Good, Better and Best!

Good - My supplemental Koigu order arrived yesterday. I think that it’ll work if I introduce it slowly (alternating between the old and the new). Its way less intense than what I already had but it shouldn’t start appearing until the foot. This brings me to better…
new yarn for P sox
Better – I did a lot of knitting last night and NO FROGGING! I am now a row or 2 away from starting the heel and that’s how I know that I won’t need to break into the new yarn until the foot.

Best – Yesterday was report card day and my girls ROCKED! After being told by her teachers all year that Lindsey was not working up to her abilities she brought home a report yesterday that was brimming with A’s and B’s (and O’s for effort). I was soooo happy! Stinkerbelle also brought home a report card that showed great improvement but it’s different for her. She has been working through educational issues which I won’t go into right now and we can see the improvement without the report card. She’s still behind but any small measure of success is cause for huge celebration. Kudos all around!

IrisHere is a picture of the iris that is currently blooming in my front yard. As I examined it, Stinkerbelle noticed my peonies nearby which look ready to pop. I can’t wait. I also planted yet more bulbs – cannas and lilies and, yes, more irises. You can never have enough irises.

Never saw a blue iris b/f -- unusual and spectacular. I thought the name 'Stinkerbel" was of the past. For a good report card she deserves an up-grade in the nickname department. Superbelle? Strikerbelle? Sequinbelle?
