Forever More Shawl - a knitting pattern
Just a stone left unturned
My need is deep
Wide endless oceans (…)
Forever more” - Moloko
Music has always been there with me in many important moments of my life. Sometimes it was connected with a person. A friend, a lover or a relative. Sometimes it was connected with a place. It was there, in the background, a beautiful witness to all those precious moments that you want to keep within yourself for a long time. And then when you hear the first notes of a familiar melody all comes rushing back to you…
Such is this shawl - a vast ocean of knits with distinct themes floating by that witness the magic of your life, your emotions, your joys. And when you think that one day all may fade away from your memory, just wrap yourself snugly in the shawl, feel the gorgeous drape and texture, close your eyes and get carried away…
To keep every memory forever…
