WIP Wednesday 10/6/2010

The Navy Textured pullover now has 2 sleeves! Hurray! Next, blocking.

The nice weather continues for the week. I sat out on the deck yesterday afternoon soaking up some vitamin D and working on that second sleeve. Except for the Stink bugs buzzing me, it was quite a pleasant time. I do like the look of this sweater a lot. I may have to make one for me.

I'm scheduled to teach a Fingerless Mitts class in November, so I am working up a sample to put on display in the shop. I hope to get the first one done by tonight.

Last, but not least. Another of my Dahlia's is blooming!

See? Not everything I grow is purple. I love the colors in this one.

I made a bouquet with some volunteer snapdragons that sprouted on their own from last years seeds.

Live long and prosper. \\//

    Your flowers are beautiful. I love to garden, yet my plants didn't do very fell this summer. :(

  2. Love the sweater and the flowers - and the lack of stink bug photos. ;-)

  3. Stunning sweater! And I love the ombre thing going on with your mitt cuff.
