Regenerate Oliva | Mood Board

Regenerate means to rejuvenate, revitalize, and renew.  As with the change of seasons where parts of the world are shifting from winter to spring or summer to fall the world is in a process of renewing itself.   These words hold great promise, especially for so many of us who feel uneasy, most often in our bodies but increasingly in our souls. 

We chose the word regenerate for the mood of this club, in the hopes that through knitting, crochet and / or weaving with a soothing color, our mind, body and soul will regenerate and feel more resilient to current events.

We extend to you all an olive branch and introduce you to the new club color OLIVA (Olive), the peaceful one. Italians cannot survive without olive oil in their life, and green symbolizes growth and harmony. 

The olive tree is one of the most beloved and sacred trees. It lives longer than other fruit trees, and its rare and wonderful ability to survive has made it a symbol of peace, friendship, wisdom, fertility, prosperity, health, stability, and tranquility.

In the story of Noah’s Ark, the white dove who was sent to look for land returned with a sign of life, an olive branch, thus the olive tree is referred to as “The Tree of Life“. 

The Tree of Life symbolizes our personal development, uniqueness, and individual beauty. Just as the branches of a tree strengthen and grow upwards to the sky, we too grow stronger, striving for greater knowledge, wisdom, and new experiences as we move through life together.
