The redbud is blooming now (Lexi wants to know why it is called redbud when it's purple), and so are my flowering crabapple trees. The four mature ones are a variety that have russet leaves and pink blossems, so they are now brilliant pink. The small onw that friends gave me four years ago when I had my houe blessed has green eaves and white flowers, so it is calmer. The lilac and dogwood should both be blooming within a week.
I saw the Yarn Harlot (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee) last night in Brentwood TN (next to Nashville). That is her taking a picture of her current sock-in-progress. Some day I may learn to us my camera better.
I rode down with another knitter from Paducah - nice getting aquainted conversations on the way down and back. I got home at 12:30 am and went to bed immediately. I was so keyed-up by the evening that I was still awake at 2 o'clock. I guess I went to sleep shortly after that, and awoke about 9.
I bought Stephanie's new book, Things I learned from Knitting, and had her sign it. I've been reading some of it this morning. A review cited on the dust cover calls her 'the knitting world's Erma Bombeck.' I think that's very apt - I loved Erma Bombeck too.
