Today is cold and dreary with rain, rain, rain! Yuck!...I have errands that must be run! Sigh...
On a more cheery note, how about a look at my mini, mini garden.
I am trying this upside down tomato planter this year. There are 3 different tomato plants in here. A roma tomato, a regular tomato and a cherry tomato. We shall see if this works. So far there are a few flowers--Yeah!
Another one of these hanging planters for 30 strawberry plants. So far only a few puny little strawberries but they were tasty!
I found these tiny tiny tomatoes. Micro mini's I think they were called. Well, had to try them!
My tiny patch contains 2 sweet banana peppers, 1 green bell pepper, 2 basil, oregano, thyme, parsley, garlic chives and rosemary
OK, how about some craftiness.
As most of you know, I like to knit a bit in the evenings. I am currently working on a skinny little scarf. The pattern requires a cable stitch holder.
This is the kind I have used for years. Ok, but I would often have stitches slip off.
I recently bought this style to try. I absolutely LOVE it!
Here it is in action. Slip your stitches onto it and it hangs securely
knit the next 3 stitches from your left needle
Then, knit the stitches off the cable holder. The shepherds hook style is so much easier to use.
I have a bit more to knit before I'm done but I hope to show you the completed scarf soon!
