In Gardening News:
The good news is the rhododendron and the bleeding heart did not freeze that night I was worried that they would!:
I just love the bleeding hearts -- one of those totally-amazing-how-did-nature-do-that kind of plants.
And our peonies are starting right in front of our dying daffodils:
In Knitting News:
It was a close one:
Speaking of weaving in ends.... look at all these ends!!!:
I powered through, wove in all the ends, blocked it, AND PUT THE BUTTON ON! Can you believe I actually put the button on right away? I can't.
I also cast on a new project (yes, without working on one of my other works-in-progress --- that truly is next) for a summer class, the Clapotis:
Oops, and I forgot that i DID cast on yet another new project, but it's a secret project that I can't show until later.... don't you hate that suspense?
In Book News:
I still plugging away at The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It's now holding my attention since it's gotten a little more exciting but it's not calling to me during the times I can't read it. I'm not trying to decide if I should knit or read. I'm knitting and when my hands get tired from knitting, then I'm reading it. This will probably be the totality of my review of this book -- except to tell you when I'm done and I can finally get to the third Hunger Games book.
How about a quote of the day?:
