ahhhh the dog days of summer ....

My eldest (knit boy1) was away ( his first time) on a trip with his community center. They went all the way to sunny California ! I missed him , but can I tell you that the house had a whole different vibe when it was void of a (soon 2 B) teen..lol... We missed him though , but he came back safe sound and in 1 piece... gotta love em!
Tomorrow I send off mid kid ( knit boy 2) to summer camp for 4 weeks ! He will be missed ! I always worry about his hygiene practices when he is away ! lol...I'm sure he will be ok though ... already planning out the care package i will send him next week......
smilin' in this heat !!!!!

Introducing my garden ! with all this talk of " veggies gone wild " on the news , a sistah took matters in her own hands !

In knitting news :
I am making my way through these stitches.
The baby blankie is coming along nicely in my humble opinion. I have made it through the basket weave and now I am garter stitching in yellow
a few more rows and it will be another pattern texture in green. I am doing this blanket in bright bold RASTA colors using Lions Brand wool. I love this because it is all in my head . No pattern ! I am just flowing with what feels right with this blanket...In the beginning I tried this pattern I found in a n old pattern book , but It just left me frustrated and swimming at FROG POND !! (what a humid, mucky place to be ! ) So here I stand proudly designing my baby's first blanket . at the rate i am going I will probably be able to get in a tiny sweater and perhaps a pair of booties for the new arrival.

Take a look at what i got here so far :

In other knitting news I have not given Mr. knot so knice his hat yet , in case your waiting for that update . He knows about it , but has not actually gotten it in his hands or on his head yet . Still debating the brim ...( sigh)
