Gardening and Knitting

Well another hot day in NC with no rain again today. I got up this morning and paid a visit to Weston Feed & Seed 330 W Salisbury St . Asheboro NC my Mother wanted to buy peas for the garden well we found the peas and we brought Malbar Climbing Spinach I plan to plant it in a large pot it is a vining plant. I hope it will grow you can cook it or just let it grow for an ornamental plant. We weeded the garden and put Miracle Grow on all the plants. I started another knit hat in the same color as the first. I am still waiting on the yarn to go on sale again. I picked up the book I was reading A Good Yarn, by Debbie Macomber almost finished it is a very good read. The garden is coming along posting pictures of the garden and my day lilies.

My First Knitted Hat

Well tonight was really my last night of knitting class but I am going back next week and I am signing up for more classes when payday arrives. Carolyn said she has some great sock patterns and I am taking my new book that I brought One-Skein Wonders 101 Yarn-Shop Favorites , several hats and scarves I want to try in this book. I am so excited because I finished my first hat tonight. It was a simple pattern just the knit stitch for 10 1/2 inches and then decrease draw together and stitched up one side. I am sorry but I am posting a picture of my hat and it fits my big head, no I am not posting a picture of my self modeling the hat.
