Tis the New Year!
But then you know that Knitnana loves purple and participates in Red Hat Ladies Society, right? That flower with the rose button in the center of it was handcrafted by my dear sis-in-law (with whom I participate in the Red Hat Ladies activities, my partner in crime, as they say). The lovely scarf I'm wearing was also her creation, having benefited from a class in silk dyeing which she took at the TKGA convention this past September. I feel sooooooo pampered. (Yes, the scarf is in purple as well, tho' because it's silk, the shade is more muted, or so we think.) The flower, by the way, is happily attached to my red wool felt hat. IT's BEE-U-TI-FUL!
So I came home last night in a purple state of mind, and promptly decided to dig out of stash the Purple Royale worsted merino that Roxie dyed especially for me when she first got started. I'd originally thought I'd make a Clapotis from. Then I decided I'd rather not make a Clapotis in worsted...
And now I've changed my mind again...cast on this morning:
It's going to be gorgeous.
(Nope, I'm closer on my One Word, but still not quite there...I'm either narrowing it down, or getting distracted by the many perfectly decent words out there - oops! Just realized I wrote about that Over There on the other blog!)
