not much progress this week, as we have had beautiful weather (translate: I spent most of the weekend outside, and came in at night much too tired to even knit) and we have had company.it's over here and it's free ). I no longer think mine looks like a goat in this colourway...now I think it looks like a dog. I agree with the comments last week though - once it is stuffed and I have added the face, I think it will look just fine.
And now...this is where I get into trouble. Last week, a fellow yarn-alonger (homesprout) shared a tunic she was working on, and I clicked the link, and I found the book (Modern Top-Down Knitting) and I ordered said book, and I want to make about 12 projects RIGHT NOW! And I am constantly checking out the zero mile diet while I start planting a few things in my garden...and yes, if you are wondering, I am in fact quite envious of all of you that are already eating whole meals from your garden. For the next few weeks, all we get to enjoy are herbs, green onions, rhubarb, and maybe, just maybe, in a week or two, some baby bok choy. Preserving Food without canning or freezing arrived with the knitting book (combined them for free shipping YIPPEE.) and the next four are just less than half of what I brought home from the library last night. I'll let you know how they turn out, but the urban homestead sounds promising as it is for city gardeners like myself. (Although, if you stand in just the right spot in my backyard, it is starting to look like a little farm, and that makes me very happy indeed).
Now, if anyone can help me out...what, oh what, do I do with all of my parsley? I know I can freeze it, but other than soups, where will I use it up? PS: my husband doesn't like parsley (he says) so I have to hide it.
Tomorrow, of course, I link up with Ginny from small things for yarn along.
