blue, er--purple Monday


I'm home! I'm so glad to be home. I will grab a few moments while I wait for the next load of laundry to post some glamour shots of the Purple and Brown Wrap. (Why do I feel the need to name my handknits? And it's such a creative name...) My wrap, which had mostly been knitted the car while waiting for children to attend various lessons, was completed on the road this past weekend. I was knitting as fast as I could to make the deadline on the 20th for photos to the pattern designer Sarah. I managed to take that squirrely photo that's in the previous entry, but I couldn't get it to upload to flickr! Grrr. It's just as well. I'm saved the task of deleting it to make way for these pictures...

(The ornate frame on this painting suits the wrap, don't you think?)

"In the morning the wrap remained where she had flung it after the show--on the corner of her favorite painting..." (As I said in the caption on flickr, please forgive my third-person narration, but this romantic wrap inspires all sorts of storytelling in my head.)

I love the pictures of your wrap hanging from the paintings (and the paintings are really beautiful). The colors do go great.

How fun to see the finished item! I love the wrap...it would be fun to see the colors in person. I hope Colorado was fun. It must have been, because you got to knit!

Oh! And I forgot to say that not only do I think your "Meathead" hats are cool. On Stich Marker's (Larissa's) latest post, she has 36 of her recent favorite flikr photos, and your creamsaver hat is one of them! That's 3 of yours that have been favored. I too am really impressed with your creativity.

And you asked why you must name your works? Might it come from your talented hubby? I like it, anyway, keep it up!
