Roses are rosy-red, knitting is too

imgp7604imgp7584I think I see now why my rose-colored yarn had already gradually migrated over to my knitting perch and thus was near the front door when I had no shawl project and had to grab something, anything, on my way to taking Richard to the ER on Monday. I didn’t even see it till today, but then suddenly it was so obvious. The climbing roses along our front walkway.  The color. The pattern I decided on after we got there. Taking the safety of home with me and putting it forward into the unknown.

Lovely, as always! You are so in tune with what you should do and who you should be. I aspire to be as in tune with these things as you are. . .

A rose color for a rose pattern. Figures.

A young businessman had just started his own firm. He had just rented a beautiful office and had it furnished with antiques.

He saw a man come into the outer office. Wishing to appear the hot shot, the businessman picked up the phone and started to pretend he had a big deal working. He threw huge figures around and made giant commitments.

Finally he hung up and asked the visitor, “Can I help you?”

“Yeah, I”ve come to activate your phone lines.”

It’s interesting how often, when we do something “for no reason”, there’s a reason there somewhere. What a lovely color!

I love the color. And the new project looks wonderful. I wish I was more proficient in lace.

I’m so glad Richard is now doing well. The ER is scary whether you’re the sick person or the accompanying one. Happy Mother’s Day!

Definitely. I can see how that ended up being in your knitting bag!

I discovered in my garden a ROSE BUSH growing.
I had dug up my roses to send with a friend moving away, as I can no longer garden as I wish to.
BUT there is a set of leaves coming up from where my Sutter’s Gold once bloomed. Likely the stock plant for the graft, but it will be interesting to see what develops :-}

I can’t think of any knitting better than the color of that yarn with that pattern. Beautiful!

The doctor called me once, years ago. “If you want to see your mother again, you’d better come this weekend.”

I couldn’t go. My brother Chris did. Mom had a tube down her throat. She couldn’t talk. She wanted to say something. They brought her a piece of paper and a pen. “Candy.” Candy?! What on earth?

Had her grandchildren received the candy she sent them for Christmas?

Recently I took a notion to knit a 2-year-old great-niece a dress. Why on earth? Don’t like this yarn!

But on Mother’s Day I found myself knitting for my mother’s great-grand-daughter. Mom, a knitter, would have been pleased.

Oh. I did go visit Mom the weekend after her supposed last one. I was greeted with, “Take me home!”

Oh, my, how lovely!

Sorry to hear that Richard was under the weather. I hope he’s feeling back to normal.
