Middles, and a Beginning
I’m at that frustrating point with all my knitting: the middle. My projects are going just fine but they’re all at about the same stage, and if you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you know how I feel about middles.
Totally Autumn is, according to the instructions, nearing its end. It’s shorter than I’d like, however, so I’m going to do some additional repeats of the pattern. That means it’s in the middle.
My Elegance sock is almost to the toe decreases–but not quite. Middle.
Neither of my other socks has progressed at all, so I’m not taking pictures of them.
This is something to get excited about:
My Albuca Spiralis has sent up a shoot! I’m beside myself. (The M.E. will testify to this.) At one point last spring, I was positive I’d killed it. But the tricky little Spiralis is a winter grower. It’s dormant all summer, no foliage, nothing but a tiny brown bulb in a cup of dry pebbles. You can’t water it until it starts growing again.
You can see how it looked while dormant in this picture:
(Click on the picture to make it bigger or you’ll never find the plant.) The Albuca Spiralis is in the cup on the right. On the left is my Tick Plant, which went dormant about the same time.
I’ve moved them both from my office to the sunniest window in the house. The more hot sun the Spiralis gets, the more its leaves will curl. And the Tick Plant? It’s an extremely cute, very rare plant and I hope it makes an appearance soon.
