Ooooh I’m a bad blogger….these days I’m more inclined to tune into some of my favorite blogs and lurk rather than put my harried thoughts together to form a cohesive sentence….
I do have a finished object though:
A Baby Surprise Jacket for my friend Donna’s newest nephew. Made out of Socks that Rock Heavyweight in Farmhouse. I loved it so much (though the pattern is a bit hinky) that I’ve cast on another for my Vet who is due in May with a girl. And upon stash diving found some more lovely Socks That Rock in Watermelon Tourmaline this time in Mediumweight. Same needle size. Unfortunately I made a mistake yesterday and had to rip back half of my progress last night. I hate that when that happpens….
Mom and I planned a new and much needed garden in front of my house which we will implement next weekend upon the arrival of 10 yards of dirt. Ugh! I’m hoping that it will help with making the house look finished and be easy to take care of because it will be mostly shrubs. I have two 6 ft. high lilacs that are behind a tree and not getting enough light so we’ll be transplanting those to this new garden too. That should be a lovely ordeal….There are two other gardens to tackle and clean up and re-work and I’m hoping to get them done before summer. And plant the cottage gardens with veggies….And Keep The Chickens And Turkeys Out! They are everywhere! So fencing of some sort must be pondered.
I’m off to re-knit what I knit yesterday….
Here’s an ugly chick-pic:
