All day today, I would periodically refresh my email and ponder as to why there were no comments to my blog. Then I remembered that I hadn't posted since last week, heh. Whoopsee!
Well, despite what we might think, Summer must be here, right? Because everywhere I look, flowers are just on the brink of bursting open. My Bee Balm has grown to quite a prodigious size, and is covered with little buds, getting ready to seduce some unsuspecting butterflies...
My Hostas are stretching their delicate necks above their luscious foliage (gah.... I know, I'm trying to be all poetic and stuff, and it's coming out really cheesy, isn't it?)
And the little pumpkin plant Emilie and I planted a few weeks ago is sporting it's very first flower! See it?I don't know why I'm so excited by the idea of growing my own pumpkin for Halloween. Maybe I just watched It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown one too many times growing up? :)
Lots of my knitting is also on the verge of greatness :) My Mad Color Weave socks are past the heel, and I love them dearly, despite having to switch needles after having lost TWO 2.25 mm Harmony dpns! Those are the perils of commuter knitting, I guess...
I also finished Hamsa last night! It's upstairs blocking as I type, but by the time I was done threading everything on those blasted blocking wires (I. Hate. Blocking), the light had gone (as had my eyesight, to say nothing of my threshold for pain). Pictures next post, I promise.
And last but not least, I got some very special yarn in the mail last week. It's destined for baby knitting, for the yet to arrive Little Miss Enabler, so I can't really blog about it (Sorry!). But I can give you a wee taste...Oh yeah... this is going to be good.
Happy Knitting Everyone!
