I’ve been remiss in posting lately and now I have a backlog of stuff I want to show you and I don’t know which bits should just get cut and which shouldn’t and….BLARGH!
Anyway, let’s just start here, shall we?
I got a new tattoo. Before:
For you non-knitters out there, it’s the Kitchener stitch.
‘In addition to his military work, Lord Kitchener contributed to efforts on the home front. The knitted sock patterns of the day used a seam up the toe that could rub uncomfortably against the toes. Kitchener encouraged British and American women to knit for the war effort, and contributed a sock pattern featuring a new technique for a seamless join of the toe, still known as the Kitchener stitch.‘
Even my mom likes it. Thanks mom! Dad? Totally not loving it.
Spring is officially rolling over to very early summer here as well. Yesterday was the first true bit of heavy labour in the veggie garden. Cleaned out all the detritus left from last year:
Turned all the soil, fertilized, and planted the start of this year’s crops.
Three kinds of beets, two kinds of carrots, scallions, turnips, radishes, and 145 storing onions. Nom, nom, nom. Then I sang the ‘Imma gonna eat you’ song to the onions. It was magical.
Today I am nursing a fantastic sunburn and some very sore muscles. LOL.
