Horizon

the line between earth and sky

Not only is horizon the line hidden behind a scenic range, it is also a limit, usually of one’s knowledge or interest – the perfect encapsulation of my introduction to the mountain west. Having spent my entire life on the east coast, I thought “purple mountain majesty” was just poetic license. I also thought I knew all the ways to knit a rectangle. It was not until I was forced to eclipse my personal horizon that I began to see the angles within the rectangle. Created from four differently sized triangles joined to create the correct length, then worked as chevrons of various sizes until the correct width, then decreased into separate triangle sections, this unique construction may change the way any knitter looks at the rectangle.
