Mooi

 

Every hand-knitted garment is a story and has the feeling tone of a closed book swollen with images.

In the beginning it is only our voice, our vision, our intention.     The end result is a dialogue between the soul life of the fiber and the soul life of the knitter.

The first VLT Spider Web fichu (ravelry link) was a gift for my cousin which I gave away before I could photograph the final result.  I liked it so much, i had to make one for myself.   There are two things I was unable to capture with the camera: 

 

1. The wonderful way it catches the light and casts off a rich quiet shimmer 

 

2.  The organic texture of the bamboo and the undyed portion of pure bison and cashmere fibers.  All three work together to create shaded variances similar to a weathered stone wall.  

 

This is the most brilliant yarn I’ve ever worked with in my entire life-a true sleeping beauty and Mooi (pretty) is a perfect name for it.  The price tag is hefty, but if you are thinking of making something special for someone you love, it will reward you handsomely.
