This week I have been out in the yard planning, dreaming and feeling a touch overwhelmed. You see I am not one of those people who can visualize the end result of a plan. I am almost always in a state of surprise about how things turn out. So I admit I need planning help. I dream of making our lot into a wild secret garden type place. So I have been reading as much as I can about permaculture & organic gardening. The books above are Rodale's Ultimate Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening, Gaia's Garden & a seed catalogue from West Coast Seeds. This has in turn left little time for knitting. I did manage to cast on for one of my favorite patterns though, it's called the Little Turtle Knits Pilot Cap. I love it, it's so well fitting and covers little ears perfectly. I am using natural Cestari yarn.
Many thanks to Ginny of Small Things for hosting this fantastic Yarn Along every week.
