Gardens and Beaches


Garden of Evening Mists touched me from the first sentence.  The story of Yun Ling Teoh is rich with memory, illusion, and impermanence, as is the Japanese garden she wishes to restore. She is looking to her past as a prisoner in a Japanese interment camp and facing a future of loss of all cognitive function. The quiet calm of the writing is deceptive and intriguing.

Knitting Beach Glass has felt an illusion, as it has grown smaller, not larger, as do most shawl in my experience. The trick was to start out with 388 stitches and knit on and on through feather and fan. The delight was to suddenly be nearly finished with the shawl.

Are you almost done? Hooray!!

That is stunning. I might have to check that book out, dear one.

That book is "next up" on my reading queue! Can't wait to dig in. And . . . look at you GO on that Beach Glass! It's beautiful!


Sounds like an interesting book. I think I would need to quiet my mind more to read it.

That Beach Glass is so lovely. I do dislike the starting out with so many stitches but then love that construction when the rows get so short. xo

What a pretty shawl.

I love how you paint images with your words. You make me want to read the book and knit the shawl.

Beach Glass was one of my favorite shawls to knit..I think I may just have to make another
