Lightly Held, on the Longest Night

When the meditation group meets here we will offer incense before this statue. Lightly held – note the ease of the hands.

The days will have progressively more light now.

There is sufficient winter ahead to wear this once its finished. Its a gorgeous yarn, this lett-lopi. The pattern is Riddari, from Lopi 28. The model wearing the sweater is male, but this is a design for anyone. The yarn is a bit lighter than the plain lopi, and it knits up wonderfully, with lots of air, in a reasonably loose single. The colours are utterly lovely, especially that lichen green of the main body. With diligence this will be done by around that day on the 25th. Maybe blocked and worn shortly after. (Mind you, it is not good to tempt the knitting gods with hubris.Think humility oh knitter.)

    I simply love the wool you are knitting up at the moment. I made one of those traditional ‘jumpers’ out of the thick lopi wool. Charcoal black body and arms with white black and charcoal yoke and cuffs. Lovely. Why did I ever pass it on?!

    Yes and the statue is lovely. The Reverend was particularly pleased with finding it.

      Hi Rev. Mugo; Thank you so much. I love the traditional style of jumper, and yes, the yarn just shimmers. I am humbled that the statue gets to live in my little house. Its very still. In gassho M
