Whew, time sure flies by when you’re out of the house nearly the entire week! Monday, Megan H. and Stacey came by to pick cherries!
Megan, being the tallest one, was atop the ladder while Stacey kept an eye out. I was in charge of getting bowls and picking gooseberries. It sure goes a lot faster (and more fun) when you’ve got people to pick with!
Lots and lots of cherries, plus a good amount of gooseberries (going to try my hand at jam).
Talk about a big bowl of cherries. Megan and Stacey each took some, and I took a big tupperware-full to the party yesterday, where they got eaten (and I gave gave the extras to Megan I.). I’ve still got a whole bunch left though!
Back to the knitting – I haven’t been doing that much lately, just a bit here and there. I did manage to finish the Lorna’s Laces socks, though.
I’m digging the slightly longer than my usual ribbing. I did these toe up, short row toe and heel. Maybe 3/4 of a skein each? I was using leftovers.
What else…oh, the boy and I cooked up a solution to the plying head problem:
A couple of wooden blocks drilled out by yours truly, plus some metal washers (which had to be drilled out a bit in the middle as well – I left that to him to do). Very secure, and seems to work well, but I’ll have to put it to the test soon!
