,
so infinite so deep and dark.
the countless stars revolve in silence
and here I lay, a tiny thing,
all insignificant and small
under the milky way so tall.

If ever you’ve beheld the stars
beyond mountains or in deserts far,
you know what wonder I describe,
it silences the busy mind.

This asymmetrical crescent shaped shawl uses short rows to create the illusion of sweeping stars and star showers above, and gradient yarn colors to evoke the nightsky with just a hint of light at dawn, and the milky way still visible overhead.

Meine lieben Strickerinnen, die Anleitungen in diesem Shawl club sind zwar nur auf englisch erhältlich, ich kann aber gerne auch auf Deutsch in den Foren helfen, wenn man’s braucht.
Geheim tip: lieber den Shawl club durch die Webseite bestellen (dauert zwar zwischen ein paar Stunden bis zu ein paar Tagen, je nach Internet bei mir) aber man kann da den Club zum Normalpreis und ohne Mehrwert verteuerung, beziehen.
