Did you see this picture? https://www.instagram.com/p/Bsmr6JSD47_/ I posted this on my Instagram feed a while back... The purple lighting is from plant grow bulbs--for some reason, they put out purple light--and I am so used to it now I don't actually notice it that much anymore.

Then again, this is my process; you might not be interested anyway. A New … Continue reading Process: A New Hat

So, I love Lion Brand Mandala yarn and their colorways...heck, I love the NAMES of these colorways... I knit my sweater in Sphinx. I have some Gnome here somewhere. I have Chimera.
