Proof of actual knitting! I have it. Hubbs and I went camping last weekend with our off road club and I actually got some knitting done. Normally I take something but never actually get any time to work on it. This trip we mostly stayed in camp and relaxed. I even got to take a nap! Shocking! I actually finished the Pomatous socks that I'd been working on for the last month yesterday.

Pattern: Pomatous by Cookie A.
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Heritage Hand painted
Started: 03/16/09
Finished: 04/22/09

I also gots proof of actual things growing in my new garden!! When we got home on Sunday I was a bit disappointed that not a whole lot had come up while we were gone. But when I got up on Monday and went out to water a lot more had come up.
Morning glories.

Zinnias

Sunflowers

Now I'm just waiting for the pole beans, carrots, lettuce and basil to come up. Just planted those on Monday so I'm going to have to wait for a while longer. The pumpkin is putting on more leaves and getting a bit bigger every day. The watermelon is waiting for a bit warmer temperatures before it takes off but it's doing good so far! The only thing I'm missing right now is mint. I'm on the look out for some but I'm trying to find someone who's willing to give me some outta there garden.

This coming weekend is going to be a gardening, knitting & sewing weekend. I'm planning on getting some petunias to finish out the front garden and I want to get some fabric to make reusable grocery bags and I need to knit myself up a new scarf for using on the motorcycle. I've started riding to work again and it's still cold in the morning. Right now I have a scarf that I use but the dang thing is so long that it's more of a pain then it is anything else. I'm planning on knitting up a short scarf that will button in the front.
It's going to be another busy one! Hopefully there will be some rest in there too!
