OT: what is it about those cherry blossoms?

This morning, bright and early, I drove the Best Beloved down to the surgeon's office where he got his plaster cast removed (tra la!) and a removable pneumatic cast put on. His right leg now looks like something out of Star Wars. Since we were in downtown DC, we celebrated this by driving down to see the cherry blossoms.

Now, I am not really all that romantic, but as we turned towards the Tidal Basin, the blue sky reflecting in the water which is rimmed as far as the eye can see by the flowering cherry trees, my eyes just brimmed. So amazing. Clear blue water, cloudless blue sky, pink blossoms. It's really quite something. Almost like a dream world.

My best to all of you!

More socks!

Latest off the needles is a pair of socks in merino/cashmere/nylon hand-dyed in an almost solid amethyst. I'm sorry that I didn't knit a design in this yarn.

UFO's and WIP's

There is no exact line between a UFO and a WIP for me; indeed, to some extent the only UFO's I will admit to are ripples in the frogged pond.

Though I will admit that sometimes I have ripped out a project because I used up the yarn for that particular project on something else. whoops!

(Speaking of which - what did I do with that crochet afghan I started 8 years ago?)

I'm feeling good today because I picked up and knit on one project that has been sitting in my car as an "emergency knitting project" since August. If I whittle down the number of projects currently on the needle I can treat myself to an orgy of starting new projects.
