Did you know that sometimes inspiration can come from the simplest thing. I spent the last week visiting my mother in law. She is a delightful and very bright woman who spends her summer in the House with the Purple Doors. Upon our arrival my mother in law decided that the doors looked a little sad and needed some work. I jumped at the chance to do a little house painting. After a few hours scrapping and a few coats of paint she had 3 beautiful, bright and cheery doors again. I got so involved in the house work that I painted her hallway wall Blue as well.
Once my tasks were over I couldn't stop thinking of the Purple Doors and how sweet and caring they looked. I have never been a fan of Purple, I rarely use it, or wear it for that matter. I found myself thinking of these purple doors and so I decided to knit a hat. I thought that Cupcakes are sweet and that pairing them with some Violets might just work. I have also started 2 more hats that have flower motifs. Photos coming soon.
Oh, and lets just say that I found a purple yarn that looks like it jumped off my mother in laws door and landed on a hat! Hooray for inspiration!
