Sleeve Trouble

by Kelly

Have you ever noticed how troubles seem to multiply? First I was having a problem with the sleeves of the sweater I'm knitting, then when I came here to the computer to download the 'in progress' picture, I discovered that our digital camera isn't communicating with computers today.  If it was a person it would be sitting with it's face averted, arms crossed, lips clamped.

So while our camera is electronically sulking, and I am trying to wrap my brain around the math involved in making the slope of a sweater sleeve come out correctly, I thought I would share pictures of another hobby I have: gardening.

I don't know what it is about the month of January that makes me dig out the gardening catalogues and dream about spring. Do you do that too?

And lastly, a garden visitor who was just passing through when I opened the kitchen door and stopped him in his tracks:

I don't know which of us was more surprised. He recovered first, though, and took off after his mom and siblings.

And now I'm off to dig out the flower catalogues...and dream over the flower seeds that I got for Christmas. So much potential.


  1. I too suffer from the deep-winter gardening bug. Though this year I am resolved to scale down. I am a tomato addict and always think that more must be better. Last year we had about 20 tomato plants and surprisingly the yields were not that impressive. I was never faced with 'What am I going to do with all these tomatoes' dilemma that people speak of. I've honestly never understood that - you eat them of course! But even so, I am determined to limit my load to 8 plants. Once I stop think about tomatoes I should really start thinking about adding some perennials to the garden - hmmmmm... maybe 20 or so.

  2. You've said before that you would love to live on a farm...considering your ambitions for your small suburban yard, I can only imagine that your farm wouldn't be financially solvent...although I'm sure it would be breathtakingly beautiful.

  3. Oh yeah, I definitely wouldn't make any money :)
