purple cotton fleece

I ordered enough purple cotton fleece to knit the deep v-neck sweater in the book "Classic Knits". If you asked me when I was three, what was my favorite color, I would say very confidently, "Purple!" (How could there possibly be any other answer?) After my divorce, the color I was drawn to was red. All tones of red, cool and warm. Who knows why? By the time my new husband and I started dating, with several years of roller coasters under my belt, my wardrobe barely had any color in it but red.

This is my first sweater, and since I only knit to satisfy my inner child, purple it is. Yes, a photo would be quite suitable here. But I haven't posted for a week, and I don't know how seriously "Knitting Blogs" takes that once per week rule, so just to be sure, I'm posting sans photo, as the cotton fleece isn't in yet, and I am a rule follower to a fault. Shall I name my sweater Tina Dina after my childhood imaginary friend? (As opposed to my adult imaginary friend, Rico Suave :) Yes, I shall.

Oh how fun! I love how a certain color can carry so much association and memory.

I'm looking forward to seeing you knit this sweater, as it's been on my to-do list for a while. I can't wait to see it in purple!

Well, I cast on yesterday. Gauge was tough to get, I'm a little nervous about it! Yikes!
