lots of green!!

 I finished the the baby ripple blanket the other day.. now all that is left is tucking in the ends. My daughter said she would do half.. hehe. Anyway I started a Brobee baby hoodie for Micah who is now 9 months old. He loves Yo Gabba Gabba and every time he watches the show he smiles and jumps up and down. When I did my gauge swatch on size 8 needle it was measuring perfect but when I started knitting the actual sweater I think I started knitting tighter and it was way off gauge. The fabric was too firm and the sweater was coming out way to small. So I ripped and started again yesterday with a larger needle and its way better. Softer and bigger.
 So much green in this post.. I just noticed that. Years ago I threw a lot of wild flower seeds on the side of my house where the yard is right next to this little reserve and now there is a giant border of little wild flowers. I walk the dog in that area and yesterday there were  butterflies, big ones, little ones and all color butterflies flying from flower to flower. I took a picture of the biggest one.

Florida is still very green and warm. but it is cooling off just a little so that you can hear birds again and see pretty butterflies.
