Reminders of Home

I had to smile when I saw the new Hana sweater from Redgrave. It made me think of my mother and the wonderful Scandinavian knit sweaters she would knit for me each year. I had one very similar to this one with the Yule pattern. Mine was knit with silvery gray, white and a dusty rose yarn with several rows of geometric patterns from the neckline and down the yoke with a solid silvery gray from the yoke to the bottom. My sweater was full length though I kind of replicated that with the tank top underneath. I loved my sweaters and always admired my mother’s ability to knit such delicate and intricate patterns. Of course, since it took so long to make them, I was never surprised at Christmas.

Thinking of my mom’s sweater I decided to go for these wine-colored Baiastice trousers. They’re a bolder color than the dusty rose from my sweater, but then I always like to wear that sweater with either dark gray wool pants or a deep wine skirt. While it’s not an exact replica, it does remind me of that sweater and my mother, whose artistry with the humble arts of knitting, quilting and sewing was so profound.

I added the snowflake earrings, necklace and bracelet from EarthStones. The hair is from Dura, a man’s hairstyle that I love. The skin is Laina, a new release from Adam n Eve. I added the eyebrow tattoo that comes with the skin line.
