|Blueberry bushes and an artichoke|
Two weeks ago, some dear friends who garden for a living brought me two beautiful blueberry bushes, and those guys needed to go in the ground today! So, I plowed up the garden I'd made three years ago, tilled it four times, added garden soil and tilled it again. I bought six different tomato plants and some peppers, and put them in the ground, too.
The rest of the garden will be from seed, and won't go in until tomorrow. I need to cool off and take a shower! Whew! Someone stinks around here!
|Lots of tomatoes!|
No weaving this week, just a lot of work and some serious knitting. I'm about up to the elbows on the hot pink sleeves, and started a new little number. Several years ago, a man donated his late wife's collection of Harrisville Shetland yarn, and I got six cones of lavender. I've made a rug with some of it, but have plenty left. I got this issue of KnitWear, a new knitting magazine that I love, and here is a pattern using that very yarn. It's a simple cable twist all over, a pattern I can look at once a row and keep going without further reference. Not quite t.v.-friendly, but not bad, Great for the front porch and a frosty adult beverage in the evening!
An update on Lee's Surrender on Bertha: After I got everything tied on and tied up (sounds racy, doesn't it?), I found two threading errors in the tabby rows. I was too tired to fix them, so they'll be waiting for me next Tuesday.
Until then, Happy Spring!
