Freak Leaf, Pineapple Plant Gifting and Sweater

Category: Miscellaneous | Posted: Sat Oct 28, 2017 5:42 pm

I've finally cut that freakishly long/tall leaf from my Snake Plant. Now that it is separated from the parent plant, I'm going to cut it up, dip it in rooting hormone, pot it all, and hope for the best.



I am also giving one of the Pineapple plant babies away. The larger they get, the more I realize that I can only sustain one. So, one is going to one of the secretaries at one of the doctor's offices I go to regularly. I get the feeling that she'll not take care of it the way I have and I'm bracing myself for being a witness to this. So, we'll see.



In the non-plant news, I am making a sweater. It is a pattern called the Flax Sweater by a knitting duo called Tin Can Knits. The working name I'm giving my variation is "Mir Ist Kalt" due to my wanting to practice German as well as it being super cold in this house due to having to deal with the dueling banjos of the air conditioner during the Summer months when I first conceived of making this sweater. Two people were vying to make it as cold as humanly possible in this house without consulting with the third person, that person being me.

It is a top-down Raglan, made with TARDIS blue yarn. The yarn I'm using is Knit Picks - Wool of the Andes Worsted in the colorway Winter Night. Thus far, I have knit enough to where I am in the round and knitting the body of the sweater. I have yet to try anything on yet.


About the only other thing happening during this Halloween-mas is a sudden fruit bonanza on my Sweet Pickle Organic Pepper plant. Meh.


I hope you're all having a fantastic year thus far. Enjoy yourselves. :)
