I think one of the things that I love most about knitting is the use of colour. I loveputting stitch after stitch of different colours into a piece of work and feeling myself soothed or excited by the combinations. This would explain why the stash has so many variegateds and mixed colour yarns.
Today's post is brought to you by the colours green and purple.
This morning we drove over to Yorkshire Lavender, where we hadn't been in 9 years. Last time we were there we found it on the way back home from Castle Howard - they had just opened and there was a hill and a portacabin. They've changed a lot.
I wish I could share the scent here. There is some lovely planting and it all appeals to the senses. Very relaxing. We had tea with lavender scones with lavender and blueberry jam. Although it was interesting, I'm fairly confident that I won't be eating lavender again in the near future.
We drove home through Bilsdale and stopped several times to just enjoy the colours.
This is why North Yorkshire is so purple - heather.
J and I have decided we should learn from the sheep who inhabit the moorland. They never seem to stressed about anything.
