I have cones of yarn in every colour but I seem to only see the purples. I think I have ‘Purple Syndrome’.
I previously tried breaking out with yellow and that went fine. But I seem to have regressed again. I’ve just finished two scarves and a top on a all purple warp as well …so it’s getting worse. The syndrome is now affecting my warp and weft. It’s so bad that I bought purple Tasmanian carrots yesterday, just for their hue and always have an eggplant (Aubergine) in my fridge even if it goes off.
What to do? I’ve decided to do nothing. There seems to be a popular movement advocating everyone should step out of their comfort zone which means changing colours, and often. But I’m inclined to ignore this for the moment as stepping out can also get you into trouble, make you sick, fearful and unconfident. That sounds even worse than the symptoms of purple syndrome! For the moment I’ll just accept my overly purple colour adoration and move slowly towards violet or blue. That sounds safe.
