So I'm attempting to see if my pixelpipe account works from my phone.

It's been a long time

I have tons of completed knitting pictures, yet not on this computer. My new phone is supposed to be able to blog from it. But it has a crapa** camera. So I am going to try to get those up and ready for viewing. Currently swatching yarn for the textured circle shrug by Stephanie Japel. My guage is slightly off. So I need to change needle sizes.
This year I have been bit by the gardening bug. Out on my balcony I have lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and other assorted plants growing. This past Sunday we were able to eat some lettuce from the garden. I would have had spinach also, but the cat ate a whole crop. Does anyone else's cat eat their vegetables? So I turned my back and went did some thing else. My husband decided he wanted more lettuce which was fine, but instead of picking a little here and there. He gave one plant a buzz cut. Poor plant.

I started it in February and it went on hold for a while. I am just working on a sock for said husband. I have a class next week so I will probably finish it there or maybe I will start another sock. I gave my duel socks to my husband. They fit him better.

Sorry everyone I know I'm late, but life got to me. Last weekend at Hogsmeade didn't go well for me. I got in trouble and had to go back to Hogwart's. As punishment I had to help Madam Pomfrey. (Translation for you non potters: I had to work). My roomies were kind enough to bring me a treat.

I am almost done with my spoilee's packet.
I finished my husband's sweater again. He wanted it longer so I lengthened for him. I will hopefully take pictures today. It turned out great.
