The Garden Report

Blueberries - 5/30/07I came home tonight and checked out my fruits and veggies. They all look pretty good or, at the very least, alive. Here are my blueberries again. They're still not blue and they're still not fenced off. That would be one of the things I didn't get around to last weekend. Thankfully, they are still looking very promising.

In a surprising turn of events, I actually got a little knitting done. It wasn't what I planned on. I thought that I'd start a new shawl for DQ out of my handspun or some teacher gifts. I got as far as sitting down with my books and yarn before Stinkette stopped me in my tracks. Remember this?

Log Cabin ReappearsStink does. It's the log cabin blankie I started for her a really long time ago and she's still waiting for me to finish it. She's been really patient but firm. She wants her blankie and she's not going to let me forget about it. I have been feeling the urge to finish up some of my UFO's - I guess this will be the next on the list.

I did another section last night and I have to say that I really like the way this is turning out. The colors work and the yarn is sturdy but soft. I'm just not sure how many sections I can do before it makes me want to tear my hair out. I'm wondering if there is some cool edge that I can put on this thing that will not require me to do wicked amounts of knitty math. I'm thinking that a bit of lacy crochet might be cool. Who knows, maybe I'll just keep knitting till I run out of one of the colors but, I have a boatload of this yarn in the house so I'm not sure how likely that is.

Love that blankie. I'm crocheting one for each of the girls. Remember, certain things we tell them, they never forget! Looks like you're going to have some blueberries ~shlurp~

Ooo, your blueberries look great. I should visit my friends and see where theirs are at... I think we might be planting some in the corner of our yarn next year as the neighbors pin tree has made the soil there too acidic for our grass and blueberries like pine mulch I guess.

I love the final log cabins, but I didn't get very far on my own. I don't blame you for it being a long-time UFO.

You have your own blueberry bush? I'm so jealous!

What about a picot edge? You can either knit it or use a crochet hook. I love the log cabins and have enjoyed doing five. I sense you're not enjoying yours quite as much. But when it's finished, someone else will! Thanks for sharing these lovely pics. B
