More of the Paton Classic Merino wool in Royal Purple. I faked my own pattern. Simple once you've made Fetching a few hundred times. *L*
I used US 7 DPNs and a three by one rib on 32 lonely little stitches.
Yes, I know.
I made the second one while watching Much Ado About Nothing. I'm not sure why, but I love that movie. Something about happy endings, I guess.
Must be PMS time again.
Okay, not really.
It is the first paperwhite bulb to bloom this year. They are narcissus tazetta and/or daffodils. They mean spring to me. We're not done with winter yet, not by a long shot, but they are a wonderful yearly reminder that the green things are coming and Mother Nature's rebirth is on it's way.
Oh, and they are very easy to force in a vase in the house. Lots of fun for kids of all ages. :D
In other news, if you ever wonder what's a better purchase... a crock pot or a rice cooker, FFS get the crock pot! Most people don't eat enough rice to need a rice cooker... and certainly not a SIXTEEN CUP rice cooker.
(I totally blame his mother for this.)
