Lately, I've been crocheting a lot in purples. I must say I am a bit disappointed at the purple palette I see in yarn stores - there are just not enough hues and shades I'd like to see and buy. But since ordering from abroad seems a little too over the edge (price related) for the time being I have to do with what I've got. For the magenta bead in the last photo I used a fuzzy yarn that has been in my stash for way too long, and although reluctant to what it might look like used on a bead I am pretty satisfied it turned out great. I think I just found out about this yarn's niche :)
Until my next post, have a lovely weekend!
