In August, Away
|Work table, Labor Day 2013|

|Friday night, casting on......weekend knitting|
|In August, Away by Bristol Ivy|
I have been lulled by the knitting, and tonight, as I thought of how I wanted to share this enjoyment with you, I Googled Benjamin Britten. I discovered he was the composer of some hauntingly beautiful music from the movie Moonrise Kingdom. The lyrics in Songs from Friday Afternoons contain the title of Bristol's pattern. The sound of the children's voices, especially when they sing In August Away gives me a chill, so beautiful. I wonder at the links between the music, the movie and the muse that inspired Bristol to create this cowl. I love that there is such richness in something that I knit. It gives me a lot to think about.
