the most beautiful shades of purple dyed into a yarn. Warm soft lavenders reminiscent of hydrangeas. These soft fibers had started their knitted life as an Achillea sock only to come out large enough to fit a small elephant. This week they have been frogged. Those Achillea socks are back on the needles with fewer stitches and now more closely resemble human size.

crazy wild bold colors swirled together in a skein of sock yarn. Green, yellow, purple and brown meld in an Easter basket flurry of color. These too have been cast-on for a pair of Los Monos Locos. I am hoping to use most of the skein on these. They will be my crazy April egg-hunting socks.

a pile of books topped with an innocuous looking magazine. The magazine has been sporadically read. It is good. Some parts may not be applicable to me, but the feeling is true to my heart. It is Taproot, and my earlier worries were too harsh. It is good. A bit of Mother Earth News for the romantic. I haven't finished it, and I admit to reading it out of order (I just wasn't sure I could love an article about soil. I live in a world of hard, caliche soil not black loamy stuff). I do like it though. I am eager to see how it evolves. Also on my reading pile is The Distant Hours by Kate Morton. I am enjoying this read quite a bit. I am only around page 100, so no real insight yet. I am glad to have found it via our weekly Yarn Alongs.

Why must you imagine? Well, my laptop is back in repair. The good news is that Apple would like to just give me a new one. The bad news is that it will take 5-7 days and my data will be lost. Fortunately after the last incident Dave backed up all the photos. Not so much on the documents, but I think most were in Dropbox. All should be fine. In the interim you must use your imagination, visualizing all the fun and craziness that we call home.
