Check this out! My niece gave me this giant flower. It is the craziest thing ever.
It's a giant cockscomb. That is ONE flower. ONE! Look at that stem! It is bigger than my hand. The top is fuzzy and slightly "brainish" looking. Pretty cool huh?
In the not-so-cool category, I finished my stole, but I think I will have to knit the entire thing again. I think I chose the wrong yarn for it. I blocked it out and it is gorgeous, but it doesn't retain it's shape. There is some elastic in it, which would be wonderful for other projects, but not for this one. I will probably do it again in a wool yarn.
I really love the looks of it, so I will definitely redo it if I can't use this one.
Well, we are off today for another week of camping at the beach. Last vacation of the summer....ahhhhh.
