Arrows are ancient symbols, beneficent in showing the way and ruthless in piercing. May these infinite chevrons point you towards warmth and peace, and cut through the cold and negative clouds.
Dyed with locally foraged wild madder root for the earthy rose background, black walnut husks, rhubarb leaves from my garden, and overdyed with my studio-grown Japanese indigo for soft aqua blues.

Your new knit requires very little care except to be worn and loved. The most important thing is not to put it in the washing machine! If your knit gets dirty or stretched, handwashing will restore it. To wash, fill a basin with warm water and add about a teaspoon of gentle dishwashing liquid, castile soap, or a fiber wash product such as Unicorn Wash or Eucalan. Don’t use Woolite. Put your knit piece in the basin and let it soak for 30 minutes without agitating it. Remove and refill the basin with fresh water. Put the knit back in the basin and let soak for another 10 minutes. Do 2 more rinses in fresh water. Gently squeeze dry and/or roll in a towel and dry flat.
You can store your knit in the cloth bag it came in. If wool moths are a problem in your house, consider storing in a cedar chest.
May your head and heart be warm!
