I'm on Ravelry and have signed up for the Ravelympics. I've committed to finishing 3 articles in 17 days. I must be crazy. They are DHs sweater,the Fake-a-gamo purse and a tank for my sister. The yarn hasn't been delivered for that one. It's good thing I don't have to sneak yarn into the house. I ordered it, but when it's delivered, I can't bring it into the house. It will have to wait til DH comes home. I ordered it from Knit picks, so hopefully it will be here next week.
The flower (rose mallow) is from my sorry excuse of a garden. I'm not the best gardener at the best of times. I haven't been out there now since the beginning of July. I "snoopervised" DH pulling weeds over the weekend, but it still needs serious work.
My tomatoes are coming in very nicely. I do container gardening as we share the yard with rabbits, deer and othe assorted wild life. This year I put in tomatoes and string beans. This was a first for the beans and I've got plenty of leaves and vines but beans. I had a few flowers but nothing else. I've fed them and watered them but nothing. This seems to be a pattern with me, the first year I plant anything, it doesn't come up. Hopefully next year.
