What do you get when you cross a Desperate Housewife with leftover yarn?...Well, in this case...you're getting a "Purplexed Black Parrot" Moebius!!
I had the urge to start a new one..and I ran by the 'Smallmart' before it opened on Tues...so when faced with no other options..it was either do more on some scarves, hats or dishcloths...and I woke from a nap with brain flatulence...and remembered I had a large amount of 3 yarns that needed to be used...I had just finished a moebius with the Bamboo Purplexed..with lots of yardage left, I had also a few weeks ago finished a triangular scarf with the Bamboo Parrot...also with quite a bit left...then I remembered I had at least that much of the Oasis Black left from a previous moebius...so bingo...a moebius was born..and her name is...The Purplexed Black Parrot...she's quite lovely and my husband has raved the entire knit...now that could be his frugality talking..and he isn't very complimentary, but this one really caught his eye...One thing for sure...she is the original and I think I will put her in my wardrobe...I don't know how many others would appreciate her as I do...plus she will match most anything I want to wear with her...including the pj's I have on at this moment with her draped around my neck...lol...notice, she's female!!...
I don't currently have anything going other than some busy work, but I have a trip to Yarn Theory penciled in for tomorrow...please be there!!...I NEED yarn!!

Arghhh - I love the mobieus and the name too; it's soooo original and unique! I've been using my leftover yarn to make bowls lately and it's a kind of weird fun to work the "stash" low and use every scrap of fiber for something or other (plus it allows me say, "Whoops, need more yarn now.") Great work, Dianne, as always! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope to see you and the Purplexed Black Parrot in person soon!

Hi Dianne, Thanks for stopping by and enjoying the snow! It's saturday morning and 17F outside...brrrrr, the snow is still here and now I'm sure the roads are even more treacherous...
Love the Mobieus, and yes, definitely female!
