Wrapped a little extra batting around my basil plant since it’s so cold by the window.

needle books

Needle books – the top one was given to me by my friend Denny, the bottom one I cobbled together back in high school. (The pages are made from this horrible poly fleece that I made a pair of wide-legged pants out of. Yikes, the static!)

new sweater

Started a new cardigan yesterday, in Zen Yarn Garden superwash merino – colour is Romi’s Garden.


Thinking of resurrecting this long-term handspun log cabin blanket. I have a few skeins of black that I think I might just knit on there as a border and call it done.

Happy Friday!

    I’m working on a handspun log cabin blanket TOO. Total potato-chip knitting. Yours is a lot more colorful than mine though — I’m doing mine to use up all the odds and ends of purple, red, blue, and grey handspun I’ve had lingering.

    I used that same colorway in a different base yarn (MCN fingering), and I can’t say enough about how gorgeous it is. Looking forward to seeing your design develop.

    Hi Laura, i’m a big fan of your knitting, and also i love your plants – you are a great gardener! If you don’t mind my asking, how do you grow basil? Do you plant seeds or buy plants that have already been grown to some point? I tried growing dill, parsley and lettuce by planting seeds in pots on my window – nothing, i just get tiny sprouts, they hold on for a while, and then just die… Your basil looks like it is really happy in its pot, how do you do that?
