Meher Baba Samadhi

A coaster size rendering of Meher Baba’s Tomb image. Designed by my husband šŸ™‚ and happily knitted by me.

Because it’s double knit,Ā it shows the right side (above), while theĀ other side of the coaster shows the left side:

The thing I like about it is that in the old days we used to enter from the right side, while now they changed the entrance to the left.

Knitting the air/the in-between

Sometimes I like to knit not the object itself, but just the air around it.

Below is a ‘treeless’ rendering (left side) of the tree on the right. I avoided knitting the branches, and just knit the shapes around them (much as possible).

The two bellow are done with a similar idea, treating the shapes as abstract and mixing the negative and positive images:

 

Back to the top of the page, these are 2 scarves with Meher Baba’s signature:

I used 2 colors, one for the shapes created below the signature, and one for ‘the air above it’. This is about how His signature cuts the space. The scarf starts with the M itself as part of the inc.

 

 

 

Welcome Home!

Based on Meher Baba’s Samadhi, this is a design I wanted to do for a long time. The coaster is done in double knitting, the photo above shows both sides of the first coaster. It shows the threshold, the door, and the piece above it.

The pattern is also somewhat based on my ‘Childlike Samadhi’:

I also made a black one:

And 2 blue & white, one of them with a garter st for the Samadhi walls, which I am really sorry not to be able to detail:
