Look at the resemblance, I just noticed today, while browsing my photos!

For colder days

A friend got me into knitting a shawl. And another friend taught us how to do this pattern. I don't think of myself as a knitter, but this shawl was very appealing so they won me over. And it's also getting me out off my own box, trying new things even if it's just a shawl.

Mother Earth's Colours

I got some walnuts from a friend, so I made a nice walnut soup for my sock yarn. The funny thing was that it smelled like paint. No mordant needed, too. Just walnuts and water. I love it because it all comes from Mother Earth.

The yarn got a nice warm brown colour. I dip dyed it. Later I put a can in the soup and that gave a grey brown colour.  It's just magic.

The box

Sometimes it feels as if I'm in a box. It's a safe place, but it blocks the view.

But I can look over the box carefully, and gradually try to get out of it. I can always return to it, can't I?
