It's a lovely eggplant purple, although the label calls it amethyst.

Next, I think I'll knit a knit cap, something I can call a monmouth cap for my hubby's reenacting gear.  It'll also be using larger yarn, but on dps instead of two needles.  If I base the hat on the pattern I'm thinking about, I'll probably use 9 double pointed needles; that way I won't have to  use stitch markers to mark the decreases.  It looks intimidating, but you still only knit 2 needles at a time, no matter what you're doing.

Waiting on an ergonomic keyboard for my upstairs writing sanctuary.  I type on one of these here because it helps with my carpal tunnel symptoms,  and now I have trouble typing on regular keyboards...LOL.  But If I'm going to do serious writing up there, I guess I need a serious keyboard.

All but one of my Arthurian references have come in and I am ready to rock and roll on my story.  So it's a good thing the keyboard will be here soon.

I need to write upstairs.  At least there I can escape Facebook for a little while...LOL.

Sounds pretty! I've never knitted on DPNs before. Is it hard? I've always wanted to learn how to knit in the round, but my granny doesn't knit any more & I'm not sure if she remembers how. *sighs*

*nods* I hope the new keyboard helps... It also sounds like you got some good reading there. :D

I use an ergonomic keyboard at home & work. But I'm usually writing on my non-ergonomic laptop. That seems kind of counter intuitive, doesn't it?

I'm glad your writing sanctuary is working out well!
