Orchid was last week’s color, and I was kind of surprised to find it on the first day, right in my apartment. The yarn and granny squares shot is one of my favorites in a while. Plus, the granny squares are a current obsession anyway. Orchids always make me think of the prom, because I had a black and white dress and was totally set on having red flowers for my corsage… until my date informed me he’d gotten a dark green vest. Hopes of matching and contrasty goodness dashed! Until I saw the corsage he got me… gorgeous, unique, stunning orchids from Chinatown. Sure showed me. I don’t know if I have a photo, but those were the prettiest orchids ever.
