Eye Candy

I love this photo I took of some allium in my front yard. Click to make it bigger, and look at the right edge of the photo, just above the center. You’ll see a little bee coming in for a landing.

And how about some knitting stuff, too?

This is my start on Eileen, from “No Sheep for You”. I’m making it with Garnstudio Bomull-lin, a cotton and linen blend. The front is plain stockinette, but is hemmed at the bottom. The back doesn’t have any kind of hem or edging, so I hope rolling won’t be a problem. I’m wondering if I should have knitted a few rows of garter stitch first. Well, we’ll see. I don’t see any complaints on other people’s projects about the back edge rolling.

    Eileen looks really pretty. I don’t remember it from the book, but it’s been awhile since I looked at it. Strange how I can flip through a book and not be impressed by a single pattern…until I run across someone else making a project from it.
