The big purple thing is still marching along. It’s Purless, and I really like it, and it’s going well except for one thing. I was standing in the Loopy Ewe last Thursday and Prince had just died and I was all freaked out and I was right in front of a yarn that was the perfect shade of purple (Shalimar Yarn’s Breathless in Byzantium) and I was looking at the pattern, and I was looking at the yar...

“ I will continue to freak out my children by knitting in public. It's good for them.”
