What was left!

This is the tiny leftover ball of ombre fingering yarn that makes up one of 2 strands of the multicolor row in Blanket 2.

It is definite that both my amaryllis bulbs will have two stalks, which is fabulous.  The taller plant in the photo below is called Red Lion and came from Sam’s Club.  I started it in early December, around the 8th.  It should have solid red blooms.  The second, shorter plant is called Minerva, and was a Christmas gift from my dear brother and sister-in-law.  Minerva is a much bigger bulb than Red Lion, but both are larger than any bulbs I have saved from years past.

The blooms are still several weeks away.  After these have bloomed I will start some caladium bulbs, to give some of those plants a kick start for the summer.

There is another WIP in the basket, which is more boyish than BB#1.  I don’t think there will be any 2 in this series alike, because it is too much fun to goof around with color combinations.  Hm.  Maybe the white-balance feature gave this photo too much of a blue cast.

Today is John’s birthday.  Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!  I lit a couple of candles at church tonight, and one was for you.

I will have a story for you tomorrow about Verizon and Comcast.  I hope it ends happily for them.  Ciao!

Baby Blanket #1

This is the first Finished Object of the year, Number 1 in the Baby Blanket series.  Since this one is for a girl, it is pink and white with a varigated row that includes pastel blue, green, yellow and pink.

This blanket meets the approval of Odin, who was kind enough to rouse himself from his 8th nap of the day to sit on it.

Odin approves.

Odin approves.

Blanket # 2 was started on Saturday afternoon.
