Comments: Beware the Ides of March!  (although I'm posting this a day late, so I guess its okay now).  Today's swatch is in honour of Julius Cesar's assassination in 44BC (stabbed 23 times - what a way to go!) - a Roman themed pattern, knit in the closest thing to Imperial Purple that I could find.  Et tu, Brute?
