Hey - in the group I'm in we are doing Sunday Morning Stitch Witch. We are trying out a new stitch that we can use elsewhere, but in the meanwhile making an afghan with it. Kim is helping to devise the stitches each week and doing a bang up job.
At first I was more interested in doing textured stitches as I love the look and feel of them. However, it has progressed into multi-colored stitches, which is fine with me! You can pick and choose your stitches, should you want, to get a textured look or a bright happy multi look. All depends on your mood.
I have finished more of the Brick and Mortar rows, but for some reason the photos came up blank. I will have to go back and try taking more photos and post them later.
So no one told me what the cabbage looking plant could be. I haven't looked it up yet, as thought I'd get some good info here! Rats.
I found out the name of another plant that I thought was a Hydrangea. Turns out it is a Black Lace Alderberry. Stunning! I love the lace cap pink flowers against the black-purple lacy leaves...just don't look at the hose in the background! It does give you a perspective, though, of the large leaves and flower heads.
So - now I want to have a contest...have to generate some fun, don't I? I have a book that is called "50 Knit & Crochet Accessories: Go from beginner to expert with easy bags, mittens, socks and hats"
If you would like this book, please note in your post to this thread, put in a guess as to the plant in the previous post, and then I will put all the names in a box, shake it up and pull out a winner! I will also take the answers and figure out who is correct and that person will get a smaller, different prize. Hopefully you are on Ravelry and can PM me your address should I need it!
