1) Our boy's baseball season is now over. And while we all had a great time, I can't say I will miss doing the last-minute laundry loads to get the uniform clean for the next game (why do they always choose white pants for sliding in the dirt?), taking 2 hour car trips to out-of-the-way baseball fields, and arriving home late with chores and homework yet to be done.
Still, until next season I will miss moments like these:
2) Our big vegetable garden, as well as my dye plant seedlings, have been planted. While there is always watering and weeding to be done, at this stage of Spring, once the plants are in the ground, I always feel like I can sit back and enjoy watching everything grow.
I am especially excited that the dye plants are off to a good start, as Angie and I will soon be taking a class on natural dyeing at A Verb for Keeping Warm. I look forward to learning more about how I can best put my dye plants to use, as well as to see what they have growing in their own dye garden.
Angie, being the awesome friend that she is, has even offered to drive, which means I can knit in the car! So, maybe I will actually have a finished object to show you next Friday. Meanwhile, I can show you the socks that I started and she finished. Remember these? Well, Angie not only finished them, she also wove in all of those pesky yarn ends, and emailed me some photos for the blog:
It was Angie's idea to add more blue at the cuff.
Didn't they come out well? Now we just need to get
them where they belong, on the feet of the Detroit Tigers fan.
I'm back to having knitting on the brain. I have a list of knit gifts I'll be finishing up, as well as some new projects I've been inspired by recently. So, thanks for coming back to visit. I'll have more to share soon.
