Gardening

Found my mojo hiding somewhere, have given myself a kick up the butt and got going on some gardening (a little later than I planned but still..) We’ve decided that we just don’t have the time to commit to our allotment and do as much there as we’d like, it’s difficult for me to do much on my own there with the little one, it’s a half hour walk there and back, so it takes a big chunk of time out of my already full days to even pop there for a ‘quick’ watering session. So we’re going to do our growing at home, we have onions and garlic in the allotment so when they are harvested we’ll make a final decision as to whether to keep it or let it go. I managed to find some great bags in town the other day, similar to what I’d seen in an organic gardening catalogue, to use to grow our potatoes and squash in (and for a fraction of the price!)

A little weaving….

One of the gifts I was given for my birthday last week was a peg loom from my mum. I managed to find half an hour to have a quick try of it yesterday!

Knitting!

I’ve had this wool on my needles for weeks, slowly being knitted into a headband to hold my dreads out the way. And finally it’s finished!!! My knitting skills aren’t great, knit one, purl one is about all I can manage, so I’m wondering how many things I can make out of simple, straight pieces of knitting LOL
