Hahahaha Whatnot. That is a funny word. Well I have been busy knitting lately. I had finished up some projects which means I cast on for a couple new projects. Gotta keep that balance going.
Here is my favorite right now. It is a sweater called Sprössling . I am knitting it with Bugga yarn in the color Northern Purple Gold Beetle.
I put a lot of stitch markers for every lace repeat. It works for me.
The other project that I am doing is a Farrow Rib Scarf. It is really a common pattern.
Here's Farrow Rib:
Multiple of 3 sts +1.
Row 1: *k2, p1* repeat across ending k1
Row 2: p1 *k2, p1* repeat across
I put it here because it has been put out there by many people even my local yarn store.
My scarf is being done in Malabrigo Silky Merino which is 51% Silk and 49% Merino wool. The color is natural.
The cute knitting bag in both photos above was from my sister Susan. I hope that she doesn't regret giving it to me because it makes a great project bag.
Here is a finished project. This is yarn from my own handspun fiber. The fiber is Targhee and the color is called Lord of the Mountains. It is from the Fiber Club at Crown Mountain . I think that the club is closed for this year but the Exotic Club is still open for some of the months. The fiber is excellent. We get TOP which is very soft and well prepared.
The hat is my own pattern. I did a large cable around and then I picked up stitches at the top and knit till it closed up. The hat was too small for me so Peanut will have it.
It's hard to see the cable because my flash was too bright I guess.
So now the WHATNOT. I wanted to share some photos of my garden. This was taken about a month ago. After that bounty the garden took a nap.
I think the weather affected my garden. We had very very hot temps and then the weather went to foggy and cool. So I may be ripping out the garden and planning a winter garden.
I have to wait because we always get an Indian summer where it will be very hot in Oct.
Here I made some chicken pita's with my homegrown tomatoes. Oh how I LOVE homegrown tomatoes.
Here are my lettuce Taco Boats. The white stuff is sour cream. There is chicken, cilantro, tomatoes and the lettuce. YUM
I've lost some weight with my healthier eating. I will make a separate post on that subject.
Right now I am worried about Oli. Aka Oliver Cat. He went outside last week. I don't know if a bug bit him or if he is just allergic to a plant outside. He had a little spot under his chin where it looked like a scab. But lately he has been scratching it. Now it is a big boo boo. I cut his back feet toe nails. I can't put a lampshade on him because it would ride on the boo boo. I put neosproin on it too. Poor baby. No more outside for Oli.
So that is all I have for now. Have a great weekend and HAPPY KNITTING & GARDENING.
