FO: Bitterroot
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.


Pattern: Bitterroot
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in colorway Velvet Bilberry

You do such beautiful things in lace. I envy you! I have tried to start a hat on size 3 needles and have frogged 3 times now and put it away. The small needles are getting the best of me and the really thin yarn. I am sure your mom will love showing this off.
