Origami beads, strung with Czech glass (and yes, the odd plastic) for a friend.
Cap Shawl update - I'm on round 153 of 163. Once the main body is finished, I shall have the pleasure of knitting the attached border.
Stripey socks news: a disaster befell me while I was riding to knitting a few weeks ago. Due to a combination of careless sock-stowage and winds generated by incredible, super-human speeds, my sock-in-progress, along with its Addi Turbo, got sucked into the pedal thingy. Like, the place where the pedal is attached to the bike. The entire shooting match was wrapped so tightly around the pedal thingy (help me out here, Lizbon) that I had to cut the yarn free, and now my Addi Turbo is permanently kinked in several places. Dirty grease is immovably ground into the leg of the sock. And I have lost my mojo.
But look how good my dinner was.
Baby Yukon Golds, olive oil, butter, rosemary from my garden, Maldon salt and cracked pepper.
Pink hardy geraniums, and my first ever stargazer (I think that's what it is).
Chives, a very pretty plant that also provides highly popular bee and butterfly habitat. These are unbelievably hardy, fast growing, and you can cut them down after their first bloom to get a second one later in the summer. Hummingbirds love them too.
And with all this stitching, knitting, cooking and weeding, some things are bound to take a backseat.
