Let’s do the yarn thing for just a bit. Isn’t this pretty? These go together rather nicely if I do say so myself. I think it’s the tiny hits of lavender in the orange yarn…they just zing against the dark purple. Pretty sure you could not ask for a better fit.
It’s turning into a hat (and probably some mitts), and yarn info is a couple of posts back.
And, because just talking about pretty yarn feels sort of trivial today, I also want to say don’t worry, we’re not done doing the politics thing. I’m working on (another) post about it. I just need a few days to get my thoughts in order and into some sort of coherent form. But in the meantime, if you’re wondering, ravelry is awesome, I’m hugely proud of what they did, and you can read more about it on my previous post.
