Hi and where did spring go? I have to say its kinda cold out there! There isn’t any sun and it’s kinda damp too. I know that my lawn and plants are starting to grow and I’m really glad, just wish we could see the sun a little more! Take a look at the blossoms on my tree! I love spring time. The grass is getting greener and there are spouts all around! I also thought about getting flower boxes put under my windows in the front of the house so that I can see more beautiful, colorful growing things.
Talking about growing things, did I show you my indoor Christmas cactus plant? I am so proud of it! Haha, probably sounds silly to some, but this plant really has only bloomed two times a year and one of those times is, of course, near Christmas time. So, I am going to look into transplanting it into a bigger pot soon, but I definitely want to do it the right way so that I don’t traumatize it. I feel like a new mom! Any guidance you can give me on that would be much appreciated!
So, on to the knitting. I very excited to be taking a short knitting class this week from my friendly knitting store, Trumpet Hill, on “Ridged Moebius” , a technique that I have not used as yet. I will be using 400 yards of finger weight yarn with size 4 or 5 needles. I will be making a cowl and hope to give it as a gift. I selected the yarn already in neutrals or black, creme, and browns. Here is a picture from Trumpet Hill of their demo. Make sure to check out Trumpet Hill’s website and class schedules! When I complete mine, I will be sure to show off some pictures.
Things are moving right along with my socks that I started. I’m having fun making them, whomever they end up with. The stripes are kinda interesting.They remind me of a twist on a man’s traditional-type of sock. Here it is so far!
