"excerpt from Moon River"
I have so been trying to start and finish projects, without wandering....so therefore, this lovely yarn has been sitting next to my computer desk looking at me every day, patiently waiting for me to finsh Hannah's little pink shawl. The pictures don't quite capture how lovely this KSH is. This colorway is called Moonlight, which is basically Smoke with tiny silver metallic threads. Now mind you, I am NOT a metallic girl kind of person.....usually ranks right up there with Stilettos in my humble opinion.......but in this yarn, it is so soft and subtle. I just can't say enough, how much I just love KSH. This is to be my shawl to wear dancing NY's eve........if I don't kill myself trying to get in shape.... ;-)
Did you know?
September is the Harvest Moon month. In China they celebrate the Harvest moon as the Moon Festival with little moon cakes. Deng Ming-Dao says of the Harvest Moon " The queen of the night is at her most perfect roundness, closer to us than at any other time of the year. She glows silver in an indigo sky. The Moon Festival is a woman's festival......If you are a man, then it is a night to step aside for your wives, mothers and sisters. But for all, we can be thankful for the riches of autumn and begin our preparations for the coming frost.
"How cool is that?"
And..........that frost shall descend upon us in the Mountains tonight, just in time for the Harvest Moon this week....bbrrrrrrrr......
