we have snowballs
That's the only name I know for this bush. A snowball bush. DH whacked this bush back to knee high last year. It was over the house and covering six feet of lawn at the time. It is now springing up and blooming again, but not anywhere near as obtrusively. No fragrance, and not much vase life, but I do love bringing boquets of snowballs into the house in May.
Last night's knitting. It's cotton. It's soft. It's a mindless stash-buster, using up some weaving yarn multi-plied. It took 90 casual minutes from start to finish. Instant gratification!!
(It's a washcloth, silly!)
More to come. How many ways can I knit a washcloth? This is a mitered square. Cast on 20, place marker, cast on 20 more. K2tog after you slip the marker on every row. And like magic, in 40 rows, it's done!
