King Charles Brocade

The project I was working on before the Olympics started is a pullover for me in Swan's Island Organic Fingering yarn (Robin's Egg blue) in King Charles Brocade. It's on hold until my Games project is complete. But imagine my surprise when I saw these images [color photo / ultraviolet photo] yesterday of the original vest King Charles wore on the day of his execution. Apparently, they are going to use some high-tech tests to determine if the stains on the pullover are the king's blood. Ah, the times we live in. How crazy that the color is so close to my sweater's!


  1. wow. very cool and kinda gross at the same time! The vest is beautiful though... both yours and his :-)


  2. wow serendipity!
    it's amazing how close the colors are!

    thank you for the kind birthday wishes for Felix. i love the idea of a ramadan birthday.

    i tried to write you but my message kept bouncing back.

    have a great weekend!

  3. Somehow, it's a small world isn't the right phrase, but it's the closest that's coming to mind.
