Hello friends! It's so nice to stop by this space once again. I've been super-busy working on all kinds of fun projects, they just haven't been knitting or sewing projects. Our community garden is off and running.
And I am delighting in my own garden and new greenhouse this spring. It's wonderful to begin harvesting so early in the year. This was the first basket of produce for the year- I harvested pea shoots, pak choi, swiss chard, arugula, and broccoli raab to go with the green onions in a quick stir fry.
My greenhouse is full to bursting with seedlings- it's tough to photograph the whole space as it's so small. But I have been able to start hundreds of seedlings- vegetables and flowers. Starting annual flowers feels like such an extravagance, usually I only have room under my lights for veggies.
I am finally starting to think about knitting again, my sketchbook of ideas is finally getting used, and my spring fever is wearing off. Here's some knitting news-
I was pleased to be included in GreenCraft magazine's newest issue with a recycled sweater project. It's a beautifully produced magazine with so many inspirational ideas.
I will be at the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival selling my book and showing the samples from the book. There may even be a demonstration or two going on. The festival is not to be missed if you live in the region, it gets better and better every year. It's May 17 and 18 this year.
August 1 and 2 I will be at Berea Arts Council's Quilt Extravaganza Vendors Market with The Knitted Slipper Book as well. I am not even a quilter, but go to the event every year because the market is so fun to shop. Now they are opening up the market to all types of fibery things, not just quilts and fabric, which I think is a great idea of course!
