Meiosis Shawl- Part 1 of 3

Laying out an outline with green yarn (not my hand-spun).

 


Filling in with a single layer of green roving...

 


...and more...

 


and more!

 


Adding white areas...

 


...to represent cellular division!

 


Now I'm sure that many of you are already shaking your heads and wondering...

..."just what exactly has gotten into her with this latest crazy project?!?!" :)

Ever since I made my Summer Shawl...

...I've been wanting to try another one!

I also ADORE science and its attendant imagery...

...and thought it would be lovely to do a series on 'creating life'...

...from the cellular level!! :)

So I laid out a single layer of green roving...

...and wrapped the edges around the piece of green yarn that made the shawl outline.

I then added two 'piles' of white roving in concentric circles...

...to suggest a dividing cell.

Next time: a cheering section of gametes!

It will be quite a talking point when you wear it, too, won't it!

ooooh, this is going to be fun! I love the shape...shawls can't all be rectangles and triangles.

I don't think I've ever seen "cheering" and "gametes" in the same sentence. :)
