More of Meher Baba’s Real I

 

 

‘The Real I’ scarf is based on Meher Baba hand writing from the book ‘In God’s Hand’.

Through the whole book, Baba never uses the word ‘I’ for Himself, but only as ‘the real I’, ‘the infinite I’, ‘the limited I’, etc.

The scarf – very rich, soft, double stranded, with some double knit, is huge.

It’s almost like wearing a soft dress that reaches nearly to the ankles!

Meher Baba’s I (as in I am)

Based on Meher Baba’s writing of the word ‘I’, from the book ‘In God’s hand’. To my surprise, even though Baba did write “I” a few times, it was never “I am”.
These are the I’s I used:

Sky Blue: Real I (i.e. mind stopped i.e. Self) = Light natural, page 1.
Blue: & when stopped feels I am unlimited. Page 17.
Purple: …feels I am this body only… page 17.
Green: The false I, page 17.
Yellow: The false I, page 17.
Orange: false I i.e. egoism, page 1.
Red: false I (i.e. mind working, egoism) = Darkness unnatural, page 1.

Mixed sts / Couples knitting

This is a new / continued theme I’m still exploring: I see the knitting as a double knit fabric but sometime do double strand garter st or st.st.

If you want to try it yourself:

a double knit unit = 1 knit facing st + 1 purl facing st.

Change a unit like that to 1 double strand st or 2 st.sts (k on one side p on the next).

There is a lot that comes with it and I’m still learning (it’s fascinating), and I hope to write more about it. For now here are some photos:

Above is one of my current projects, I’m actually half way through the other side by now. Mixing short rows with the above way of stitching.

 

 

 

 

 

 

and a scarf using that technique.

 

 

 

 

 

And this is how it started:

1. mixing double knit and stockinet

2. Mixing dk & double strand:

Sunburst, Baby Blanket

This blanket has been in the planing for a while. Then the Baby’s Mom called to say the shower will be in the end of that week and I started knitting as fast as I could, finishing one hour before the shower…

The blanket is double knitted, see the other side below. Originally I planned to make it into a pattern, but it will need a lot of polishing before I can do that, and I think I will just leave it at that. The name ‘Sunburst’ was given by the Baby’s aunt, and I like it a lot.
