To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.

Inspired by the sea

Sometimes when I look outside and see everything covered in a thick blanket of snow, I begin to dream of a sandy beach and the sea. I take these little dreams with me into the dye studio. When I am done I can touch the beautiful coral & the sandy beach speckled with pebbles & gaze into the luminous sea.

it is inspiring, but living at it all my life, i dream of snow. i wonder what it would be like and what it would inspire in me.
i love your yarn too. i still haven't cast on with the shell colored pink skein i got from sweet basil fibre works. its pretty sitting on my shelf.

Lori ann,
How truly different our worlds are, I do wish one day to experience a gentler winter somewhere else.
I cannot wait to see what that skein becomes.
