“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either.” ~ Elizabeth Zimmermann
My dream someday is to knit a sweater or dress or skirt. I have managed scarves (many of them), a few hats, a few shawls, mittens, even socks, but sweaters are daunting. I once knew a beautiful Russian woman who could knit dresses for her gorgeous self without a pattern.
This dress from Ariadne Garrigus reminded me of Svetlana’s skill. With a cable running down the length of the dress and a thick chunky brown yarn, the dress is lovely for cold winter days. The belt would appear to be white in my photos but it’s actually tan—the materials setting in the SL Viewer picks up the sheen Arianda gave it.
The new hat and hair set from Mirja Mills is a perfect accompaniment to the dress. Also knit in a chunky yarn, the scarf comes with a color change HUD as does the hat on the hair. I am loving the options these give to any look. My skin is Ydreece Forster’s newest. She is changing her brand name from Mirror’s Enigma to Morphine so if you hear about Morphine skins, that’s the old Mirror’s Enigma. Ydreece gives a fresh look to her skins. Without a lot of makeup, the skins are a perfect palette for cosmetic layers, though I opted for the simple bare look.
“A knitter only appears to be knitting yarn. Also being knitted are winks, mischief, sighs, fragrant possibilities, wild dreams.” ~Dr. SunWolf
