Can you believe I am actually being monogamous in my knitting these days? Moth is what I pick up every time I sit down. The first part of the shawl is so easy to memorize and truly is a relaxing knit.
You can get a better idea of the color in this picture.
The colorway is Red Hot Chili Pepper and it has long been a favorite of mine in my palate of colorways.
Soft and understated in the skein but the autumnal colors just call out to me in the shawl, which of course makes it that much more enjoyable to knit.
One of the things that has made it so easy to stay committed to one project has been a new found interest in quilting. Last week Terry and I met for lunch and an afternoon of shopping in my new favorite fabric store.
Can you see them….? Click to see…….yes, those are bees! How could I have possibly left this fabric behind?
There is something in the wings though that will be fluttering by my desk soon….that will make it very hard to bee a one project woman. I think I may have to put down moth for this one, but only this one and then it will be back to moth. :)
On the garden front, I have noticed over the last few days that my tomato leaves have had an unusual look to them. At first I thought perhaps it was just my paranoid imagination, but alas I don't’ think so.
If you look very closely you will see what I think may be the culprit. I will be making a trek over to Maine today to pick up some of this.
Anyone who thinks that gardening is easy hasn’t had a garden for too long….<grin>. I am getting better at recognizing potential problems earlier while plants can still recover….at least I think I am… ;)
