Well, onto my projects!! I finally have pictures.. :) This is Mimi's 8 Petal Flower Pendant. Mimi gifted me her pattern~ and I love it! Thank you so much, Mimi! :D I have actually made one more, and am halfway done with a third one (with lots more color combinations in mind, too.) I just haven't taken any pictures of them yet.. Thank you, Mimi. :D
Here is a knitted dishcloth I actually just finished this moring. (How quick am I to blog about it this time?.. :P) It's the Tweedish Cloth. It's actually the second one I made from this pattern.
I made it to go along with the Retro Ribbed Hand Towel I already had finished. (Actually that is the Retro Rib Hand Towel, spelled that wrong, sorry..) I think that it makes a cute set. Someone on the Dishcloth Weekly Knitalong Group I am in on Ravelry, said they were making a set out of those two patterns. I thought it sounded like a good idea. So it isn't MY idea... :P But they do make a nice set. Don't you think? :)
This is the first Tweedish Cloth I finished. I am now making a Retro Rib Hand Towel to go along with it. In orange and w/ a green stripe. My hands are hurting from knitting so much, though; so it might take a while.. :( I used orange and "lemon/lime" for this cloth.
I was going to post a picture of our little tomato we have on one of our tomato plants. I haven't downloaded it to my computer yet, though. It's so cute. I'm so happy it is getting tomatoes! I hope they turn out. I kept forgetting to water them for a while there. Thankfully it was a cold spell, then. It was really unseasonably cool here for a while. (I was beginning to hope it wouldn't actually get hot this year... ha!!...) They said on the news it hasn't been that cold (this time of year) since 1968. :0 That's before I was even born. :P Anyway~~ Now I have to remember to water them every day (twice a day, sometimes). We have also been having some ground squirrels up by our house lately. I got a new kind of bird seed to attract "colorful birds". (And some!) There were Quails out there, and the ground squirrels. Apparently they love this seed, too. I saw one ON my bird feeder this morning! They keep coming under our porch. (It's shady..) Plus my husband had put a muffler from ?? I don't know where, under there. Well the squirrels were living in it!! I told my husband, and he took it out from under the porch; so no snakes start coming up by the house, too. Trying to eat the ground squirrels. Ugh... Well they are still trying to live in there. I was moving it around today when I was out watering the tomatoes, and after a minute, a ground squirrel came flying out of there. I guess I am not going to feed the birds here anymore. The kids play out there, and I don't want them getting bit by a snake or anything. It's bad enough the 13 year old is trying to catch a ground squirrel. (Sigh... Boys!! :P)
