tending my yarn garden...
We enjoyed a long weekend visit from dear friends last Thursday through Sunday, and then the beginning of this week was spent working outside. When we are blessed with late winter sunshine here in the Pacific northwest, we have to take advantage of it! The kids and I cleaned up the vegetable garden which makes me so, so happy. :) In other news, and to make life really interesting, our computer was away for several days visiting a nice man who made it work more speedily (gotta love those computer guys!); Dan picked it up on his way home last night, so this is the first opportunity I've had to post anything. So glad my files and pictures are all still here!
With so much going on, I have to admit that I've neglected my knitting and that crocheted slipper, but I figured I'd pop in to share anyway. I did some reworking on Charlotte's Easter shrug since my original attempt turned out way too big. I'm happy with the re-do and just need to order some white yarn to work up the final version for her. The yarn in the top picture is, in case you missed it, actually a candle. Go ahead, look again. :) A gift from my friend who was here over the weekend -- thanks, J!
Lots of garden and homestead reading going on here lately. Our chicks are almost 3 weeks old and are thriving; Eggs Fresh Daily is a goldmine for those of you with a flock; we are loving this book. We believe we have a rooster (at least one) in the flock...
Last but not least, I got a package in the mail on Monday and will share it's contents later this week!
What are you reading/knitting/crocheting? Please share in the comments and join me at Ginny's. :)
