I decided to switch gears from the crochet items and work on some knitting projects. The recipient's mother is allergic to wool, so I found some yarns of the same weight that were made of plant materials, one of sugarcane and another of bamboo. I think they'll look gorgeous when they are finished and can't wait to get started. Patterns for these will all come out of the same book below.

Well, we had a not so great veggie gardening year, our tomato and squash plants all died early in the season, but a few have kept going. The watermelon growing on one of our vines split after heavy rains this past weekend, but there are a few plants still going. Here is a sampler of the items we picked over the weekend. Nothing like homegrown organic veggies to get me excited about cooking! This particular batch got a stir-fry, a quinoa salad, and a veggie side dish.
