Vīķis is a purple flowering vine that grows all over my meadow. Its easy to get tangled in if you try walking through it, but the tiny flowers are a beautiful violet to pale blue color. Its actually quite interesting to look, to really truly see all the colors and how they interact with each other in nature. I was getting bored, feeling like I kept using the same color combinations over and over. Now I am creating colors, from a natural source and by doing that surprising myself with new blends of yarn.
I knit this color blocked, and since I use odd lots of yarn the panels end up asymmetrical. A lovely serendipitous design element.
This is a combination of cotton, silk and kid mohair. It fits most.
*** The brooch I used to close it is NOT INCLUDED, any pin, and even some hair pins will work, be creative.
