Eunomia is the Greek Goddess of order and a sister to the Goddess of peace, Eirene. As such, this cowl has similar dimensions and the same beloved applied i-cord edging as the Project Peace 2016 cowl. Yet each sister is unique in her own right and this stitch pattern captures order and times when order seems a bit out of reach. It’s a rhythmic knit with a relatively easy to memorize stitch pattern.
It’s perfect for summer knitting whether you are inside keeping cool, sitting beside the pool or beach, enjoying a picnic at a park, watching a soccer game, or went hiking into a remote spot for a little solitude. If by chance you are south of the equator this will be a comforting knit and the timing is perfect to keep you warm through the cooler months. As you knit this cowl, may you be inspired to reflect on the meaning of order in your life.
From June 23-July 1 of 2017, Eunomia will be accompanied with a Gratitude Knit-along. This is a surprise knit-along as you won’t see a photo until the end but it’s different than a mystery knit-along as there is only one clue that you receive upon purchase.
I'll post on the blog daily with a focus on cultivating more gratitude in our lives. And maybe, just maybe, focusing on gratitude will create order. If you want to interact with other knitters during the Gratitude-along feel free to leave comments on the blog and/or join The Healthy Knitter group on Ravelry and follow the thread "Eunomia."
If you are interested in the Gratitude-along there will be varying levels of ways to participate. Each day we'll be writing down words, thoughts, etc that start with a letter in the word "gratitude." If you want to simply write down words on a piece of paper, sticky notes, or the notes app on your phone those would be easy ways to incorporate the Gratitude-along into your day. You could grab a little journal like this so that you've created a gratitude booklet come the first of July. Finally, you could print the files I'll be posting each day and create yourself a gratitude banner. I'm sure that many of you will have extremely creative approaches and I encourage you to follow your heart with this.
Solstice is really all about new beginnings, right? So, let's start anew and enjoy the meaning of Solstice, expressing our gratitude and finding order in our lives. Here's to Eunomia!
