Color week: Purple

Edited to add this. The Alzheimer's bracelet I've had on since my sister did a memory walk in August 07. I don't know if I'll ever take it off.

Color week continues with purple. At first I thought I had nothing to show. I was wrong.

My Turtle Fur hat sticking out of the mitten/hat basket in the kitchen entry.

I walked into the kitchen and found a purple block floating in Mom's glass of chocolate milk. (If you're just stopping by for color week, and don't know what I'm talking about, Mom makes art out of common household objects. Click the art label on the sidebar for some examples.) I left to grab the camera, and by the time I got back, it was out of the glass. Another photo opportunity missed. It made me look for the other purple blocks though. I found one on the kitchen table.

It looks like the dancing duck and the milk glass chicken have become friends.

Chives on my bedroom wall, which itself is blueish purple.

My current spinning. Would you believe this came out of the same dyepot as the purplish/pink/Fred yarn from the post a couple of days ago? This started out a gray/blue llama/wool/silk/mohair blend that I overdyed in the same dyepot with the white llama that turned into the Fred yarn. To make it easy, here is that yarn.

I love the color purple. I never did early in my life, but lately it has been a large part of my stash and knitting. Love your bedroom walls and the chives pix. Quite lovely.

I suppose the color might be a little off on the computer monitor, but yeah, that's Fred. I had planned on using them together, but now I'm not sure I can. I'll see what it looks like once plied and I can see them side by side.

Annie, Love your fiber freak blog and the stories about your mother. I am a fiber artist too and found you through the colour week thing that I was too late for but am doing anyway.
Cheers! You are a new fave for me!
