Yarn: wool from last year's Connecticut Agricultural Fair

This scarf is for the doctor at the clinic Steve and I went to. He and all his staff were so kind to us I wanted to do something for them in return. I made all the women (7 ) drop stitch scarves which knit up quick and easy. Now that I'm out of school I'm hoping to finish up lots of projects.

Garden update

Ryan and his new button!

Red yarrow and johnny jump-ups
Nasturtiums (makes a salad pretty)
German garlic from a Canadian man I met at a
market last summer

So, Mary being the ever so creative gal that she is, suggested the other night that I chronicle my garden's progress here on my blog. I thought that was a great idea so here are some pictures of it so far this year. Master Ryan went to the doc this morning to get a little button put on his tooth to help it finally come in, it's been over 2 years since he had all the extra adult teeth out.
