Wow.I'm slightly embarrassed when I see the date of the last post. Well, I'm not going to lie it's been a tough month. I really needed some hope & the promise of good things to come...
and I found it, in the place I can almost always trust to be hopeful & inspiring: the garden.
I started a bunch of heirloom seeds way back in March and it seems like a loooong time coming but, the first signs of lots of veggies in the making are finally making an appearance.
This is a teeny tiny bud that soon will be producing one of my favorite scents...lavender!
Over here we have the first of many tiny cukes destined for salads & pickling
This (if it survives the nightly groundhog attacks!) will be a cosmos
The very first of my most treasured garden crop
Then there are 3 varieties of bush beans, green, wax & purple (!) They will make a show stopping bean salad. Yup, I called a bean salad show stopping. Just you wait...
Oh, and I've been dyeing lots & lots of yarn
Splendor by the dozen and a new addition that will be in my shop this week:
Hudson: a springy, silky, superwash Merino worsted weight. I love this yarn! I use it to teach my Hudson Valley Winter Socks class, an intro to sock making that uses worsted weight. I think it is a less scary proposition for first time sock makers to use "normal" sized needles instead of those "toothpicks".
Stay tuned for lots of new yarns being introduced for Fall, larger dyelots & patterns for all sorts of cozy knits....
