Today is a bank holiday and Bob is off, so I took a day off too. We worked in our garden.
It may not look like much, but it’s ours. I don’t have a before shot, but it looked something like this:
This is the other side of the garden we haven’t gotten to yet. Basically we cleaned up trash, dug up weeds, and moved gravel. I also moved the mint, blackberry, and lemon balm from the front of the house.
Our garden architecture is a mishmash of breeze blocks, concrete, and ancient limestone pillars, like these two that have been made into steps. We don’t think they are tombstones, but they may have been gate posts. We have two more hanging out at the top of the garden looking for a new purpose. You can see them in the first pic if you look closely.
My Christmas cactus is blooming. I thought this made a good segue into knitting content.
My Shetland tweed throw is almost done. I need to finish the last repeat and then icord an edge all the way around. I would like to try to squeeze one more repeat in as I still have two full and two partial balls left. That may be cutting it close, though.
I’m enjoying the colors on my Barley Light hat.
Trans Rights Are Human Rights sock is coming along. One more blue stripe and I will start the heel flap.
Top down increasing on Franca. Round and round we go!
And here’s another pic of Barley Light. I couldn’t decide which one to use.
How are your WIPs coming along?
