I'm knitting a Bottoms-Up Bucket... well sort of I'm not really following the directions other than the decreases. I'm using two yarns I found in my stash, a plain purple cotton yarn and a slub cotton/rayon yarn. Both are thinner than the recommended yarn so I’m going to used both yarns held together.
I'm on row 134 and the second last chart of my Lotus Blossom shawl. This progress picture looks not much different than the previous progress photos.
These are a few photos taken in my yard.
My beloved dog Barkis he is 12 years young this summer.
Bleeding heart and a few summer tulips that the deer missed.
Poppies & Iris
I love these poppies they fade to a soft pink and have deep purple centres.
One of the gardens out front.
Thérèse Bugnet rose
These strawberries are wild however they volunteer in my side garden every year.
This is my favourite plant - Solomons Seal, although the flower does not look like much their scent at night is as close to heaven as you can get.
So, if you need me I'll be in the garden on the East Coast.
