On the Needles

I need to stay home on a Friday to post an "on the needles" post.  Too many road trips the last couple weeks and a couple all by myself.  I do enjoy driving alone and taking in the scenery,  South Dakota is so green right now which means things are growing so lots of time has also been spent in the garden pulling weeds. The planting is done and to my surprise I found rows of potatoes coming up.  Last year I planted blue potatoes and I remember being disappointed by the yield, well apparently it wasn't the yield as much as it was my digging.  They were the same color as the dirt and they were small so I missed a bunch.  The up side I didn't have to plant potatoes.  Back to the needles.....socks for oldest son are done, I need to get them in the mail today.  I knit some bottle socks and reading mitts to add to the stack and I started a Laura Aylor sweater called Sun Rose with an Elsebeth Lavold yarn called Hempathy it is hemp, cotton and modal.  Its a little stiff to work with but after it is washed it is soft and has a very nice drape. Linking to Judy's OTN.  --Ann--
