I’ve been home from Oregon less than a week and I’m feeling, well, less than motivated to do anything. I did plant some veggies in my balcony garden yesterday, but that’s about it.
These are salad greens. I also planted a Celebrity tomato plant, a zucchini, and a Japanese eggplant. I have not had great luck in the past with growing vegetables of any kind, but I think I’ll at least have some salad greens to harvest at some point.
I also have an Aerogarden and last week I planted some cherry tomatoes:
Yesterday I was excited to see that they had sprouted. I had some luck with growing herbs in the Aerogarden, but at the time I wasn’t cooking enough and a lot of them got wasted. I’m hoping to get more use out of the cherry tomatoes.
I’ve loved this design since I first saw it, but only recently got around to knitting it. It doesn’t look particularly bra friendly, which is a must for me, but I’m willing to take a chance on it. Also, it looks like it would be flattering on a variety of figures, as long as the wearer was comfy with showing a little skin, no matter what her size.
I’ve gotten to the “optional bust shaping,” which I’m including. I’m a little confused though, because it says to do the shaping two times for a D cup. It seems like that would create a weird double-darting, however, instead of one long dart on each side, which is how you normally see darts in clothing. I’m thinking I might tear out the short rows I’ve already done and modify the pattern to do just one dart on each side, only longer. I’m certain I am not making any sense here, but I know what I’m trying to say.
At any rate, this has been a fun pattern to work on, and I look forward to the finished garment.

When I first looked at this jewelry I said “meh.” But as I explored their work further I kind of started liking it, Octopus cuffs notwithstanding (go to the link and hit “next” about three times to see what I’m talking about).

Don’t know why I love stuff like this, but I do. Reminds me once again that I need to learn to sew.
