This title sums up both my knitting and my garden!
Slowly, the strawberries are starting to ripen…
…and flowers are appearing on the tomatoes.
So we will get a crop eventually. Summer is definitely cool this year and I think its slowing my garden down.
Knittingwise, my socks are coming along rather slowly as well. I’ve just finished turning the heel.
I got distracted by the arrival of the yarn for Funchal Moebius. It was expensive but is beautiful. I went for a mossy green rather than the blue of the pattern- partly because I like green and also because I wanted to be different (just the sake of it!).
This is is moving along at a rather tortoiselike pace. It took me a while to learn how to do a provisional cast on – thanks YouTube. Also the pattern requires a lot of counting and awareness of detail – neither or which are my strong point. I quickly lose concentration, thinking that I know what I’m doing when I quite clearly don’t. So there has been quite a lot of knitting backwards to make corrections.
I wouldn’t say this is a hard pattern – it just requires your full attention. I like this about it.
