The nasturtiums got moved to a bigger container and are really thriving--but where are the flowers? The reason I love nasturtiums is because the leaves are just as pretty as the flowers, but I want the flowers, too. Time for more plant food, I suppose.
The basil and tithonia I grew from seed are also showing out quite nicely. Gardening is so easy here--anything will grow!
So that's why I asked you to pardon the garden--I had to show off my babies! Now for the yarn babies.
I finished the TLC Cotton Plus socks. You bet I'll be making more of these. They are so comfy.
This is after a machine wash and dry--still good.
That lace panel I showed you has turned into this. I picked up stitches along one long side and fashioned a bodice. It will have little buttons in front at the rib panel, and I plan to work on an edge along the armholes. I haven't decided whether it will have sleeves or not. First, I am going to pick up stitches along the bottom of the rib panel and work down in a similar smaller lace panel so that I can increase in between the panels for the hips. It's just an experiment to try out a little lace top. I probably won't be writing this particular one into a pattern, so I thought I'd show as I go. It's fun!
Of course, I am trying to give it a little attention between writing ten new patterns whose samples have already been knitted. That's what I'm supposed to be doing right now, so I must say Mar Sin Leat, An-Drasta! (Bye for now--I bet you thought I'd forgotten the Gaelic!)
