John 15: 4,5 & 8: Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing… By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.

The Vine & Branches

Originally done to match a beautiful cherry blossom fabric I had, “The Vine & Branches” is dyed as a pair of colorways. Both “Abiding Fruit” and “The Vine & Branches” are done in browns, turquoise, green and varying shades of purple. “The Vine & Branches” has much more browns in the colorway. This is one of the original colorways that catapulted me into the yarn-dyeing business. So it is a special yarn to me.

In fact, this colorway is what we’d refer to as a happy accident. I was very new to the yarn dyeing process. I didn’t really know that much about how to get specific colors and how to control the placement of where it went. I was attempting to match the fabric that resulted in “Abiding Fruit”, and it turned out like this. But I liked it just as much.
