The reason I changed my mind about starting with 10 Blue Purple is that it’s much more purple than I had expected. I thought it would be like a light periwinkle.
I still have to wait for my special knitting needle (an osage orange 4.25mm circular from Jenkins Woodworking) and the white yarn for the hem and edging, and then I can get started and post some notes. A word to the family: this is an ambitious knitting design so it will probably eat up a lot of my blog posts for a while, at least until I get a few inches of the color progression finished. Your patience is appreciated. I’m hoping to complete it before the UK trip, but it doesn’t seem likely!
