Hey there. The last 7 days have disappeared in a big whoosh. We had our May long weekend and a bit of nice weather sandwiched between days and days of rain, and we made the most of it. I even finished planting my 196 annuals (marigolds & impatiens). Another few bags of natural cedar mulch & I’m done. Here’s a bit of my efforts:
Amid all the family fun and gardening, there has also been a lot of knitting, but I’ve got nothing to show for it. I was hard at work trying to get my new sunflower shawl pattern to work (mostly the middle bit). I got frustrated and ended up procrastiknitting. It turned out that I’d rather invent a whole new double knit hat pattern than work on my shawl. I blame Anna for planting the double knitting seed.
And while I can’t show you the hat either, I do have something knitting-related to show. A little while ago Kristen (Knitting Kninja) had a giveaway on her blog. To get entries, you had to make a donation to an organization helping out in Japan. I won yarn!* It’s a lovely fingering weight skein of Gaia by Becoming Art.
* Because you all know I need more yarn.
