Oh WOW!!! Loving your new purple one...your stripes are really zing-a-ling!!!
These are beautiful Diana. Love your colour combinations and the neatness of your work. :)))
Okay, Louise, you asked for all purple. Is this purple enough?
THE STORY BEHIND THE SQUARE :)
When I first thought about a design for this square (TC, of course), I wanted to use two shades of purple. However, since Louise asked so sweetly for an all-purple square (and because I have, perhaps, been a little hard on all you pink and purple fans), I wanted it to be different from my ordinary stripes. So ... I decided on a Croknit square (which is, of course, just a TC square worked with a double-ended hook).
When you Croknit in two colors, while both colors show on both sides, you end up with one side predominantly one color, and the other side predominanty the other color. So I thought I would use this nice sort-of-sparkly-and-fluffy pale mauve for the front and leave the deep purple for the back.
However ... as I was working on it I found that I was beginning to like the 'back' of the square equally as well as the 'front'. So, Louise (if you're still with me here) you can decide which side you like for the front of your all-purple square. Just remember when it gets to S.A., the 'sewer-upper' will decide which side she wants for the front :)) xo
Are you surprised that the purple photographed so well? Yes? Well, I will tell you my secret. I held a blue square beside the purple square I wanted to photograph (I shook it, actually :) and I said, "Now, see this? This is a blue square. You are NOT blue ... you are purple!"
Laugh if you like, but it worked ... didn't it? hahahaha xo
I don't know about Louise, but I really can't decide which I love better, Glo...both sides are SPECTACULAR!!!
Thank you for the tip, re making the purple photograph purple....only problem is, I don't want to waste what little time left of February, I have, on knitting a blue square to shake it at my purple ones....LOL. xo
Pure MAGIC, Gloria!!! Stunning TC rich Purple square!!! Thanks.
I bow to ;your expertise in creating these magnificent square. And enjoying a belly laugh over you showing the camera difference of blue and purple.
Glo, I've been with you all the way! Thank you for making such a beautiful square, I love it and can't decide on a favourite side as they are both stunning. Thanks also for sharing your secret re photographing a purple square. It certainly does work as your square does indeed look purple so I will have to give it a go......may have to purchase some blue yarn before I can make a blue square!! xo
My brain hurts just thinking about Croknit, but the result is amazing - side B is definitely my favourite, love the deep purple!
