Near the Bloomfield Post Office, these flowers caught my eye. I had just mailed a package to my DIL in Ohio. I told the clerk I was mailing the hat I had just finished knitting. “Did you ever read The Knitting Circle.” she asked. “Never heard of it”, I replied . She stepped back and reached under the different envelopes and pulled out the book.(author Ann Hood) I asked, “Do you knit?” “No. But reading this book makes me want to”
I told her about Natural Stitches Knitting Store in East Liberty by Staples and Trader Joe’s, the little strip mall where Phar-Mor used to be.
They’ll be there and ready for spring!! Just need some sun to dry them. All purpose sunflowers! I was actually just thinking that it would be nice when all of the red tulip bulbs that we planted bloom in the spring. The sunflowers say, “Why wait?” I know – I should enjoy the beautiful winter, and stop thinking about spring!!!
