Purple Yarnalong

Just as I was taking the photo to illustrate this post, my little girl came in from the garden brandishing the perfect floral accompaniment.  No idea what it is but it is beautiful and thistle-like! 

My current no-brainer knitting is a very plain jumper with no shaping, all very basic.  The pattern I am using is Sirdar 2256 which is designed for use with its fairisle effect yarn, Crofter.  I have made the jumper once before with that yarn and it has been a really useful, chuck-it-on piece.  I thought this pattern would be a good way to use up some lovely heathery purple double knit from my stash

The pattern is so simple that it has been a perfect project to work on while watching telly, even the gripping subtitled stuff!

My reading matter is The Montana Stories by Katherine Mansfield, published by Persephone Books.   I do like it when my books coordinate with my knitting!

Joining in with Ginny for the Yarnalong.


  1. Gorgeous pictures! You are lucky to have a photo shoot assistant. My daughter would have brought the Legos or the bubble machine. She still needs some training :-)

    I've found your blog via Yarn Along. Lucky me!

  2. What a beautiful purple! The flower is perfect with it!

  3. Love that purple yarn, perfect colour.
