Recovery

Look what arrived at the door yesterday!

Thanks mom and dad! These made me very happy — and there are tulips! I love tulips, especially right now, when the flowers are still not up but the world is definitely turning towards spring.

I’m getting close to finishing the first aran sleeve, so maybe I’ll have a picture tomorrow. Instead, today, I thought I’d show you a project I knit a year or two ago — a vest for Mark. I’ve just got around to taking a picture of it for my FO’s gallery, so here it is:

And a close-up of the colour pattern is here. As the weather gets warmer we’re getting into vest weather, at least for Mark. I enjoy knitting vests, since they eliminate the dreaded sleeve boredom!

Thanks for all the congratulations and kind words, everyone! This is just such a happy, supportive community! I’m privileged to be a part of it.

That’s pretty nice, actually. Bravo.

So that’s great to see the actual bouquet! So often you send flowers and have no idea if they were ugly little everlastings and a few straggly mums, or what. Glad you liked them. Yay for digital cameras.

Very pretty flowers!

I agree with you re vests. No sleeves!
