Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

Meanwhile …


There’s another shawl pattern, Ripples on the Shore, up on Ravelry. The sample used Crazy Zauberball; I had to keep going just to see what the colors were going to do next 😉

These 2 geraniums were very small when I got them – they’re starting to fill the larger pots quite nicely! geraniums

The beans have really taken off; I picked the first ones on Wednesday, then even more yesterday, and we had the first ones (just plain with a little salt & butter – yum!!!) for dinner last night. At the rate they’re going, I’ll be putting lots in the freezer, which will be lovely next winter! I’m still waiting for the wax beans to be ready, but some are starting to show color.bean rows

No ripe tomatoes yet, but there are quite a few green ones out there. I imagine the trick will be to get them before the squirrels do. tomatoesThe now huge volunteer squash plant in the compost looks like it’s likely to be a butternut, so it will be a while before any of them are ripe, but it’s really spreading … squashand I thought the dill almost looked like little yellow bursts of fireworks 🙂 dill

  1. As you may be aware, I have already purchased Ripple and plan on knitting a shawlette out of it having only one ball of Zauerball. Your geraniums are beautiful. The garden looks great and the dill does look like fireworks! Hugs, girl, and enjoy this wonderful weekend!!!!!

  2. Your life is so beautifully painted. Ripples on the Shore! I often think that your blog is proof of the Creator. Thank you.
