Today was my first day working my new allotment garden, and boy am I ever glad for my hat from myrtle beach! It may be touristy but kept me nice and shaded. I’ll have to put up a photo of it sometime! Anyway, the plot was FULL of weeds and after a couple of hours, we still weren’t done clearing it out. The plan tomorrow is to go pick up some free compost from the city bright and early (in Scarborough; I’m really hoping my car doesn’t break down this time) and then finish up the cleanup and start some digging and working in compost. It’s hard work, but satisfying and a great workout to boot!
So obviously I didn’t have much time for the knitting today – in fact, I haven’t knit at all today! I’ll remedy that in a moment, but for now, how about a progress shot of my handspun log cabin?
I’m actually running out of handspun for this particular block and am scheming something up – a really big blanket, made up of large (and possibly some small) log cabins, and the other ones will be made from various other groups of scraps. Worsted weight leftovers, doubled sock yarn leftovers, etc. It’ll allow me to make several large-ish blocks with lots of different yarns and use up lots of leftovers!
