great pictures as always! can't wait to see what you do with the handpaintedyarn!
the pearl reminds me of the bulky I recently knit a sweater out of -- except handpaintedyarns.com called it "pearl ten" at the time I ordered it, and then later moved the details about it to another colorway they called "persephone." Very similar though!
oh isn't purple a fantastic and enigmatic colour. i am taken with it at the moment. even got myself a purple coat... and purple goes with dark brown, lime, denim blue and bottle green. which actually is quite interesting as bottle green and grey is often too dull, denim blue and red a bit air hostessy. and the yarn ball and the plant looks good in purple...
Beautiful photos, as usual. Love that purple. "Wandering Traveler"? Not sure if you're being politically correct or not - most everywhere else, and in my family (who are Jewish) it was a "Wandering Jew". This euphenism gave me quite a chuckle.
