Ever since I knit Damson for my mom's Christmas present I have wanted one for myself. It was just a matter of finding enough yardage of the right yarn. But it was pretty much fated to happen. There's a reason Ysolda is such a popular designer.
When I was at the fiber festival last month this yarn lept right off the table and into my arms (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). It is everything I want in a purple. Neon, but underscored by black. It is basically the most awesome thing ever. The tag says it is "Twinkletoes" Fingering Weight Soft, Fluffy Wool (seriously, that's what it says), but I had some trouble finding it on Ravelry. I'm still not convinced I found the correct yarn.
The astute among you have already noticed that I did not knit the lace edging. I decided at the last minute to leave it off because I just did not think I had enough yarn. Although, now that I'm looking at the yarn again I think I might have actually had enough. Oh well. I still love it.
And among things I love, this white-washed brick wall, covered in ivy is right in view of my balcony. I think the lamp-post light is just lovely.
