The top three photos are of the last yarn in my Ashitaka series, which I’m calling “Will to Live”—I tried to get the moonlit moments of Ashitaka taking San from the ironworks, the blood staining both of them, and that quiet game-changer when he says Ikiro. Live. You’re beautiful, and throwing your life away is too foolish.
That quiet beat of heroism sums up the movie, to me. He’s dying, and she’s ungrateful, and he still says that she deserves to seek life.
The bottom set of photos show how the three skeins all look together. They are heavy and gorgeous, let me just say that if you had an 800 yard project that would show off one-of-a-kind handspun nicely, these would not disappoint you.
Thanks chroniclesofescapism for the lovely photos of the set! All of the pictures were pretty, I want to find a way to use them…
