I knit this for my mother’s 83rd birthday. The name comes from the poem “Warning” which begins “When I am an old woman I shall wear purple …” My mom has always loved vibrant colors. This is a deep, rich purple.
Loved the pattern -- it was very well written. I didn’t use beads because I wanted something warm and soft for mom to wear around the assited living center where she lives.
Great yarn -- I love Jitterbug.
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in colorway Velvet Bilberry
