Covid is running rampant throughout our world. With all the sheltering and quarantining going on, it gives one more time to be contemplative, think about the world and big life questions. Well, I have done some of that, but mostly I’ve been day dreaming – a lot! I day dream about the fiber festivals that could have been held. I day dream about being able to meet up with my knitting buddies in person. I day dream about color combinations to try out when dyeing my yarn. I dream about fantastical creatures and wondrous places. I day dream about creating beautiful things.
Day Dreaming is one of Aretha’s signature songs. Although she sings about spending time with her lover and going to wonderful places, for me, I hear this song and fantasize about creating things of beauty and color, things that warm the heart, letting my imagination soar. What better way to let your imagination soar than on a fantastical creature, such as a dragon???!!!!
The kit this month is for the pattern I Am Dragon 3 by Alexandra Davidoff. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/i-am-dragon-iii
I am Dragon 3 is an extremely unique and beautiful shawl. It is a beaded shawl with a very unique and distinctive look. The designer has included videos for blocking and beading this pattern correctly. You can, however, choose not to bead it. The kit will contain the following:
- The pattern
- 3 hanks of a new fingering weight base, that is 70% SW Merino, 30% Silk, 437 yards, 100 grams, single ply with a high twist so that it will not pill
- 35 grams of size 6.0 seed beads to match your base
- 2 large wooden beads
- 26 stitch markers
You will be able to choose a general gradient color scheme from these three choice major color choices: Purple, red, green, or blue or you can have me surprise you!
