Here is my unintentional tribute to Prince – my darling little “purple raindrop” is the result of a happy accident.
I had intended to make a purple octopus, but I didn’t increase enough stitches at the very beginning of the project, and as a result, the head ended up being quite pointy. I faced a dilemma: should I succumb to my perfectionist tendencies and rip out all the stitches to start again? Or should I proceed and alter my design–perhaps a squid?
Fortunately, I stumbled upon a third choice. I continued decreasing stitches and discovered that I had something of a little raindrop in front of me. A lavender raindrop? Why, of course! It’s purple rain!
