Flower Power

Hey look! Knitting! I got tired of the shawl and wanted to start something from Knitting Nature. I'm knitting the Turbulence U-Neck Pullover using Softwist (the same yarn as in the pattern) in a rich blue shade. This is such a quick knit in my mind since its on big needles (okay, call me psycho, but a US6 is big for me!). I have the back done and just started the front last night.

As you can see from the pictures, Kali apparently likes Knitting Nature too!




This past week, I've been a bit obsessed with flowers. I LOVE them. All of them. Here are some pictures I took while in Ireland of the flowers we came across. You'll notice the fuschia and the lilies.. they were everywhere in the southwest!

Such gorgeous flowers! Why are you disturbing Kali? :) I still can't decide what pattern to use for Watermelon Stripe-I got the yarn wound.
