This delightful little bloom [it is a zinnia, Matthew just told me] is in our backyard right now. This is why nature is all good and stuff. What a pretty name! If I had a daughter, I'd name her Zinnia. Look at the wicked cool little yellow stars!! Look at that color!! If you had a sweater that color, it would make you happy every time you wore it.

Now, perhaps you were thinking that for someone who is very bitter about baseball, there were a lot of Phillies-related posts recently and hardly anything knitter-y or spinner-y. Well, here, in an attempt to wean myself off of all-baseball posts, is a picture of my latest spinning/plying effort - on top of my scorecard from the game! Could I have squeezed any more yarn on that poor spindle? It's about 75 yards, which means I am increasing my pioneer-woman patience and also that I'm getting close to a hat/mitten set, I think, which will be trippy to knit up!

Dear Divine One,
Yes indeedy, a sweater that color would be way yummy! Shall I tell you when my b'day is?!
Love it that you are spindling/spinning. Do remember that we must connect for a Purlewe fiber night.
