Meet Big Green. Or Grande Verde. However you say it, its done. Off the knitting needles. Im pretty pleased with it, since it is my first blanket. The yarn I used is very light so it is a good summer blanket. But its pretty fragile looking. Im a little afraid of it being tossed in a washing machine. Probably needs to be hand washed and dried on air fluff cycle of the dryer. Few spots in it that bum me out but oh well.
It is going to go to Ernie’s cousin, Tami. This was originally for her (I just didnt have it done by her shower) and she is having a boy in the summer so it will be good for him. So long, Grande Verde. Cant wait to get started on the next one. Its a more sturdy yarn in a funky fuschia color.
Also, my first Cosmo bloomed! Here are a few pics of the garden. We are weeding tonight and working in it, so hopefully soon I will have a more groomed garden to show. 🙂 First pic is Cosmos, Second is our huge row of sunflowers that I placed rather thoughtlessly there when planning the garden. They seem to hog all the sunlight and the row of peas next to them are puny. The next pic is a cool wooden tressil thing Ernie made for the peas to climb. The next pic is them climbing! The garden seems to have a mind of its own, knows what to do, we wrapped NO vines around anything, they found them on their own. God is so good, even in nature. The final pic is our little cutecumbers (how do you spell that?) Its so neat to see this garden grow.
