It was supposed to be the "canvas" for embroidery, but I just couldn't bear to put any kind of stitching on the cables. The heel on this sock was really unique as well; it's created by a series of yarn overs that are then decreased. One of these days I'll start on sock #2.
Even though it's been kind of chilly here today, our yard is looking very springlike. The flowering plum is blossoming as are lots of pretty daffodils.
It was spring inside our house, too. When we got home last week, the minute we walked in the door, we smelled this almost sickeningly sweet smell but couldn't find the source for a couple of days. After we'd almost given up, DH found it. The corn plant had a hidden stalk of flowers behind the canary island pine. I cut it off, Dick took a photo, and we put it outside!
Still haven't posted about our trip, but I will soon. Stay tuned.
