A new knitting book has been published. The author of this book is some sort of knitting/spinning goddess, an amalgam of Elizabeth Zimmerman, Priscilla Gibson Roberts, Judith Mackenzie....you get my drift. Now along with the publishing of "The Book", the goddess has also released a line of her own new, innovative, never before seen yarns.
The essence of this dream is my quest to obtain this book and some of this yarn. Once successful in acquiring these things I sit down to knit with my prayer shawl knitting friends. The color of this exclusive yarn is yellow, so not me. But I have cast on and am knitting and chatting away. Soon I notice that there is something about this yarn...it has a wrapper on the strand, kind of like the wrapper on string cheese or salami, that needs to be peeled away. So I begin to peel away the skin on the yarn. It turns out that peeling the yarn unleashes its magical properties. By peeling away the covering, I have released the power of the knitting goddess into my life. It is insidious: there are pop up ads in the knitting, the yarn unravels sections in the middle of the knitting leaving big loops. It hides my cell phone and my purse and takes over my credit cards.
I awaken while desperately trying to put the genie back into the yarn.
So...knitting dream analysts, what do you make of that?
I'm thinking I'll stick with handspun.....not yellow.
