YOP Sunday


 Not much progress as I am still on a cleaning jag and other household and yard projects.  The sock is past the gusset and onto the foot and this will take a while as I have a big foot!
 I didn't even go to the knitting group this week as I was involved with other things but I did make progress on the blanket....I'm on block #9 of 55 now.........
I'd like to do one just using scraps  with no color plan and see how that would turn out.
My lemon seeds are coming up........
that was easy,,,,,and FREE
Also the plant from my daughter has bloomed several different types of daffodils..........

I'm off to go outside and spray paint some items, weed, feed the hummingbirds and plant some flags in honor of all our veterans and military personnel.  Both my parents were in the army during World War II.  I salute them all.  Happy Trails!


  1. Oh I love how the blanket is coming along and I love your mushrooms!! Hope you have a good weekend.

  2. I've heard of cleaning jags but seems I'm not prone to them. Good thing my husband is :)

    Your sock looks great. I've got really long feet, but the feet don't take that much time because I'm eager to try 'em on! Make sure you try yours on so you know where to start the toe and make sure to factor in some negative ease. I think the first dozen pairs I knit were all too big!

  3. Your daffodils are lovely. And there are those precious black cats next to it. Did you make those? I love them! Sweet hugs, diane

  4. I salute them too! I hope you find time to relax and enjoy the holiday tomorrow. Your projects are coming right along-love the sock yarn and find the construction of your blanket very creative.

  5. Your blanket sure is coming on nicely, I love that it has no pattern just add the colours in.

  6. The blooming flowers look lovely.

    The blanket you are working on looks interesting - like a patchwork quilt.

    Are you growing a lemon tree? I will have to hear more about that. I would love to have a lemon tree.

  7. Yay for the growing things! And by growing I not only mean the plants, but also your sock and the blanket! This post made me smile, thank you! ;-)


  8. Hi Sam,
    I was looking at all your projects. I should lean to knit socks, something I can always use, yours look so pretty.
    Now you have been outside working, you are busy. How nice that you have a knitting group, being around other Women is a good thing.

  9. Way to go. You're making progress on your socks!

    Awesome that your lemon seeds germinated. I need to give that a try!! I could never grow a lemon tree... but I'm thinking that it would take a long time anyway :)

    I didn't know that both of your parents served during WWll. Is that how they met??

    Hope this week is a great one for you.


  10. Guess what I'm doing this morning? I'm googling black cat patterns to find an outline to follow to cut out some black cats! I LOVE yours and need some for my crazy house...or ZOO! heehee! If you see a pattern similar to yours, let me know! Hugs!
