Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbor's Yarn



My neighbor Abby wants to start to knit socks. She brought over her yarn to show to me. It is gorgeous. I couldn't write the name of the label down while she was here. I promptly forgot it. Now my last chance yarn is even less appealing. I've told it if it lets me turn the heel nicely tonight, I'll keep at it. But there is new sock yarn hunting going on here at our house.

I loved this particular flower when Cricket and I walked by it. I saw it the other day. I brought the camera all the way back to the flower today to show it to you. Isn't it neat? So very pale and yet stunning. I think a fairy must live in there when the leaves curl together...




I talk more in the comments!

You are so right! That is a fairy flower if I've ever seen one. Such a pretty color, too!

Thank you for the fairy flower gift! I really needed to see that photo. On Mother's Day when all my men trimmed trees and prepared the yard for Summer they cut down the thicket behind our back fence where such flowers and fairies lived. They were so very proud of the job they did I had to praise them. Later I had a good cry over it!
