Color first, no?
Look at the surprise this week at work…
This was a “rescue” and after a year or so it has flowered. Must like the window it sits in… but on the day it flowered, I put it right in the middle of my office so I could see it from my desk! The reproductive parts look so interesting!

That second photo is wicked fuzzy… sorry! I am almost done w/ the body, and then on to the sleeves.
mushroom madness continues
Look what DH brought home from a day in the woods…
Two more big Phaeolus! I might over-dye the yarn I did the other day. He made some comment that I should dry them so they don’t mold, and to not dissuade him from getting me more, I’ve chopped it up and spread it out on a cookie sheet that I put in my car.
I have some ideas about collecting enough of this and that mushroom and doing a real experiment.
But before that I am thinking to overdye some grey wool with koolaid for Norma’s red scarf project… pics when I have them.
I skyped this morning with a young woman in Australia. What a blast! She’s from Barcelona and misses speaking in Spanish, and I want to practice because I forget so much. It worked really well (once I figured out how to get my microphone switched to the webcam)… some Spanish, some English, some Spanglish. I found her in Ravelry, in a Spanish speaking knitter’s group. We’ll do it again, maybe next weekend.
