A Purple THING10 April 2010
I finished the purple ‘thing’ over the Easter weekend and have managed to wear it a couple of times. It looks better with a thin black vest underneath but although it won’t be long before the winter sets in, today was really warm.
I have to say it’s the most dreadful piece of knitting I’ve produced for many a long year – the finishing is really poor, the yarn was awful. It’s Rowan Linen Drape which is now discontinued. The colours in the range were terrific but it’s very difficult to work with.
But I really like wearing it. It’s a great colour and I love the way it drapes and swings about when I walk.
