It's called Rowanitis......I had it before, fought it off, but it's back big time LOL! When I first starter to knit seriously.......it was the cover of Rowan 11 that caught my eye.

Froggie Meanie & Tadpoles visit!

It's kind of a showy plant and wants to be admired by everyone.... I love it! I am knitting....but it's "stealth" knitting (I love that term) the kind of knitting that I can't talk about right now. Sorry.......but it should be done soon.
I'll have a new and different project (for me) to start in August. Happy Knitting
