SSS revelation

I have been thinking quite a bit about how to reveal the theme, as I over the course of the kal have realized how different we all read the pattern. This is actually one of the great things about lace knitting, you can see as much or as little as you wish and your imagination lets you.
Anyway, my main thought about the design was to bring out circles and curves (which I pretty soon realized isn’t easy in lace knitting).
Circles to represent how almost everything in life is repeating itself again and again, the changing of the seasons, being born –growing up-getting old-dying and a new human born again, sunrise-daytime-sun set and night. It all moves in circles and we are all just part of a bigger event “Life” , let it be human or nature.
Curves to represent the curves of a woman –the main image of the stole being a rather modernistic shape of a pregnant woman. She is standing on the bigger circle that represents the Earth, with the tree of life in the center to remind us that we are all part of the world and we all live important lifes. We may look differently, but we are all the same –man or woman.

The name of the stole is
“Mother Earth”.
You can think of it as a tribute to life and growth, but it is also a reminder to us all that we are responsible to the earth we live on, to the people living on it and to the nature we all share. This is the reason for me wanting as many countries as possible to join the kal and for making it a charity kal aswell.
Thanks to all of you for joining and making this a wonderful knit along! Within the next couple of weeks it will be possible to buy the pattern for the Mother Earth stole & Mother Earth scarf. As mentioned before 50% of whatever raised the first two months after the release will be forwarded to Unicef.
