The sunshine and clear skies made this orchid happy. My mom is anxious to transplant it as the biggest spray is on a part of the plant outside the pot. Its all I can do to keep her from doing it before the last bud blooms! I equate big blooms with happiness. My live and let live approach to gardening has resulted in a lot of weeds but every once and awhile I get a bonus!
Speaking of weaknesses, I will have to admit, I'm a follower much of the time. I have allowed myself to be swayed by the many blogs touting the glories of Socks That Rock. The package arrived yesterday and I'm so intrigued with the color. I got the medium weight. Now to decide on the projects.
I am showing the toes of the finished Embossed Leaves pair as they really cool. AND, no kitchener stitch.
The buying bug has bit me. I have rationalized that since I found this book from an Amazon reseller I am justified. My Jo Sharp yarn is on its way...hope I can get gauge for Rogue. Lucky for my pocketbook I did not win 3 ebay auctions for Noro yarn (phew!), but I did order some for my Klaralund. Help! Paypal makes it too easy.
