There's no purple tuesday song... Ruby Tuesday, yes, but not purple... alas, photos only. And today I had a difficult time. I have two with designs for a third coming later (I hope!). So, without further ado, (preambles take time, and I have to head to the dentist soon!), my two purple photos. The third photo ought to appear mid-way through the day.
My mother's amethyst ring, which she gave to me years ago, saying she never wore it, and that it was bent anyway... And then I wore it to Ukrainian Christmas dinner at my aunt and uncle's place last Wednesday and my mom had no idea it had ever been hers! *sigh* mothers! hahaha!
Yarn! I haven't bought yarn in a while, and then I went to my LYS and browsed, and found myself coming back to this purple thinking "this is exactly what I need." I don't really like purple, you have to understand, but I have a winter jacket that is 100% purple (on sale, really warm, things just sort-of happen sometimes), and ever since I got it, I've been trying to reconcile my lack of purple love through knitting things that compromise: a little purple, a lot of brown and green... that's my goal with this yarn. I'm thinking a triple-strand loose-knit (these are GarnStudio skeins, just shy of sock-weight, so I can do it!) on big needles. Not only would it be warm, but I think the colour combination would be great! Or maybe I'm misguided... I'll post the rest of the yarn some time after colour week, if you really think it's heinous, let me know!
Photo number 3 will come later today!
no, I wasn't planning to take a photo of a toothbrush today, but, seriously... how fortuitous is this? I was on my way to the dentist, having forgotten to brush my teeth this morning, and so I bought a new toothbrush and scrubbed away in the parking lot... taking a photo before defiling my new purple find. And no, I didn't dig through the racks to find a purple one. I was actually planning on taking a picture of my mittens, but meh... toothbrush will do just fine!
