Smell of the sea and sun oil
I love this shawl. It is probably about 20yrs old. Even then my love of purples and aubergines is evident. It accompanied me on many of my holidays abroad a long time ago and despite many washings it still smells of the sea and sun oil. I thought that you might like to see what I am trying to achieve with my new selection of granny squares. This next one will be subtler colourings but I do have quite a lot of purple and lilac bits so I can see another one hovering in the near future.
Around the same time as the shawl I also had a granny square waistcoat in black, purple, emerald and gold. I have never really been a shrinking violet when it comes to colour!
I did have to pass a wool stall on my way to the fruit and veg stall in Bury market but more of that tomorrow. I have a dog to walk and washing to hang on the line.
