Yarn Along: Gothic Romance

When Northanger Abbey arrived from Netflix, I watched it immediately.  Pete came in just as it was ending and, once the credits rolled, said, "That was nice.  Now let's start at the beginning."  This is why I love him.
 
All the mentions of the scandalous novel The Mysteries of Udolpho, by Ann Radcliff made me curious.  I decided to give it a try and downloaded the free Librivox audiobook.
 
But what to knit during this bleak tale?  
  
A purpley-black stocking cap, obviously. It is just tragic enough.
I'm running out of yarn though...

Stripes it is, then!

Oh that purpley black is such a gorgeous colour (and I love the way you matched your pattern to what you were watching!)

What a great color -- I'm sure the hat will turn out wonderfully. I love to knit while watching movies or listening to audio books, especially when the story and the project go together well!
