I mentioned in aprevious post that this was going to be the summer of purple. What I didn't mention then was that my second stealth project was also purple.
Now that the wedding* is over (a beautiful love filled, if humid and toasty wedding) and, hopefully the present has been opened, I can reveal just what that second stealth project was. And also just in case they couldn't figure out what the heck was in that box.
Since I was told her color for the kitchen, as well as for the wedding, was purple I decided on hand knit placemats.
Nothing spectacular, but knit with hours of love and prayers for the newlyweds.
Th pattern is my own, a simple stockinette field, surrounded by seed stitch, knit from end to end. Simple knitting, if brainless and a bit tedious by the time #6 rolled around, it is a great project for beginners. I had wanted to knit it in a linen blend, but nothing in the right color was available at the time.
So...onward to more purple.
