I’m super tired today so let’s just talk shall we? How was your weekend? Full of knitting I hope πŸ™‚

I know that Mondays are for my big project show off, but after that cabled sweater I thought I needed a break. Don’t get me wrong – I have been knitting, just not so much. And I had this feeling that I need to finish some of my U.F.O.s.

First of all, I wanted to finish my socks. Well, one sock actually. Knitting these fantastic socks isn’t as easy and fantastic as you may think…

Knitting my "Anelmaiset" socks and loving itΒ Hand knitted and very colorful fair isle socks

Yes, I know – pictures are bad. But how on earth can you take pictures when you have to be a model? This time I couldn’t talk my daughter in… (she practically ran out of the door when she saw me with my camera)

One sock down, one to go…

And I’m glad to tell you that I still have the most magnificent quality control there can be. See…?

Oh, I just remembered… You may noticed me mentioning that I’m a YouTube gardener. Well, there has been major development on this subject.

*YouTube gardener – person who watches YouTube gardening videos without having a garden of any kind*

I’m now promoted (I promoted myself – just to be clear) from YouTube gardener to windowsill gardener πŸ˜€

Pattern Duchess gardening

That is a tomato. And me, personally, managed to keep it alive. That’s huge one for me πŸ˜€

And lastly, I’ve been finishing up “soon available” pattern that desperately needs a name:

Mittens without a name

Help me please! My “newborn” needs a name… – leave a comment below πŸ™‚Β (and you can also leave any kind of tips on growing tomatoes)

    Suggestion for “Newborn” would be Love & Hugs Mittens, because of the x’s and o’s. Just a thought. I like your quality control. I have one but she distributes my yarn more than controls it.

    I finished the dishcloth sweater I was working on over at Knitting Paradise forums. I just have to sew the shoulder seams and side seams and it will be completely finished.

      It will be fantastic, I’m sure. I personally hate seaming so… I feel for you πŸ˜€

    Congrats on the tomatoes! That’s more than I can do, lol. And your projects are beautiful! Maybe “Mrs. Muir Mitts” was what first came to mind. From the classic “The Ghost & Mrs. Muir”. She doesn’t wear mittens, lol, but the color & style are romantic to me & the movie is a classic romance. Cheers to a bright Monday. πŸ™‚

    Well I so want to suggest Mrs. Marpoles mitts. Not sure of spelling but he is my favorite Agatha Christie detective.

      Oh I love Agatha Christie, but can’t remember this name. Heading on to Amazon right away πŸ˜€ Oh – you meant Marple right? I love her… And this is very good idea, thank you πŸ™‚

    Hugs & Kisses Mitts? As for the tomatoes, don’t overwater or let them get too dry while they’re in the peat pits (what you have them in now). Resist the temptation to plant them outside too early-Google “last frost date” for your area. It will seem very late but trust it?

      Thank you so much! About planting outside – I live in apartment so that problem took care of it by itself πŸ˜€ I believe I already overwatered one, but it hasn’t died on me yet πŸ™‚ And I have total of 6 so I’m not too worried. I guess I’m happy I got this far πŸ˜€ But I’m writing you advice down – I have special section in my notebook for “gardening” πŸ™‚
