Rogue snapdragons

Did some weeding over the weekend. Noticed some flowers blooming in the small patch between the front stoop, driveway and walkway. Snapdragons. Short ones. Yellow and white. I did not plant them, but they seem to be taking over the space. Don't know where they came from, but I like them.


Word of advice to any novice hop farmers: When harvesting, wear long pants and long sleeves. Latex gloves are encouraged. Exposed skin will get scratched and *oh so itchy*.....


Nearly done with Kel's first sock. Turns out that I will have more yarn left than I expected. I'll probably use the extra for socks for my nieces. The 4-year-old wants very tall socks. Good thing about toe-up is that she can try them on as I work them. I need to learn the two-at-once method of sock knitting. There's lots I need to learn. I'm currently trying to learn continental knitting, which will make ribbing stitches so much easier! Tomorrow is knitting group - we'll see what they think of my tote bag colors.

Anyhow, I'm going to sit outside for a while and enjoy the nice weather.
