here and there

A little progress, a little progress…

a bit o' progress

The crochet silky wool skirt is coming along. I crocheted two skeins worth of the front/back (they’re both the same), and now I’m starting on the back, just for some variety. It’s going much quicker the second time around. I still have to wait for the rest of my yarn to get here, so it’s not a great hurry or anything. I have to figure out how to put together a little underskirt for it, too.

And my first tomatoes of the season are not the ones in the allotment garden! These are tiny tims, which I picked up on a whim at the garden centre, in pots on my back deck. They’re teeny little plants but are producing a fair amount of tomatoes for their size – I’ve got four plants, so I should be able to harvest some for eatin’ here and there.

Yikes, it’s getting late. Better go water that garden.

    I really enjoy your plant photos! Well, knitting photos too, of course, but all of my vegetable plants died or got eaten by snails, so I’m sort of harvesting vegetables vicariously :)

    I really like the color of that skirt. I’m sure it will be beautiful on you. I don’t crochet much (actually, not since I learned to knit 20 years ago), but I’ve been considering giving it another try, and probably would if I found the right pattern, so I’ll be interested to see how your skirt turns out.

    My Tiny Tim’s are growing too! I planted about 8 seeds per pot though, so I’m going to end up having them in mass quantity! haha.
    I am so excited!!!

    Beautiful skirt! Mind if I ask where the pattern came from? Is it one of yours, or from someone else?

    Can’t wait to see it done!
