Ah yes; Autumn.
My Dad always used to bring me home a pomegranate when they were in the shops in Autumn – took me hours to eat the thing. I don’t think I actually liked the taste much, but it was very pretty to look at. Ever since, I have associated pomegranates with Autumn.
I thought it was pretty neat when I found out that pomegranates have been associated with the coming of Winter for a long time. There’s a Greek myth about Hades and Persephone that links pomegranate seeds to Winter (Persephone ate 6 pomegranate seeds while she was in the underworld, and to cut a long story short, she had to spend 6 months of the year in the underworld, which equates to Winter, and then she was allowed out for six months, which gives us Summer).
It seemed like a good idea to create a thicker pair of socks for Autumn and Winter that featured pomegranate seeds, and now I am looking for Test Knitters. If you fancy a pair for yourself, get over to my Ravelry Group, where you can sign up for the test.
This link to my Ravelry group page will take you to the very place.
