A Beauty Festival at Ravelry!
like to think that one of the precious things in life is the wisdom of allowing ourselves to be positively impacted by daily beautiful things. For a few minutes just forget about what is bothering us and contemplate what is available to us at the moment. After admiring a landscape, or some flowers or even children playing together, maybe we can heal ourselves from a momentarily bad humor crisis.
Maybe I’m being kind of naïf, but I’m always up for any practice that can relieve a heavy atmosphere!
After focusing on beautiful things, the problems remain on the same place. But I’ll have changed the perspective increasing the possibility of a positive insight.
Thinking about this , I realize about the therapeutic positive effect of navigating on Ravelry for me!
And there were so many beauties this week that I have to share:
– When I opened the page of “the beekeeper’s quilt by tiny owl knits”: HÁ! It was love at first sight! This project has a singular and creative tenderness that catches me and no matter how much time I will take to make those lovely hexagons, it will be my favorite thing to do for a long time. For now I only want to fill my basket with those cuties…nothing more! Stephanie Dosen, the designer, has no idea that she gave me the most powerful negativity antidote with this project
– Another “beauty bomb” was the Wool People collection from Brooklyn Tweed with 14 patterns by designers from 5 countries. The whole project is already magical by assembling so many individual talents in a gorgeous collection! Lucky for us, this is the first Semi-annual Designs Series Curated by Brooklyn Tweed. Sounds like there will be more beauties on the way!
My first knitting choice is Levenwick by Gudrun Johnston.
– Imogen Tee by Carrie Bostick Hoge, like everything that she does has a singular charm. This project is so delicate and feminine that I suspect that every woman can feel gorgeous dressing the Imogen Tee!
– For quite some time I did the “happy dance” when a friend (that I love) told me that she can crochet the Penny Arcade Jacket by Vickie Howell for me! Like some Brazilian friends say about not knowing how to crochet: I have two left arms (LOL)! For sure I’ll do my best and learn, but the possibility to wear this gorgeous piece made by magical hands before I even start learning, already made me a happier person!
– A beauty that shines! The Harmonia’s Ring Sweater by Sivia Harding is one of those projects that make me catch my breath! The genius construction beautified by beads moves me to finish my projects in order to start this pullover!
– Please, acknowledge the flower on the back of Lisianthus by Rosemary (Romi) Hill! This single flower is so beautiful as well the shawl dimensions – I’m in a big shawl phase! Actually, there’s nothing new when we talk about the singular beauty of Romi’s projects, right?
Did you open a smile while checking the pics from the projects mentioned on this post? I really hope so!
Peace Knit and Love, always… Paula
