Coming along...

Finished knitting Mom's Tuscany shawl yesterday, just hours before they had to leave. It's shown here in its unblocked state. I had to send it along with Mom with some instructions on how to bring it to its full potential.

No Sheep For You's Tuscany Shawl. Size 6 circular needles (Knit Picks Harmony), Ella Rae Silkience, color 07. I'm very pleased.


In gardening news, I was so busy getting ready for guests last week that I didn't get adequate rabbit fencing around the raised bed. They got the early spinach unfortunately. All they left were little nubs, but they seem to be coming back already.

Dad decided to make a nice fortress for the bed while he was here. He and Andy took a few hours to make two removable frames and put in some wire mesh. So far so good.

More and more is popping up: spinach of course, peas coming on strong, and lots of lettuce. Still waiting on the onions and carrots though.
