Here are some socks I started on the weekend - sock yarn from the lovely Cristi. I'm knitting them on 9" Hiya Hiya circulars - and let me tell you, you need nimble fingers for this. I'm pleased with the progress - this represents about 90 minutes of effort:
And here is my nigh-finished baby sweater. The knitting itself is finished - but I need to make my way to JoAnn's to pick up a zipper. The unsuspecting expectant mommy told me this morning she has 6 weeks to go, so I should have this done in time. I am making her the 9 month size - who really needs a cardigan when you have a summer baby?
Willow has been in a dress-up mood of late. Yesterday she was a cowgirl. Yeah... she is wearing her winter boots (that we never really had an opportunity to wear this past winter). I think I need to get her some real cowgirl boots.
She thinks that would be a great idea:
I haven't given you a picture of Lucky recently - here he is in his favourite room, the sunroom. We open up the windows and he sits on our side of the screen and cooes to all the birdies outside.
I wanted to show off my fledgling garden to Bezzie - I think she may be a bit ahead of me here. First row from left to right: Lemon squash, Royal Purple basil, Topiary basil. The left column of mini-pots are Sweet basil, the middle column snap peas, and the rightmost column is acorn squash. The small plant with the yellow leaves is a miniature watermelon.
I thought the mini-pots were empty until I took the picture above and noticed that the acorn squash is coming up!
And here I have 3 tomato plants (1 Early Girl, 1 Lemon Boy, 1 Husky Cherry), 3 bell pepper plants (red, yellow, and chocolate), 4 pots of scallions (inspired by Bezzie's efforts last year), 1 Japanese eggplant, 1 Cilantro, some mini basil, and Willow's Zinnia plants.
Now that the weather has warmed up I hope to get the rest of these in the garden (I planted my 7 cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage plants last week) this weekend. Wish me luck!
