Ishbel is in the foreground, the second Snail Mitten is in the background, and one of my favourite comfy hoodies is nearby. I swear this was not staged: I've been alternating work on both projects today, and I happened to throw the hoodie on my bed instead of putting it away.
You think maybe I like purple / aubergine? Oy. Time to branch out, I think! (To be fair, the Ishbel yarn is definitely more brown than the Snail Mitten yarn, but they are both dark and purple-y)
