Inner Wild Gathering Bodice, hand knitted in a lovely mustard, butterscotch color pure wool.
The silence is thick against my ears. Even my clumpy boots make no sound tramping the forest path; old rusty-colored pine and spruce needles soften the thud of my footfalls, a carpet on the woodland floor.
The Inner Wild Gathering Bodice is made from Rowan pure wool in a honeycomb, mustard, butterscotch – or is it the color of maple syrup in sunlight?
Gathering firewood, examining fungi, looking inside a fox’s set, woodlanders find soul shelter under the tree canopy, we wander over the gnarly, ancient tree roots that run like woody veins over the skin of the earth. We breathe deeply the scent of damp wood and mulch and smile.
I’ve knitted the front bodice panel of the Gathering Bodice in a traditional cable stitch, The sides and back are knitted in one side-ways garter stitch piece to allow for flattering stretch and contouring around the body.
