On the needles
I've been knitting on an Age of Brass and Steam these last few days. Almost have it done. I also am almost done with the Candle Flame. Pics are below. Other than that I haven't been doing much.
I finished the test knit hat and cowl set. I like how it turned out. I plan on starting another set soon using this pattern. I may use the same color combo as well. My bestie liked the set I knit and wants a set for herself. I think it would make a good gift for her birthday or maybe Christmas if I can wait that long to give it to her.
I got RAKed again! Isn't that awesome? Received a nice little project bag along with a couple of stitch markers, a couple peppermint tea bags, a pretty appliqué, some floral ribbon, purple buttons, a purple emery board, and some Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme. What a wonderful package to open this morning. Started my day off great!
In the Garden
Most of my tomato plants that I found in the garden have survived the transplanting. I have about fifteen plants that look pretty healthy. I gave a few away that I hadn't had room for and several that I kept died, but all in all I'm pretty happy with the number I have. I planted some various seeds as well, but so far none have sprouted. I hope some do. I will be a little disappointed if all I get to grow this year are tomatoes.
I bought more fish! I couldn't help myself. I had asked Mother for a few dollars to buy some aquarium salt and water treatment and as usual she gave me more than I asked for. So while I was in Evansville at the junk yard getting parts for the car I went by Harps Pets and got what I needed along with two more female Black Mollies and a Banana plant for the aquarium. I think the Mollies frenzied movements stress Zade out a little during feedings, but other than that our sweet Betta seems to accept the new additions to his tank.
So that's about it for today. I am getting very spontaneous with my knitting and not been planning out what I'm going to knit next. So it will be a surprise what I decide to do next! I will keep you all updated as usual on Sundays or Mondays. Until then my tangled tanglers ....
Enjoy the pics of my fishes that I threw in here along with a pic of some pretty flowers growing in my yard :-)
