Never thought I'd be blogging.
I read a lot of the knitting blogs and enjoy reading about what others are knitting, the yarns they are dyeing and also dying for, their triumphs and failures, their families and friends. It all seems to blend quite well into the pattern of my daily living.
What brought me to blogging, you say? Joining in ITEIII did it; And how did I find out about ITEIII, you say? By reading the ITEII blog last fall and requesting to be notified for the next exchange sign-up.
Who knows, blogging may turn out to be fun and it will be fun to post some of my projects photos - if I ever figure out how to do it.
I am also a gardener and can hardly wait for the weather to warm enough to go out and begin digging the soil. My husband and I sold our larger home last year, leaving our twenty year mature garden put in mainly by yours truly. What hard work, what mistakes, what fun, and what a joy that garden was. We decided we would like to live 'close-in rural' and purchased a much smaller home with no existing landscaping except for 7 different varieties and three different colors of crape myrtles lining the driveway and a foundation planting in front of the porch of flowering quince. Yes, those thorny, deciduous, and straggly, back of the garden plants, that bloom so beautifully once a year in the early spring and then drop their leaves to expose their wicked thorns each fall. They of course, had to be taken out right away and were replaced with arborvitae. The crape myrtles should come out late this winter/early spring.
Time to go pattern browsing and make a decision on which bag to knit for my exchange partner. I have it narrowed down to two. I was ordering yarn on-line today when someone sucked the last three skeins of one of my colors right out from under me; I was not happy. Unless they get another shipment by the weekend I will have to find yarn someplace else or make the second choice purse. Second choice only because I've already made one and I love knitting on some new stuff.
