So...it's August 25th and we have...(insert sinister music here) a FROST ADVISORY tonight. Un-frickin-believable. The temperature hasn't gotten above 70 degrees in the last few days either. I know I live pretty far north, but this is ridiculous, even for here.
Well, I think I'd still take this weather over hot and humid stuff any day. I guess I'll bring in my plants tonight just in case. We've finally started harvesting our tomatoes and I definitely want to keep doing so through September. I'm glad I plant them in pots so I can move them inside when needed!These are the Sungold cherry tomatoes I started from seed back in March and they are sooo sweet. I plan on growing these again next year.
The very perceptive Ms. Mary, Mary guesses correctly...this was indeed the start of a pair of Red Sox. Of course during the horrifying Yankees series I didn't really have the heart to work on them, but now that they've actually won a couple maybe I'll pick 'em up again, we'll see.
More excitingly (ha), I've made it to skein #2 (of 3) of yarn for the Flirty Ruffles shawl!
I'm starting on the section where it ends the print o' the wave pattern and starts on the bottom triangle-y pattern before the ruffles. But still, I think based on my average time per very loonnnggg row I've got a good 25 to 30 hours of work left on this!
The only other interesting happening is that I recieved the fall Rowan. I wasn't completely blown away but it wasn't too bad either...I think my favorite thing was Dew and I also like the knee-high socks. Also thought it was kinda funny that both Rowan and VK had a section on knitting in gray colors.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
