personal project spectrum

Everything around me is a gorgeous shade of purple. The perennial garden is bursting with purple mini iris and purple chive flowers. We have a clemantis that is overcome with purple blossoms as large as my hand. This was the first year that I figured out NOT to cut it back in the winter, and this is the first year that we've had blooms like this.

My WIP is purple as well. It's the hourglass sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts in malabrigio alpine pearl. this is the first sweater that i've attempted and i'm fully expecting not to like it. but i'm approaching it full speed ahead anyway.
