I just like that phrase. It's a botanical term referring to the newly growing cells at the tip of a plant. Kindof a neat phrase...full of potential for metaphors!
So my own apical meristem is knitting :) And crochet. Always new ideas are crowding their way into that location of my brain, pushing to burst forth into a new branch. It's related to what I meant in yesterday's post--how there are so many things I want to do (not many of them original, sadly). But I think that, in the botanical world there is more organization to the new growth than there is in my 'yarn-branch meristem!' I sometimes feel like all those great ideas I see on Ravelry are swimming randomly around in my brain, fighting for attention! It's a kind of ADD, and I have the information age to thank for it!
Enough analyzing...here's an FO pic
this is somewhat better than the photo of me wearing it! It is the [What] Jamaican Bag I finished about a month ago. Sorry it took so long to post!
Isn't it cute, posing among the bleeding hearts and snow-in-summer?! I really like it. Right now it is housing my First Socks, and I brought them both to work and showed the girls I work with (who, I should mention, are by now utterly resigned to the fact that I will show them my yarny creations, in spite of the fact that THEY DON'T KNIT!!!) But they are very polite about it :)
