Welcome to My Garden

Below is a picture of my garden. Okay, so it's in pots, so what? I have lavendar, tomatos (six plants?), a strawberry plant and some herbs. Yep, this is the closest I'm going to get to a real garden for a long time. But at least it works. I love fresh tomatos and am looking forward to herbs again this year. Strawberries and lavendar are my newest plants. I also cleaned up the balcony and rid of most of the leaves left over from months and months of wind and snow and rain. I purchased my plants from both our co-op and Lowes. The co-op plants are not pictured, sorry.

Boy has been sweet again. He bought me another skein of HazelKnits sock yarn. This is Lime Granita. Sooo beautiful! I also have some great news! Boy got into a unviersity close to here and will recieve a $4k scholarship every semester if he attends. SWEET!!!!! Congrats Boy! <3 <3 <3

I also recieved some Socks That Rock Mediumweight in Carbon. This I bought from Ravelry for $21 including shipping! Okay, yeah couldn't resist! Plus, it's pretty!

I am also starting the largest project for me yet. I've been promising my dad something for a long time and just never got around to it. I did give him the orange beanie though. Soo, I was looking around and found the Cobblestone Sweater by the one and only Jared of Brooklyntweed. I had a skein of brown ecological wool from cascade and calculated how much is needed. I had to buy 2 more skeins! Yeah, a shitload of wool for this sweater. Anyways, I have cast on and I really need to knit this. I owe my dad a lot and he would wear anything I knit him, maybe even pink socks *thought*. Anyways, help me stay motivated on this thing! =p

Meet my new "Scare the birds away from Izzy's bordfeeders because they're already chubby and it's fun" employee. Yes, Mac has a great time sneaking up on the birds at my birdfeeders and scaring them away. It's kind of cute actually. LoL!

Also, MORE DESTASH! Yes, this is sock yarn below. There is some Sockotta, tons of Gypsy Girl Knits, some Schaefer Anne, and crystal palace, etc. If you would like some of this yarn, you MUST pay shipping!!! I will calculate the weight and send you an estimate of costs. Thanks! Remember to e-mail with your address.

I'll take all the yarn in your destash picture. I seriously need to start some mobile projects that are warm weather friendly.
