"Purple is one of my favorite colors, and as I was organizing my stash into the various color schemes, -- shades of green, magenta, black and purple-- my eye kept returning to the purples, from deepest purple to the lightest lavender.  I also had many textures within this color range -- two nubby boucles,  two eyelash yarns, a very textured multicolored yarn, a couple of yarns with a thick nap, a little ribbon, a little metallic yarn, and finally a smooth wool.  The challenge then was to combine the colors and textures to create a pleasing whole.  I think I accomplished that."
