Lookie what I spied outside...a little dragonfly flying around. It was a little hard getting a picture of a flying little bug, but the chase was fun. It kept flying high and hiding behind the leaves but I succeeded in taking a few blurry pics of the flying purple/blueish beauty.
Another purple beauty to share...a new sock yarn for my collection, a ScoutJ handpainted original. I can hardly wait to try it out--I am thinking a simple sock to allow the beauty of the yarn to shine! Scout has terrific service! She even sent a wonderfully scented incense stick--which is now housed inside the little footstool with all my current projects.
Purple projects all around--a little fishy to help in practicing increasing/decreasing on knitting looms. The loom holds the purple blob--a never ending project that after many days of procrastination has finally been bound off and it is currently drying...something good about this heat wave, anything felted dries up in one day flat!
Some of you asked me about the socks on yesterday's post--the picture is just a little peek to one of the projects I have been working for the "big project"....shhhh, it's a secret, don't tell anyone you saw the picture.
Speaking of yesterday's pictures, do you remember the "interesting- looking-speciment"...well, my darlin' hubby informed me today (after hearing me nag about the "ugly" plant with the huge buds that don't flower) that the interesting-specimen actually doesn't give flowers. The buds are not buds for flowers, they are the flowers...hmmm. Apparently, the specimen is called a "CatTail." I don't know where it got its name as it doesn't look like any cattail I have ever seen...I don't know. I don't think it is a cattail...at least it doesn't look like the cattails pictured all over google. Whatever it is, I will keep an eye on it...cattail, dogtail, fishtail, whatever it is, we will wait and see...patiently....sighh.
