I've been doing some knitting. One sock of the Nutkin pattern by Beth LaPensee. I had this yarn that seemed to be perfect for the pattern. It is and I love this pattern. So simple to knit - and to memorize - but it looks so fancy. There is no ribbing and no grafting. A short row heel makes me happy, too. I call mine 'Guinness at the picnic" because the browns are just the color of Guinness. And the blues and greens remind me of a forest trail.
And did you notice that the sun is shining today? Well, this morning anyway. A quick tour around the garden and I was running for the camera. The wee apple tree that we planted last year has over a dozen flower buds! Even one apple would be wonderful. But maybe a pie?
The potatoes have sprouted their leaves.
And , isn't this columbine stalk enchanting? I've never really noticed that the leaves are so tightly rolled. And look at the gorgeous raindrops nestling in the folds.
Now, I'm going to go visiting everyone. It's been a long time...wonder what everyone's doing?
