Look what showed up on my doorstep this afternoon!
I wasn't intending to buy yarn this week, but then I was surfing Etsy on saw this very pretty yarn on sale:
Then I traipsed over to the Beyond Basic Knits' website and saw that a colorway I had coveted for a long time, Moorea, was being discontinued amd was on sale, so I had to grab one of these, too:
Now I just need to finish the socks (and Tara's armwarmers!) I have on the needles so I can get started on one of these lovelies! Does anyone have any pattern suggestions for them?
Onto the garden. Have you ever seen a cucumber dumpier than this one?
How about this one?
I'm not sure what is going one here. They are nice and straight until they are about the size the size of gherkins, and then they get round. Maybe it was a seed mix-up because this definitely not what the cucumber on the seed package looked like.
My Cheddar spaghetti squash is doing well. I was mentioning to one of my co-workers that I didn't know how to tell when it is ripe - it's a squash with a hard exterior. She said I should be able to tell with the colour - and it is about same colour now as it was when I bought it, so I might pick it this weekend.
And lastly, my Rose of Sharon:
Enjoy it while it lasts - it is getting drastically cut back after it finishes blooming.
