Thankfully, there was enough purple yarn for the front of the cape! Not much left over. I'll be ripping out the swatch so I can use purple in a couple of the miters on the fronts.I have no idea why the color washes out so horribly. Natural light? Washed out. Flash? Washed out. Maybe outside on a gloomy day?
Do you read The Rainey Sisters blog? Well, scroll down. I can't get my embed the link thing to quit highlighting text. But in the March 16 post, Susan posts a picture of the most stunningly beautiful knitting you can hope to ever see. Which of course, led me to http://thingssoolikes.blogspot.com - (embed code not cooperating). It's all stunning. Go take a peek - but bring a bib to wipe up the drool! Don't say I didn't warn you though.
