So I am taking a break from my vibrant reds, and I am now on a purple binge! :oD
Didn't you all know that it's the new black! ;op
Ever since I saw this when it first came out, I knew I had to make it and everyone has been knitting it up like wildfire!
I did some minor research on R.averly looking for a yarn I would like and knew I had to do this in purple!
Not wanting to double yarn and wanted to try something I never knitted with before I decided on this
(it is really hard getting a picture of purple without distorting the color!)
As of yet, I haven't "heard" any negative reviews about the Valley Yarns in Berkshire Bulky and was curious about trying it.
I wanted something cheap and it came in the right color. Viola! :oD
I have already swatched for this project and got gauge, but now it is just a matter of "when". ;op
Then I finally scratched my itch and made my very 1st Malabrigo purchase!
I was thrilled b/c it has been on my yarn wish list for a long time now!
And I have been in luv luv luv with the velvet grape forever and plan to make the Pimlico Shrug in this one day in the far future. ;op
Decisions Decisions!! :oD
