I haven’t gotten a huge amount done since the last update – there’s a few more rows left until I separate out the sleeves, then I hope to move a bit quicker!
A week or two ago I started some flower seeds for our outdoor planters and baskets, along with a couple of herb seeds. Here’s the update! The first batch of seedlings is doing pretty well. I had two of the little pods start to show some mold, so I got them out of there quickly.… Continue reading Agriculture Report
Palm Canyon is coming along – slowly but surely. It is pretty straightforward – mostly plain stockinette with a wide strip of a sort of twisted slip stitch ribbing running up the middle of both the front and the back. Since front and back are the same up for the first section, I’m doing them… Continue reading Palm Canyon – Slowly But Surely
One more block pattern repeat to go on the back part of this shawl, then it gets split to work the fronts! That will be a relief, because it is getting really wide and kind of heavy. Enjoying the color changes of the background yarn – this picture doesn’t really do it justice 🙂

Also, I’ve been crafting for quite a while now, so that makes it a bit… Continue reading Favorite Things I’ve Made
Just in case you haven’t seen it, the Safe at Home blanket looks like a super-cute way to use up yarn scraps 🙂
Coming along! I have three more rows before I’m done with the colorwork. I decided I’m just going to go with webbing on the lower part of the sleeves. Webbing all down one arm would look cool, but I don’t know if I would wear it as much, plus it means a bunch of complication… Continue reading Arachne KAL and Online Get Togethers this Weekend!

Were you given a tree in 4th grade for Earth Day? Did you know there is recycled yarn? Have you tried it ? Do you know you… Continue reading Earth Day Quiz
I finally got a start on my Palm Canyon sweater KAL This is probably going to progress kind of slowly, because I am making the front and back at the same time. They are the same for the initial clue, so it will save time later in the process. And also because I am rotating… Continue reading Palm Canyon – Finally Started!
