Out with the Blue and In with the Purple

But not so fast. Before we move forward and delve into the purple... Here a couple of Blue Finished Objects:
On the left is a pair of Ragmittens and on the right is a Purl Lace Scarf. Both yarns are fom Insubordknit:

June was a good knitting month --I definetly did better than May. There was only one item of all of those on my list that I was not able to complete: The Felted Clogs. However, this was beyond my control as I needed 2 colorways of the selected yarn and I did not realize that until I was about to cast on. I placed an order but it was un-avoidably detained. The good news is that the clogs will be in varying shades of blue, violet, indigo--all the shades of blue and purple. Thus, they will be a good transitionary project.

Now moving into July... Here is a shot of the purple stash I will be busting through and a couple of projects I have in mind:

On the left is Carla--Lolly isnpired me to knit my first sweater and this seems like a good starter garment. On the right, is a Fiber Trends Sheep tote that I have been meaning to make --but held off 'til August in honor of PS.

Project Spectrum's Theme of the month is all things Purple!

With that in mind here is a song for you:

Purple People Eater:

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye.
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple people eater to me.

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
(one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed one-horned, flyin' puple people eater
Sure looks stange to me. (one eye?)

Well he came down to earth and lit in a tree
I said Mr. Purple People Eater don't eat me
I heard him say in a voice so gruff
I wouldn't eat you cuz you're so tough

It was a one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me. (one horn?)

I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line
He said it's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flying purple
people eater. Pidgeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin'
purple people eater (we wear short shorts)
Flyin' purple people eater
sure looks strange to me.

And then he swung from the tree and lit on the
ground. He started to rock, really rockin' around
It was a crazy little ditty with a swingin' tune
(sing aboop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom)

Well, bless my soul, rock and roll
flyin' purple people eater.
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple peopleeater.
Flyin' little people eater
Sure looks strange to me. (purple people?)

And then he went on his way, and then what do
you know. I saw him last night on a TV show.
He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em dead
Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in
his head

Hee hee! I love that song! My kids and I used to sing that along with many other sixties version songs to and from school everyday. Such fun!

Great line up of purple projects, Marisol!
