If you haven’t yet seen Frozen, I highly recommend it. Even if you haven’t got kids. It’s got a lot of thought-provoking things to say: many of which seemed particularly relevant to me, like the idea that trying to control everything you feel is likely to lead to an unexpected eruption of power that hurts the people you are trying to protect, for instance. Like the idea that love, not fear, not control, is the answer to the pain and confusion.
I loved it. It’s also visually just stunning.
And when I saw that icy crystal gown, I knew there was a shawl design in there.
Some time with a spreadsheet and a bunch of beads and yarn resulted in this:
It has a lot of beads (close to 300), but it didn’t take all that long to knit, really.
The pattern’s up on Ravelry, if you need one of your own. The first fifty people to use the code LetItGo can have it for free. :D
