Wednesday WIPs and A Bit of Planning

 

"We are all woven together in the great web of humanity, and whatever we can do to benefit and uplift others will reflect in blessing upon ourselves." - Ellen White

This week has been busy.  Between work, taking care of our home and taking our sweet boy to the park, I haven’t really had too much time to knit, or work on any other crafty endeavors. But that’s ok, I like being busy and taking care of the things that matter the most to me.

On Monday I casted on the Glamrock Tee by Tatsiana Matsiuk. I decided to use my recently acquired Lion Brand Re-Up yarn in Gray for this project and so far I am liking how it is knitting up.  This is a very simple design, making it the perfect project for working on throughout my work

Glamrock tee is beautiful summery top which is knitted with sport weight yarn in no time. Top features boxy silhouette with plenty of positive ease, boat neckline and dropped shoulders. Beautiful lacy stitch around shoulder area combined with stockinette stitch and simple ribbing. Front and back of the tee knitted bottom up in stockinette stitch with simple lace around shoulders. After front and back are completed and shoulder seams sewn, the stitches picked up for sleeves bands. The tee knitted with positive ease 10-15 cm. - From the designers description on Ravelry

I am still working on my toe-up version of Hermiones Every Day Socks and really do like the textured look.  This pattern truly was perfect for the Patons Kroy I’m using and to me it’s a match made in heaven!


I just received my latest issue of MaryJane’s Farm and can’t wait to read it.  I love this magazine, it’s always full of interesting articles, stories and yummy recipes and it’s one of the very few magazines I subscribe to.

I have been thinking about what flowers and herbs I want to plant this year and definitely want herbs for cooking, and even tea. Having a tea garden has always fascinated me, so this year I plan to try a few herbs and flowers specifically for herbal tea blends.  If your are interested in growing plants for tea, check out Growing Your Own Tea Garden by Jodi Helmer.  The best part of growing many of the herbs I am choosing for my garden is that I use them in every day cooking, so it’s definitely a win-win.

I am also deciding on what flowers I want to pot too.  I love old fashion garden flowers, so pansies, stock, alyssum and daisies will be a few favorites that will definitely be in pots around our patio. I am also planning on a few hummingbird friendly plants too.  So many decisions to make, but the best part, I have three months to decide before I go on a plant buying spree!

Have a wonderful day my friends and until next time, be creative!

  1. pretty knitting! I am hoping my schedule permits me to knit more but unpacking and settling in a new house is taking up most of my time these days.
