fragile strength

My Macro Monday offering this week is a tiny love-in-a-mist flower determined to exist this late in the season... with a fragile strength and in a ghostly form (as it's pure blue colour has been muted)


...and some robust orangey-red rose-hips

  5. What makes yarn specifically sock yarn, I wonder. I have knit a pair of sox, she added proudly. One is a bit bigger than the other, I must confess. But they are lacy and I got lost. :-)
    I used Rowan Silk 'n Wool. Bright red. Which was a mistake.
    Don't hips make gorgeous pictures.
    Halfway puts you on the Isle of Wight, no?
