Ig-knit-ion: accomplished!

Row upon row and here I go! It feels great.

And then to have something small and portable to work on at Purlescence, I grabbed some soft Colinette wool that I’d gotten at their yarn swap meet. Monet colorway: how cool is that for the daughter of a modern-art dealer? My dad, my little sister and I spent the summer I was 16 with one of Monet’s proteges and his family, driving around the country museum-hopping. (Mom was helping my oldest sister with her first baby.)

I figured returning the gift of the yarn as a hat to go in the shop’s Halos of Hope box seemed just the thing.

I am sure the hat will be great, but I am loving the spark of enthusiasm in your writing. I’m so glad it is feeling wonderful!

And now having clicked on the link to the yarn – what else could that yarn have been called but “Monet”?!
