Well, this post is mostly about the stashed yarn and the fact that it turned out to be gold. I just had to use it the right way and see things differently. Learning about using color in knitting has helped me using my stash to create just what I love: A lot of colors playing together in my garments and things I knit.
|This is my scarf knitted entirely from stash.|
How many shawls or scarves does a person need? A million? Thousands? Hundreds? I think it must be the last... LOL.
I tend to think that we way too often in life judge people and things before even bother to find out what they are.
And way too often the verdict is simply to throw it all away. Or tell people to get lost.
Well a lot of people were told that they were a lost cause. But if anybody had bothered to look closer they may have seen the hidden treasure inside.
And I often think about that when I dive into a pile of stashed yarn or beads. I can make the yarn shine if I take the right choices.
Just like we can make a person shine - if we look closer.
Have a lovely weekend - I hope you will be seen as you are.
