Yarn Along


Hello friends,

We began school again this week and Jen begins grade 12 finals next Thursday! I still can’t believe she’s matriculating this year!! Richard is off riding Berg & Bush and loving it. I’ve been busy with my Henrietta Hedgehog test knit and knitting. I also watched the most informative video regarding cancer here, today, it’s long but so important and very interesting. If you have a chance, try to watch some of it.

Our weather has been incredibly hot and dry recently, it seems to agree with this Bougainvillea though, it has never flowered like this in all the years we’ve had it!


I’ve decided to plant quite a few veggies in the window box right outside our kitchen, whenever I plant spinach in the veggie patch at the bottom of the garden, the Hadedas’ strip it bare. Just look how well this has grown in my new veggie spot! Yay! There’s nothing like popping out the door and picking supper 🙂

Spike Miriam

This is the first completed test knit project for the new Henrietta Hedgehog pattern over on my Ravelry group. Thanks so much Miriam! Miriam named her project Spike! Love him!

Bath Mat

I’m busy knitting a cotton bath mat. I have plenty of bulky cotton and thought it would knit up into an exceptionally soft mat.

Joining the Yarn Along today.

    I’m making a baby blanket like your mat. The areas are more square. My niece wore the first one out.

    The Hedgehog is adorable! And what is that leafy vegetable? Kale? It’s gorgeous. :^)

    Everything beautiful. It seems like everything you touch gets better.

    One reason I like to read your blog is the peek into a country on the other side of the world to see what your life is like. I had to look up hadedas to see what was eating your spinach. It would be interesting to hear more about your experiences with this bird. Your Bougainvillea is gorgeous, as is the spinach in it’s own way. Also love your knitting projects.
