(lace is everywhere, third in series)
these are my mom’s plant cuttings. each year she brings her impatiens plants indoors for winter and propagates new ones for next year’s garden from the mother plants.
and now we have these pretty, lace-filled glasses lined up along the sunny kitchen window sill.
it’s snowing . . . we are supposed to get a great big snowstorm today and tomorrow and it looks like the promise will be fulfilled. it’s a good day for knitting.
tonight we’re supposed to go out to dinner and a show, though; i dunno if that’s going to happen (personally i think we should rent some movies and make popcorn and stay home, but it’s not entirely up to me, hee-hee!).
yesterday we went to visit my great aunt tina who will turn 90 (ninety!!) in april. the first thing she said was “let’s see those shawls!”; i guess she had visited my blog and seen some of the recent work and was remembering when she used be able to crochet and knit (she like crochet better, but i think that if you get to be 90 years old you get a free pass on that).
i worked a bunch on the snow shawl last night but it doesn’t look different enough this morning to show you another picture. so instead, i took a photo of the new sock on the block
(darn, i need to remember to turn of that date stamp in the camera).
this is tesserae, a nice conservative dress sock, but not SO conservative that we can call it plain, or boring to knit.
i also started sock #2 of the violets rising pair, but there’s not enough happening yet to take photos.
ok, i also promised some new sock patterns today so i really need to get those into the shop (i conked out last night; hanging around with my “retired” mom is exhausting).
