Temporary(?) Obsession

The impulsive yen to knit in wine colors is not abating. I blame the days on end of perfect, golden sunshine and the consistently brilliant sunsets of the last week or so. The evenings are beginning to cool as well, and it just begs for sitting out on the balcony with a smoky red, enjoying the quiet air.

So Raspberry Merlot finished, and I immediately cast on a deep purple beret. I finished that and a matching cowl, and was still not satiated. We won’t talk about the failed Kindle cover. Now I’m plowing through another, totally different grape-themed Kindle cover, and I’m not feeling an end in sight.

Kindle cover


I think I’m going to turn it into a collection. Surely someone else will be interested in a wine/grape themed E-book, right? Especially if I get it done at the rate I’m currently tearing through projects, and they have all Fall to knit!

    It would be sort of neat if you came up with a book of wine-inspired knits. Maybe organized by wine region or grape or something like that.

    And you could write about yarn the way wine writers write about wine: “Ambitiously oaky, with an effervescent hint of barnyard, and a lingering aftertaste of triple filtered coffee grounds”
