I came across some lovely stuff I had bought because I liked the look of it. But it was $16 a skein, so I bought only 2 skeins and used my lovely Stanwood things to wind ’em into balls. And then I rissoled the bits of paper left over; so I have NO IDEA what this stuff is – other than that it’s cotton, and thinner – or maybe more tightly woven ? – than normal, 4-ply cotton. Its colourway is an absolute knockout !!
Listening to yet a another crime novel I did nothing more than single crochet it into a scarf, and I was RAPT in it. I put it down the back of the green chair when I finished it last night, ready for photographing (I use the word loosely) in the morning. When I remembered it ..
someone else had decided there was a better use for the scarf.
Had some toast and 40% less salt Vegemite, and generally faffed about for a good long time; but Boodie didn’t get off, no sir ! So ..
here’s front shot showing the over-all effect of the colourway; and here
is a closeup of it, showing how effective ordinary single crochet can be. And how about those straight sides, eh ?! :D
Not sure at all why the yarn appeals so much: I’m not a purple person (dunno if I’ve ever heard a Prince song !). But I just love it.
Will add it to the Minerva scarf for my sister.
