On the Needles –

It was a very busy week this week and I was too lazy to get on the computer last night — actually too lazy to go take photos.  Plus the photos turn out much better in the true light of day.

012 My CustomFit Summer KAL sweater (sleeveless shell) is coming along despite the fact I had to rip back one of the center motifs because I had some yarnovers missing.  But back on track and another repeat or two and I should be into the armhole shaping – it goes quickly from there.


This is also a CustomFit summer sweater (elbow length sleeves) —

013I had to re-cast on the bottom of the front since I had too many stitches on my needles by a long shot – I must have had the wrong number for the cast on in my head and never double checked it.  Anyway, a few more rows for the seed stitch hem  and I’ll be read to continue up the front.

And I’ve made a bit of progress on my Wiggle Wrap after I finished my Camp Loopy 1 project.

016But I’ll concentrate on my KAL sweater for the next couple of days until it’s time to cast on Camp Loopy 2 project on July 1.  June has really flown by  – I can’t believe it’s nearly July.   But July 1 I’ll cast on my baby blanket and put the sweaters aside until that’s done.  The long 4th of July weekend will be spent knitting and working on Camp Loopy 2 fabric project also.

I’ve been busy this morning – weeding in my little garden patches.  I moved some tomatoes earlier this week to a second garden patch since no one else had planted that patch and my cucumber plant was threatening to strangulate a tomato plant or two.   The tomato plants are looking healthy – as is the cucumber – lots of blossoms starting on both.  My pepper plants – tho they have blossoms, are looking not so healthy as far as the leaves are concerned but we’ll see what happens.  The red onions  – lots of long green stems above grown so bent some of the taller ones over so they won’t start to blossom.

And the rest of the morning was spent in EQ working on a new design for Hoffman California Fabrics so I’ll let you know when the next free pattern is available.    Time clearly got away from me tho since I just realized it’s 2 p.m .and so far all I’ve had is coffee today – no wonder I’m hungry!    Breakfast? Lunch? Brunch?  have to go take a look in the fridge and see what it will be.
