This one is just opening up now, a lovely lavender. I'm slowly collecting and realizing the worth of Rhodies, I've now got 5, one still needs a new home as it wasn't doing well in it's former location.
Another poppy shot, I've had thoughts of a poppy quilt and made some feeble attempts at sketching a design, so more pictures might help. I took a bouquet of poppies for my desk at work, they were gorgeous the first day, OK the second and a mess by the third.
At knit group last night several ladies had knit teddy bears and they were so cute and cuddly, now I want to make one. I made a trip to Michael's Craft store after work and came home with a bag full, yarn and a book on knitting toys (40% off coupon of course). The yarn I bought for bears was on clearance, so that's OK, right. Here's a cute pattern for Harry Bear.
The real reason for the shopping trip is that a friend's daughter is graduating from high school on Saturday and I had the inspiration to crochet a scarf in her college colors, crimson and gray, as a present. I found this pattern on-line which I'm using, it should go quick. It was hard to find "crimson" yarn and I selected one that had little flecks of blue and purple in it. However when I pulled out the middle to start there were flecks of gold in that sections, I guess there are more colors than I thought. I cut off the gold flecked part and won't use it unless I have to.
It's been pouring rain all day, so I good day to cuddle up with some yarn.
