Lately, it seems like purple is everywhere. This weekend I passed field after field of potato plants
sprouting purple flowers.
My dad arrived from the farmers market with this lovely bouquet in tow
and I couldn’t get over the range of purples. Lavendar is in full bloom everywhere and I can’t pass a plant without rubbing a sprig between my fingers. It is my favorite smell and one of my favorite colors.
Did any of you see this on 4th of July?
We had purple bursts in the fireworks display in Birmingham!
I have always said green is my favorite color, but purple runs a close second. I think because it comes in so many varying shades between red and blue. This proves true in the plants in full bloom at the Detroit Zoo…
Since I have purple on the brain, I can’t help but take photos of the purple coming at me. In the cafe at Meijer Gardens, there is an amazing glass installation by Dale Chihuly.
The ceiling is covered in glass pieces that range in all the colors of the rainbow, but of course we happened to sit below the purple section.
The other day when Matt and I were running errands in Detroit we passed this
and he exclaimed, “look at all that purple!” Now I have him noticing things he never did before and the colors used. It’s like we’ve been on an I Spy game for weeks.
I’m sure that some of you remember the purple potatoes I posted a few weeks ago,
but I forgot to mention that all my groceries were bagged like this!
Purple is everywhere and I couldn’t be more excited that today is the release of the FIRST pattern for the FIRST knitting club shipment of Passion. Anne’s club all about purple couldn’t have better timing. Purple is the Pantone color of the year and I can’t wait to see the journey Anne is going to take us on throughout the months of the club.
The first pattern was released today and while I was writing this post, Robert the mailman brought my first squishy package.
I won’t leak any spoilers, but OMG am I excited about the pattern and photo shoot Anne did for this project. Amazing! You can see spoiler pics of the pattern on Anne’s ravelry designer page here (look for Passion Spoiler 2014 as the cover photos).
The yarns for this club were meticulously chosen from small business owners with a passion for quality yarn and beautiful color. They are amazing! There are a few memberships left and you can read more about it here or join right now here.
