First green of spring in the apple tree

Awhile ago, I bought one skein of Misti baby suri alpaca/silk, knowing that was emphatically not my shade of green, but somehow, it just leaped into my hands anyway. Yesterday, the first day of spring, it leaped onto my needles immediately after the red one and danced up and down, going, me! Me! Maybe it was how the color matched the new leaves outside. I have learned to just go with it, that I will find out soon enough why I needed to have a project in exactly that color ready to go, for… ? Part of the fun is in the anticipation, waiting for the rest of the story to come to be. Right now, I don’t have a clue. Who are you out there that this demanded to be knitted for, that the yarn wouldn’t let me be till I did?

The kid looks at the photo. “You were tall enough to take that?”

John, it’s the APPLE TREE. (As in, it’s *short* there.) Come ON!!

Kids. They are so good at finding the perfect way to razz their parents. Next time I’ll stand on his shoulders to snap it (oh, dear, sweetie, I’m so sorry. Your shoulder surgery? Dang. I forgot!)
