At this time of the year (spring) I have these magnificent orchids that flower and grow in pots in my garden even though they are extremely neglected. My ex-neighbour couldn't understand how they flower such beautiful blooms each year. She tries to grow them too but they are very poor in comparison.
I've had these orchids for 16 years, I started off with just one pot and now I have three pots of these beauties.
My Diamond Fantasy is coming along nicely. This is a Kaalund 2ply merino yarn in Waterlily I like this colourway. There is no pooling and the yarn is really springy, it should block well.
I also received my backorder from Kaalund their 2ply silk Enchente, for my store. The four colours I chose are Natural, Bush Fire, Pacific and Silky Oak. This yarn is very luxurious and feels divine, the colours are so rich and vibrant. And of course I am knitting socks too. These are from " Favorite Socks " from Interweave, Embossed Leaves Socks.
I decided to knit these in Cherry Treee Hills colourway Tropical Storm. This is another yarn I've never used before and I like this one too. It's tightly spun & gives great definition and the colour speaks for it self.
I've joined a couple of sock kal's Southern Summer of Socks and Sockmania.
Oh...... and there is something seriously wrong with my computer, it was bad enough that we had no connection for 3 days and I was having serious withdrawal symptoms but now there seems to be some other problem with it . Kim was feeling better so he sort of fixed it for me but apparently it needs more work. It has taken me hours and hours to post this and as for the photo's I have no idea how they managed to shrink down to such a small jpg or even if they've worked out ok or not. So here's hoping.
Well that's all for now from me. Hope you all have a great week!
