The Last Days of Purple
Project Spectrum purple month is almost over. There were no purple flowers in my yard, only periwinkle ones...Blue Daze, Agapanthus and some daisy-like weed. Periwinkle-a purplish blue, a type of snail and a type of flower, used medicinally for menstrual disorders. I never knit my pinkish-purple yarns, Cascade Pastaza and Heathers. I blame the heat and being wooed by Noro and Socks that Rock., not to mention the wander to the dark side of hooking.
I managed a few earrings and a couple of bracelets in the air conditioning of my friends home. Nothing fancy, just trying to use up some stash, hopefully to sell at a craft fair in November.
On the knitting front, I am in the final garter rows of Klaralund. Wyvern socks are approaching the heel turn, and Rogue is resting.
