…I cast on. Finally. Wanna see?
I’ve made it through the cuff chart and started on the leg chart. So far? Meh. Though I do like the yarn color and sheen, it’s very pretty and I’m sure the socks will be gorgeous. I just, well, meh. I’ll keep knitting them and hopefully they’ll grow on me. ;o)
In other news, we worked in the garden this weekend. Dobby helped me clean out all the waist-high weeds and RR manned our mini roto-tiller:
After about an hour of tilling, I had a blank canvas:
…and two dogs that were very happy that the loud noise had ended. ;o)
I planted my tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, bean and corn plants just in time for the freeze we’re supposed to get tonight. Yay.
I also knit on my Lady E while watching the Survivor finale last night. I’m on tier 14 and it’s looking pretty nice! No photos since I didn’t want to further freak out the future FIL – he was kind of vocal and slightly negative when I took the sock picture (my fault since I waited until he showed up for dinner to take it) and I figured a picture of the shawl would send him over the edge. Please keep in mind that this is a man who refers to the internet as “that Ebay thing” – as in, “can you go on that Ebay thing and look up my friend Monty for me?” So the idea of having a website where I talk about knitting (which he thinks is kind of boring…okay a lot boring) and having lots of people read about my knitting and where they want to see a photo of my knitting is a bit (okay a lot) foreign to him. *sigh*
Anyway, as for Survivor, I’m pretty happy with the winner. The other person was kind of a sneaky bastahd – though I think the winner was kind of sneaky too, just better at hiding it. ;o)
So what did you guys do this weekend? Anything exciting?
