Harold and the Purple Crayon is the first children’s book of the year. Harold, is a curious four-year old boy who, with his purple crayon, has the power to create a world of his own simply by drawing it.  Harold wants to go for a walk in the moonlight, but there is no mom, so he draws one.  He has no path so he draws a path.  The story continues as Harold creates his imaginary world.  I remember my mom reading this classic story to me when I was a small child.  It was so much fun to create this self striping colorway with two larger sections of color and four regular sections of color.  Beginning the sequence is a larger section of royal purple followed by two normal sections of dark grey and lavender then another larger section of fuchsia and two normal sections of light grey and blue.  Dyed on my Barn Owl base (75% SW Merino 25% Nylon) a 4ply sock yarn with 437yds/100g.  This base gives great stitch definition and is a joy to use.
