This is the Cereus plant bloom.  You can see how it got the common name of Dutchman's Pipe.
The stem and flower are about 10-12" in size. 
The bloom itself is about 5". 
What an amazing flower to behold!  What a creative Creator! 
I am creating a pretty cool pattern but the little bit of ribbing does nothing to stop the 'curl' of the stockinette.  I will have to block it to near death but I love the play of colors!
One repeat done, on to the next!


  1. I'm guessing there is someone along University Blvd. that has a night-blooming Cereus. You can smell the wonderful fragrance all the way out in the road. But, I've only had the pleasure maybe 3 or 4 times in 30 years.

    Love the color blend on your knitting.

  2. Wow....that is a crazy blossom. Alien species planted here by moon men?

  3. Glad you didn't miss it this time! :)


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Another Pair!

The colors look like candy stripes- I thought of the old Fruit Stripes gum  but my daughter said it reminded her of the candy Sprees....
