It took longer to name this stole than to knit it, because there seemed to be no words to mirror the feeling and sight of the fabric. It’s fluid, evocative of cellular life, and radiant with colors of sun and sky and water. The turquoise jewel-ponds were unplanned and a surprise to me. Let them be a surprise to you as well. Th at is, do not try to copy my placements exactly, but allow yourself to listen for the song of the jewels as they show you where they want to dive in next.
