Under the Weather.






I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather the past few days… I’ve been drinking lots of tea and resting in hopes of warding off whatever bug is going around.

Fortunately, this means lots of time to work on the little details for Agrestal (details here, if you missed them) that are making everything come together, like the beautiful yarn tags pictured above, which I picked up the other day. There are some more photos in today’s post on the Agrestal blog. I’ll also add a gentle reminder that the sale (code “agrestallaunch” for 10% off) and the giveaway both close at the end of the day on Friday, so get your purchases and entries in before then!

It’s also meant time for knitting, so I’ve made quite a bit of progress on my socks! I just cast off the first one yesterday evening and I’m almost through the toe on the second. While I knit, I’ve been watching Warehouse 13 on Netflix. It’s science fiction, so I didn’t expect to like it very much, but the storylines are pretty compelling and the characters are great! As for reading, I’m still working on Where’d You Go, Bernadette. I’m about halfway through and still enjoying it, although I hope the plot picks up a bit soon.

Yarn Along



This week, I’ve been…

Knitting :: A simple pair of toe-up socks, but with a twist- an afterthought heel! I’ve never done an afterthought heel before, but I like it so far! The yarn is Turtle Toes self-striping, which I picked up at the Toronto Knitter’s Frolic a few weeks ago. It’s neat because it comes in 2 identical small skeins- one from each sock. As long as you start from the same end of both balls, your socks turn out the same!

Reading :: I’ve just started Where’d You Go, Bernadette, which lots of people have been recommending. I’m only a little ways in, but it seems like it will be a fun summer read.
I’ve also been perusing The Beginner’s Guide to Growing Heirloom Vegetables, which is a nice guide to some basic heirloom varieties with beautiful photos. I just wish it had more info about container gardening with heirloom varieties- if you have any resources, I’d love to hear about them in the comments!
