Hey! Posts are up! The pictures are a strange size…kinda big…but they’re up and I’m not going to fix them right now. lol

Oh, my new shawl:
Sleeves by Martina Behm using Zauberball Starke 6 in Charisma

Spring has sprung! Allergies are in full throttle! Yesterday I was in Santa Fe for work and my folks came with me (another perk of my job). We went to The Pantry afterwards, and hey! Look over there there’s a yarn store I love be right back. And Charisma was in my purse. ;-) I might need another ball for this sleeves scarf hybrid, but that’s cool. It knits like a dream-a little smooshy, bright colors, softish. I even cleared out another 10 square feet or so of the office. Whew!

I digress. Spring is working it’s magic everywhere, look at our plant! That’s a flower. It has never bloomed before and my hubs has had this for years. Like, yeeeeaaaarrrrs. The only thing I can think of is I’m watering the few plants I have once a week. I put it in my reminders on Remember The Milk and now everything is growing and blooming! woohoo!wpid-wp-1426355008737.jpeg

Any ideas what kind of plant this is? We don’t know. Huh. Can’t get over that flower.

Sounds silly, perhaps, but remember this is NM, and I can’t make plants grow very well…maybe now I can! I have a venus fly trap I’m hoping will come back to life, too. The instructions say it is dormant during cold weather, so I’ll mist it and give it sun and see what happens. How very Frankenstein…rise…RISE!

:-D off to get ready for lunch and errands. Freddy’s is calling and this is a great day for running around (and sneezing).

P.S. Check out my pattern pages on ravelry for more progress pics and a couple finished things. Here’s the promised Finished Thing from last week, the 22 Degrees shawl in Fiera Mint Julep:

I underestimated how much yarn I had and bound off a little early, so I just single crocheted along the top until I ran out of yarn. :-) I added a little scallop/shell in the middle for fun. It’s so warm and squishy and perfect for cold mornings!
