Good Morning! Happy Wednesday!
If it's Wednesday, that means it must be Unraveled Wednesday. Joining in with Kat and others to talk about what we are making and reading (though in my case, once again the books I've started are not holding my attention...).
First of all though, thank you Val and Kym for identifying our mystery plant. As soon as I showed Fletch the link you had provided Val, he remembered the name! And Kym, you are correct, there is a faint almost cinnamon scent from the blooms. Very nice. I cut one small piece of it yesterday along with some lily of the valley and a piece of another plant (once again, the name escapes me) and I have them in a little bud vase on the kitchen windowsill over our sink. The scent from the lily of the valley is so strong!
I did make it into the office yesterday and ended up staying much longer than I anticipated! It was like old home day or something. My boss Bill had come in, my other boss Bruce was in (my other boss, Kevin, lives in Atlanta, so he was not in!). A few people from accounting; Dan (our CFO) and Heather (she comes in Tuesdays and Thursdays to go through the mail and FedEx and UPS packages). So, there was a lot of catching up to do with people and it was nice to see them all.
When I first was walking up to the office I heard a noice and looked up and one of the hawks was perched on the edge of the nest and squawking away! Really, loudly. I hoped to see little baby beaks poking over the edge of something, but I didn't. What a mess though! The entranceway to the building is covered in bird shit and sticks that have been dropped from the nest. Bruce said the hawk flew at him when he came into the building!!
On to the making! Tutti Fruitty sock #2 is now more than halfway down the leg and moving right along.
This is just such a cheerful piece to knit!
Granny square #12 was completed last night. Here the the most recent 3 I've made.
Each square is 9 rounds and typically I use 3 different yarns. The latest square though (the one in the back with the pink center) is from one little ball of yarn. I just decided to keep going since the colors kept changing. I still have a ton of leftover scraps from knitting socks and shawls, so there are still plenty of squares to be made. It's fun to just stick my hand into the pile of bits and bobs and see what I pull out and then start crocheting.
One last picture for the day. Cozy Tyg - curled up tight (it really got chilly), covering his eyes and also holding his tail down (his tail is almost constantly moving back & forth). So cute.
He is out of the box and onto the chair at the head of the table!
Hoping your week is going well. Be sure to visit Kat's blog to see what she and others are doing.
