It's been quiet at the dive shop the last couple days so I got lots of knitting done. I bought a skein of Lion Brand Organic Cotton yarn a couple Sunday's ago just because I liked the color (and I had a coupon). I searched for a pattern for a dishcloth I liked and finally found one called Oh, So Soft Baby Washcloth. It's a crochet pattern and I have to go buy a contrasting color for the edging, but I like it. It was fun to make and an easy pattern to memorize.
Bandwagon Block #5 is coming along. I finished the miters last night while watching an Auction Hunters marathon. Tomorrow I'll pick up stitches for the first log cabin edge. These blocks are fun to knit and really go fast. I decided to make 12 instead of 10 and 4 half blocks of the background color so I'm nearly half done. Amazing.
Durwood's raspberries are growing fast. Soon he'll be out there patrolling for the first ripe berry, and to repel any berry thieves. He means business when it comes to his raspberries!
I was happy to see this little gold daylily bloom, and the honeysuckle too. You know what that means, don't you?
It means that the hummingbirds come back! And I managed to take one's picture tonight! Can you believe it? I'm so thrilled. It was just dumb luck.
