Yarn of the Month

Tomorrow is a new Yarn of the Month at the store. May will be Sock Yarns! All in-stock On Your Toes 4ply, bamboo, DK, Kroy, Fortissima, Kureyon Sock, and Austerman Step will be 10% off, and if you've got a Preferred Client Card you'll get 15% off!

I'm going to Knit Nite tonight. It will be the first time I've made it since they started going to Nova Knitter's house. I will have to take a sock or something basic cuz I gab too much. Can't have anything that I'll lose track and mess up.

Knitting has picked up a bit. The weather has been quite nice (minus the rain yesterday), so I spend a fair bit of time outside. I planted three kinds of peas, carrots, and radishes. First time for me planting vegetables. When the weather warms up I'll add string beans, lettuce, zucchini, cukes, and tomatoes. I hope something grows! I don't have much of a green thumb. I hope the peas grow at least. I love peas straight out of the garden!

I hope to have a FO soon. I still haven't woven the ends in on my pink sweater. (For shame!) I am going to work on Heddy's sweater this week and weekend. I really want to try and finish it this weekend. I started the second sock of a pair of Austerman's for the store. That's what I will take tonight cuz it's just vanilla. No concentration needed.

Happy knitting!

Oh you are evil, evil people at that store! I WILL NOT be able to resist that sale. I think it will be a race between Heddy and I to get in and get all the good stuff before it's gone!

I miss planting my garden. Be sure to watch your zucchini and cuccumbers, as the birds like to eat them while they are small. I had that problem.

Glad to see your back is feeling better. Have fun at Knit Nite.

Who am I fooling?

Planting a vegetable garden is something I've wanted to do for awhile, but never seem to get around to it . We have a lot of small farmer's markets not even a 10 minute drive from our house , so all that work doesn't seem worth it. However , last summer I planted a few tomato plants in some containers and really enjoyed being able to just go outside to get some. Good luck with yours , will be enjoying the fruits of your labour vicariously ;-))
