Has it truly been more than a week!?
Problem is, well…two things really, I have so many things that need to be
done that I’m not sure where to start and I just need my own dern camera.
Maybe I’ll share some pics then I’ll make a list and have you guys help me out.
First is a shot of half of my mown yard, I took out the tractor today and did
some damage to the weeds. Second is the violet patch, a nice chunck of the
yard that just doesn’t see the mower till we harvest every little violet flower
that it can produce. For what, you ask? Violet Jelly of course! We’ll have some
in the Etsy shop soon enough – I’ll let you know.
Last is my trumpet vine – I lurve this thing – flowered until November and
should reach the top of my garden arch this summer, only two years old.
Alright, time for that list.
a.) 3 more merbs and a narwhale for my brother
b.) finish the merb that my mil requested for ner niece
c.) last 18 rows of a special project for Melissa d.) start a scarf and finish a pair of super easy gauntlets for my classes next weekend – if you are in the area I will be teaching a basic knitting workshop
and a fast and simple gauntlets workshop at the Mass Sheep and Woolcraft
people that ask for Chicken Betty 🙂
f.) Jewelry, jewely, jewelry! I have so many ideas for new stuff in my head!
g.) something for me with all the yummy yarns I got at the tent sale.
I promise to share pics with you later in the week:) Good stuff.
h.) block one and finish the second square for a super secret blanket project.
Can’t tell you who its for – she stops by here once in a while – heres pics
Do you remember the “bad yarn“? I thought it would work nicely for this
person. Kind of a “wink, wink, nudge, nudge, know whot ah mean! ”
I figured out what was bad about it – click on the middle pic and look close.
Its a 4 ply yarn and the 4th ply is, well, bigger, than the other 3. Show-off.
i.) card and spin the canine fiber that my other brother gave me last
summer. I was able to borrow a spinning wheel from a friend at work to
make this go by much faster. I’ll be drafting the fiber with some like colored
domestic, we’ll see how it turns out.
Okay, thats it for “needs to be done” I could go on for a bit about what I
want to do which is really just sitting on the couch all summer eating
tomato and avocado sammiches and watching movies with Javier Bardem,
livin to scratch out. Ha! speaking of – check out whats in the shop and see
if there’s anything you need for a good summer. Thanks for stopping by!
