This picture is done in the weaving style. When I designed it I forgot to consider the effect of mixing colors (red+yellow=orange). So, had a little surprise, but that's part of the fun.
In my heart this is about Baba and Mehera in the New Life. Maybe because of Mani and Meheru description of how they would get up in the morning and there would be just fields and quietness or birds and the sun-light on Beloved Baba's hair.
The chart is available as pdf for $5.00, and is also in the books 'Color & Picture Knitting' and 'Knitting with Baba', by Mayan & Richard Ward.

I woke up with this image in my mind on February 12th 2012 (Dhuni day). The image was detailed and ready to knit, including how to do the border.
Weaving technique, each stitch is made of 2 yarns: one for the stripes (background), and one for the picture of the seagull. This permitted me to have the seagull seem transparent.
I wanted to give the feeling of being one with nature.
