|Lola from Victory patterns|
My LEMON is actually a LIME.
And how did I find out? Well... I may have forgotten the source of the photo, but I at least had the sense to label it "Cos Sweater"... and only just now thought to check their website for more info.
It is 100% cotton, in a gorgeous chunky fisherman's rib.
And that colour, that COLOUR is like nothing I have seen before. It is, to my sunlight-starved brain, the repository of all that is perfect about spring-time.
Sometimes I think I must have borderline synaethesia.
This is the colour of the name "Miriam": it shimmers and dances across my imagination with such clarity, to the accompaniment of a solo flute and a blast of freshness like stepping under a cold shower on a hot sunny day. It is like drinking a glass of chilled white wine while squinting at a book in the shade of a tree. And I swear I have not been drinking.
