In other news, I am hoping to finish the MSU hat tonight - or, if I am realistic about it, tomorrow. Then all of my effort will be put into finishing the purple sock and the merino scarf so I can start work the Noro scarf and work on the other green sock.
Congrats are in order for the sister-in-law on her new purchase: a new house way out in Portland. Sorry, K - had to italicize that for your mother. Oh, and by the way, I lied. The package went out today (post office was closed for the first attempt at mailing) so you should get it by end of week. I think. And.... the soon-to-be SIL picked out a wedding dress which I will post a picture of at a later date (must speak with her to see if it would be okay or if it is a surprise....)
One more thing:
Mystery solved. I know you have all been checking my blog every day in the hopes that this flower would be identified. Today is your lucky day -- drumroll... it is a passion flower. Hopefully you will all sleep better tonight now that you know. :)
