Purple Haze.....now if that makes you think of Jimmie Hendrix.....well....then you are of a "certain age"....... which is a GREAT age by the way.........but I am thinking more along the lines of THIS!!!
One pound, 16 FULL ounces of the richest, deepest, royal purple roving!!
I can't quite capture the true depth of color but suffice it to say that it is just an incredibly rich, beautiful purple!!
Christy, (first met through the Hurrican Sock Swap)......upon hearing that my part of the country had experienced damaging weather sent an email and phoned.....just checking to be sure that we had not sustained damage!! I know that the blogger friends I have met are the most wonderful folks on the face of the earth....but I was just so very touched that she would go to such effort to be sure that we were safe!!!!
In the course of the conversation, Christy asked if I would take some roving off her hands (which I tried to sound very gracious and not let out an ear splitting scream in her ear).....I believe there was some kind of veiled threats about "new crafts" mentioned by her hubby that may have played a part in the decision to part with this ball-o-loveliness.....and BAM.....In the mail......... ALL THIS beauty!!!!
I opened this little box and purple literally exploded.....did I mention this was no little ball but a FULL POUND????!!!! I'm sure the guy sitting next to me in the post office parking lot was wondering just WHAT I was screaming about!!! LOL!!
Christy, you touched my heart by being concerned about me and taking the time to check in with me......and I am so excited to receive the roving!!!! Hopefully I can spin something worthy of it and be sending some yarn YOUR way in the hopefully near future!!!!!
(When you check out Christy's blog please be sure and read her January 16th post)!!!!!
