YAY! Thanks for participating - please email me (email@example.com) with your mailing address so that I may pass your info on to my contact at Teasia. If I don't hear from you by Monday, I'll have to draw another winner.
As of a few days ago, I officially stopped grumbling at my bougainvillea because it finally started blooming again! Sheesh! I moved it several times to sunny spots, fertilized it twice, and kept it watered. I was expecting pretty pink blooms all summer, but at this point I'll take what I can get:
Hello my pretty!
Tried to get a picture of the blooms with Paco in the background, but Paco overruled that shot - HE'S the focus of the picture, forever and always. I should know better by now.
While the bougainvillea took its sweet time in blooming, my lantana is looking just gorgeous:
This is my kind of plant - all I do is water it, and it grows and blooms like crazy!
One more plant to brag on:
This is $3 worth of Blue Daze that is blooming and spreading out nicely - another favorite!
Now that I'm finished with my baby knits, I picked up some projects that I'd stopped midway through. Here's a pair of socks, all finished and ready for cooler weather:
Yarn is from In the Deep Hue Sea, colorway is When Worlds Collide. Toe yarn is from another skein, Play at Life Fiber Arts Maki.
This yarn was so interesting to knit - I didn't know what to expect, as this was what it looked like before I wound it to knit:
Turns out, the black was hard to knit, but it really made the rest of the colors pop, so it was worth the effort.
A lovely toe...
And a beautiful Fish Lips Kiss heel, if I do say so myself!
I've started knitting a shawlette with some cool yarn that I bought years ago; right now it looks like a hot mess as there are some simple lace panels inset that don't look good until you finish and block the item, but it's keeping me interested. I'm working on a full knitting report for the baby items I knitted for Cary's baby so that should be up next week.
For tomorrow we have a little running, a little breakfasting, and a little shopping on the agenda...all while trying not to bake in this heat. Is it winter yet? Hah!
Have a great weekend!
