Yarn Along – Yarn and Garden

yarnalong_gsheller_grayOn Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

May 1 scrap jar 004April’s Scrap jar,
not many yarn ends,
but a lot of crocheting and knitting was going on.
If you look close you can see
how the Farmer has been spending his time,
3 1/2 -75ft long rows of tomatoes
and assorted peppers, bells and hot.
Broccoli and cauliflower planed under the grape vines.
Raspberries, blackberries and boysenberries growing like mad
behind the grapes

 April 27 brittany 003Brittany’s granny square is finished
and wrapped around ‘sweet one’.

Over half of the 500+ stitches is bound off –
soon Miss Shirley’s shawl will go home.
I’m not sure when blocking pictures will post,
I’ll be out of town next Wednesday.

Shhhhhh, I know it is a quilt. . .
April 28 quilt 001 One step closer to being completed.
One side of the binding machine sewn on,
I’ll turn and hand sew the other side Thursday.

April 28 quilt 002That is if I can get Grissabel
to give up her napping bed for a couple hours.

I finished listen to Cold Truth by Mariah Stewart,
an easy to listen to mystery.
Today I’ll start Mr. Penumbra’s 24 hour Bookstoree
by Robin Sloan, today.

Aren’t we enjoying spring!

  1. Hi Leslie, thought I’d visit after you stopped in at my blog 🙂 Your crocheted blanket is really nice, love the colour choices and it looks so cozy. I like how you squeezed in a photo of the quilt as well … cats seem to find the best places for a snooze don’t they! Enjoy your day, Wendy

    • Thank you for visiting me, you are right that cat likes to be in the center of things.

  2. Oh my! That is some garden! Love your projects…yarn and fabric!

    • the Farmer gardens about 1/4 acre; that equal lots of tomatoes, cukes, peppers. squash, watermelon and corn. He loves it.

  3. Pretty shawl and pretty quilt.

    I love your cat sleeping in the sun. That’s what I want to be doing too!

    • Every one, every day needs a nap time, if it’s good enough for babies it’s good enough for me.
      Thanks for visiting.

  4. Sweet kitty! We’ve been putting our garden in as well, although it is much smaller than yours!

    • the Farmer is retired, though you couldn’t tell it by how busy he is, and gardening is his first love. We live on 7 acres of church property, as assistant caretakers, so he has the dirt to garden.

  5. hopefully grissabel will let you finish the quilt! Shes adorable napping on it though:) I love the granny square blanket. The colours make it a nice modern version

    • quilt on the way to its new home & the mom loved the granny afghan, thanks for visiting

  6. Such a lovely granny blanket, and for a wee one? I won’t tell about the quilting if you don’t tell about all the sewing I have in my mending pile. 🙂

    • mending???????????
