Purple Sand Verbena
There were several clumps of the sand verbena growing by the roadside. This one was more vibrantly purple.
Sand Verbena
I saw this bright splotch of purple by the side of the road the other day. Went back with my camera and it turned out to be a flower I'd never seen before, so I looked it up and apparently it's called Sand Verbena.
I had an inquiry about my 4th doctor scarf on Etsy earlier today. The question was whether I could make it from a specific type of yarn and how much it would cost to do so. I mentioned for the sake of clarity that it would be crocheted and not knitted and then quoted a price (higher than my original because the yarn cost more and I would need more of it to make the scarf). The inquirer responded that the price was “very high for crocheted” and that they assumed from my original price that it was knitted. I responded (courteously) that I price it that high because it is very time consuming and hard on my hands and I don’t want to do it unless it is really worth my while. I can understand wanting it to be knitted - the original scarf WAS knitted, after all - but I feel a bit irked about that phrasing, “the price is very high for crocheted.” As if crochet is somehow inferior to knitting, as if it didn’t get tedious and hurt my hands to work on that scarf nearly every day for three months. A lot of effort and time went into that crocheted scarf. Again, I do understand wanting it knitted, because the original was knitted and they want a more true replica, and perhaps they didn’t mean to denigrate crochet, but darn it I feel just a bit insulted and peeved.
