What is madness? This is:
As a newbie to cables, this pattern has been a little bit of a challenge. Its not really that hard, but it is time consuming. In fact, at this rate, I’m quite certain that I will be working on these for the rest of my life. They are gorgeous though.
The baby surprise jacket is coming along great.
I’ve made it through all the decreases and I’m about to start on the increases. I love the way the yarn looks in this pattern.
Mason is doing good. Mason is the previously un-named kitten. He has come out of his shell so much just in the 3 weeks we’ve had him. He now runs all over the house, causing all sorts of mayhem along the way. When he isn’t running around the house and creating chaos, he’s a real bed bug. I’ve really enjoyed watching his development, he gets stronger and bigger everyday. Like all little boys, he desperately wants to play with the big kids, in this case, the big kids being our other cats. He chases them all over the house. They are warming up to him. Like all big sisters, they play with their annoying little brother, but the moment you catch them doing it, they stop and are suddenly to cool to play with him. We haven’t caught them snuggling yet, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be long.
Everything is going great with the baby. Just like Mason, he’s growing bigger and stronger everyday. He kicks and squirms a lot, so I think he’s going to be just like his daddy. Mike is always moving, in fact, I think it’s physically impossible for him to sit still.
I ordered a couple of new orchids. Its been forever since I’ve bought new orchids, mostly because I have no space, but I’ve wanted these two for a while. They don’t have flowers on them, so I will link you to other pictures of what they will look like.
Masdevallia infracta purple
I’m fairly certain that the Dracula has two flower spikes on it. They are absolutely tiny too. I knew it was a miniature species, but these are really tiny spikes. I didn’t notice them when I first unpacked them. Hopefully all will go well, and I will get to see flowers on it soon. It looks like the Masdevallia has recently bloomed, which is about right because it has a Spring to Summer blooming season, so it will probably be a year before I get to see that one bloom. But that’s just part of growing orchids.
