Sunday 13th June, Augusta Wrap Ta-Dah!!!!!!!!

Here it is!!!!!!!!!
The Augusta Mobius Wrap is complete.
I'm really loving this and I'm feeling right glam wearing it.
I blocked it to make the points ~ I'm not sure how long they'll last.
The pattern was in Let's Knit! May ~ one ball of Regia Hand Dye Effect sock yarn.
Mr Clicky Needles dragged me out yesterday to see this field of poppies.
There are lots of fields over the Cotswolds looking like this at the moment.
He had seen it from the main road and they looked fabby but to take a (safe) photo we had to turn off and go up a little country lane and this picture involved me scrambling up a stinging nettle bank in flip flops so this is the best I could do!
It was nice to get out actually because when I went to hang out the washing yesterday there was a HORRIBLE smell. My immediate thought that there was a dead something in the garden and spent quite some time looking for the unfortunate dead thing.
Then it dawned on me.
The Stinky Plant was flowering.
This has always been known as The Stinky Plant in our household ~ it's actually a Dragon Arum. The only trouble with it is that it stinks like rotting fish and was almost making me gag. It was covered with flies which it needs for pollination. It's in the same family as the Titan Arum which usually grow in rainforests. Luckily the smell has gone today ~ and in a few days time the flower will go too. I love the colour just not the smell!
Last piccy ~ the evening sunset last night.
I've not decided on the new project yet ~ so it'll be the socks which are coming along nicely and the ripple blankie which I'm still enjoying ~ but I need to be a bit more disciplined doing or it'll be going on forever!
Hope you have a good week.

  1. Oohh!! Your wrap is gorgeous, and only one skein! Love the poppies too.

  2. Your Mobius wrap is stunning! The colours are so beautiful. Love it! I'm not so sure that I'd be giving up space in my garden for such a smelly plant!


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
Please leave a comment ~ I do appreciate them.
