Weather report: this week started still with rather warm temperatures and sunshine, then we had a bit of rain, some drop of temperature, and leaving us with second part of the week with mostly some clouds and some sunshine, temps around 22C.
Not bad still, I could do with a little higher temps and some more sunshine, but we still cannoot complain.
We had another "batch"of tomatoes and there is still a harvest to come, may be two. But next year we will keep perhaps 3 or 4 tomatoe plants, not so much as this year. I would like to try also some other veggies.
I watch frequently (well, about every week) on BBC the program Gardener's World and it gives lots of good info, And I saw they had some potatoes growing in a simple container and I would love to try it next year. And perhaps some beans, although they take rather some space. We'll see about that.
I was busy the last few months with knitting a cover/blanket for our couches and one is finished now, it is in grey and white( it makes the room a bit brighter), one is already over one couch, now I have to put together the next one for couch two. I do that when I feel like it(and that isn;t too often I must admit), But it is a kind of boring job in fact and still have to pay attention to do it nice, so I only do it during daytime. In the evening I started now knitting some covers for the pillows. I make them on a light ocher color, it brightens up the covers.
I make them in the same stitch as I used for the covers, very easy stitch but it gives a nice effect, specially if you don;t use too thick yarn.
I use needles of 3 or 3,5 European( in English 10 or 11?, American 2,5 or 4).
I can give you the pattern of it, had to translate it myself from Dutch to English, could find it in english. So here we go:
Multiple of 2
Row 1: knit all
Row 2: * knit 1, slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn back*, repeat between * till end till last 2 stitches, knit those
Row 3: knit all
Row 4: knit 2, * slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn back, knit 1, * and repeat between * till end.
( I do make an edge stitch on each side, so count with that when you cast on the stitches)
Good, I really don;t have much more for now, I am happy to say I just finished yesterday a little new kit for you, so I come not comppletely empty-handed, hahahaha.
Wishing you a great week!
