We had 79F yesterday. Today it’s in the 40’s. I’m just a bit disappointed in Ms. Spring. It’s fine that she came for a visit, but she left without leaving a forwarding address. Rude bitch.
Oh, sure. We have some spring flowering bulbs. One last snowdrop. Some crocuses or crocii? Whatever a multitude of crocus might be. But, I’m concerned now that we’ll have temperatures cold enough to burn the foliage of the daffodils and tulips and hyacinths. That would be cruel and unattractive. Mother Nature is a tough broad. Yet, I never cease to admire what the old girl does with color and composition. I have to hand to her. She’s got the touch. I uncovered the bulbs, but did not remove the old leaves. I wanted to leave some cover for perennials and bulbs.
Thank you all for your kinds remarks about PurplePi. I still haven’t counted the stitches and might just let it go. I’m afraid it would make me physically ill if I did count them. I figure it’s more than a bunch when it’s on 3 circulars. Still, I’m plugging onward and upward with her. I have at least 10 to 15 more rows before I can even consider binding off (I may be at that for another 2 years!). I’ll keep you posted, but spare you anymore pics since she looks the same, just a bit older.
I have even started perusing the shawl and stole patterns in my queue on Ravelry for the next shawl/stole project. I cannot allow myself to cast on until PurplePi is completed (the knitting anyway), but I’m hankering to cast on a new lace shawl.
And, since I’m on a Joe Cocker binge, here’s Joe with Leon Russell and “Cry Me A River”. Didn’t he have a pretty smile?
Please go by and wish my grrlfriend, Margene, a very happy birthday!!! It appears I jumped the gun. It’s not until Saturday. So, have a happy birthday week, Sweetie!!! And, have a good one!
