Appleblossom amaryllisAfter posting about Bigfoot’s name the other day, I grabbed some Lisa Souza’s baby alpaca/silk in the Berry Poppins colorway and cast on. It has been flying off the needles. I don’t know why, I don’t know who it’s supposed to be for, but there’s this great sense of anticipation that feels like I’m about to find out, and that I have to have it ready for when I do.

Curious. And I would show it to you, too, (it’s about 14″ long so far), except my computer is dissing my camera card. So here’s a close-up of an Appleblossom amaryllis that I shot yesterday.

My amaryllis is all long strappy leaves.
It is possible it won;t bloom this year, which will make next year’s bloom all the more exciting :-}

A new knit always brings o anticipation. And waiting for it to explain itself makes it more exciting!
