One of my favorite conversations from the 1985 movie with Whoopie Goldberg goes like this:
Shug: More than anything, God love admiration.
Celie: You saying God is vain?
Shug: No, not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it.
Celie: You saying it just wanna be loved, like it say in the Bible?
Shug: Yeah, Celie. Everything wanna be loved. Us sing and dance and holla, just wanting to be loved. Look at them trees. Notice how the trees do everything people do to get attention. . .except walk?
Shug: Oh, Miss Celie, I feels like singing!
Inspired also by the finishing of my Basic Cabled Socks, in African Violet Stroll from Knit Picks, I feels a little bit like singing too! So, welcome to my Purple-y, Purple Blog!. . .with pictures of the aforementioned socks. . .
. . .and some purple flowers. . .
. . .and a purple windsock. . .
. . .and a purple daisy. . .
. . .and a van with purple tinted windows. . .
. . .and light purple flowers with deep purple centers. . .
. . .and purple bikes. . .
. . .and new, purple growth on green trees. . .
. . .and even purple houses!
It was a very purple walk around the neighborhood yesterday, and I loved every minute of it!
I also love that I have finished and blocked my Harumi Cardigan, in Classic Elite Allegoro - yummm!!
It's ready to wear, but too hot to put it on today. . .even in cotton, with 3/4-length sleeves. . .it's supposed to hit 90 F this afternoon!
But, it turned out sooooo nice. . .I can't wait for the cooler weather tomorrow, and (hopefully) a little photo shoot with the gals from CKW on Ravelry!
