Deep Plum Colour

File 2017-09-19, 10 49 49 AMPerfect for this fall Season is this deep Purple plum colour.

I could think of many projects to knit up…if my time would allow it.

Special Order for Carla A. Canonico of
“A Needle Pulling Thread” and KNITmuch. 
Carla told me she loves her purples and is looking forward to seeing the once I have dyed for her.

“It has to be the right purple”

I believe it is the one just like the Italian dark Plums. The one we can find in most grocery stores in the past view weeks.
So here are a view skeins dyed and drying up in the last week of summer. Truly love how beautiful they look in the sunshine

Celebration Tulip Cowl

File 2017-01-12, 10 48 04 AMWe celebrate 150 Year Canada this year …

 Celebration Tulip Cowl

has been designed to honour  this event. Although I have seen the Maple Leaf Tulip in pictures only at the time of me disining this cowl. I too was inspired to reflect it in my knitting and design….with planting in the fall of 2016, 50 of the Maple Leaf Tulip bulbs. File 2017-05-31, 3 09 48 PM
