Monthly Archives: July 2014
Garden view, July 21 – you can see we finally took out the crappy, sad zucchini at the back and have planted some beans that I hope will spring up quickly.
Swatching for a new sweater – Anzula Haiku, a cool blend of superwash merino, bamboo and nylon.
New shawl project, too.
Is three projects enough for 7 days away?!
Garden: things are just going along, the very first cherry tomatoes are juuuuust starting to get a blush! I think we’re going to have to pull out the peas and zucchini this weekend, because they’re just not doing well. I might plant some bush beans in their places, those always do well!
We pulled another carrot, and this one was actually of a decent size! Yum.
The peppers are doing pretty well – first baby serrano!
And check out the crazy flower clusters on this guy:
Knitting: I finally finished up a pair of socks that’s been riding around in my purse for at least six months. They’re Malabrigo sock, which I know, KNOW isn’t good for socks but they’re so nice anyway.
The colour is a really pretty stormy blue-grey – I’d love to knit a sweater in this colour. Pattern is my own, top down with tubular cast on, 68 stitches on 2mm.
And since we’re headed to Vancouver in a week, I need to think about what knitting to bring!
I did eliminate that yellow madtosh from consideration, because although beautiful, I don’t want to take worsted weight on a trip. I’m thinking a shawl, a fingering weight sweater, and maybe a pair of socks to work on.
Oh, and I did I say bread? This loaf came out great.
