Do you call them Amaryllis Belladonna or Surprise Lilies or (my favorite) Naked Ladies? One of my remaining legacies from Mrs. Varesco is in bloom again. They've survived being moved and mistreated multiple times as we've worked on the back yard. I love their rich perfume and robustness when all else is wilted or dormant during these waning days of our seasonal summer drought.
Cinxia is coming along. I modified the pattern to have raglan sleeve shaping and I think it looks good. Faithful readers may recall that I hand-dyed the yarn for this one-of-a-kind garment. My camera skills do not do this yarn justice. It is a beautiful mix of coral and salmon with burts of orange and red. Well... I don't know if I have enough yarn to finish.
