Back when I planted a tomato seedling in a pot and a sunflower popped up next to it, I wanted them both so I left it that way and thought of it as a science experiment.

I’m so glad I did. I love looking out the window and seeing that sun-of-the-earth.

The sunflower is going to be done and gone long before the cherry tomato, which will take off from there.

Meantime, I just ran the ends in on the blanket. It came out of the blocking not only remarkably soft, as Rios is, but the gray shows how a good worsted-spun merino, where the fibers are combed to all run in the same direction, can have such a beautiful sheen to it.

How fun! And the blanket absolutely looks like a warm hug.

How nice for the plants to have a friend in the pot! And the blanket looks lovely.

Wow that blanket flew off the needles.
If you haven’t sent it off yet, can you post a photo of the flat finished project.
Looks great!
