I began knitting a Fledging Featherweight for Coralee this week. I’m using Quince & Co linen in the colorway Truffle (yarn from my now-frogged Kit Camisole–sad story for another day). Fledging is a Knitbot pattern I bought as part of a trio of popular Knitbot adult patterns sized down for children, fittingly called Little Knitbot. All three patterns are adorable, elegantly written, fun to knit, & require no seaming. It’s knitting up amazingly fast considering how little time I’ve had to knit lately.
Finally picked up The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society novel from the library. Still haven’t cracked the book (embarrassing). Also reading the fall Seed Savers newsletter/magazine–my favorite part of being a Seed Savers member. The stories of real people saving seeds, as well as the histories behind heirloom varieties is always fascinating to read. Rich photographs & yummy recipes, too. I harvested my fall crop of French Breakfast radishes yesterday. They’re so beautiful, I had a hard time cutting them up! I think I will only plant this variety next spring. They grew amazingly fast & the ‘finger’ shape made the root a breeze to pull. The white tips blending into the scarlet–a work of art growing in your soil! Hoping my lettuce comes ready soon, too. A couple of our chickens–our fluffy Blue Cochin named Marianne & a nameless Americana–hung nearby the garden gate while I harvested & then followed me around the yard afterwards….it’s not like we don’t feed them, beggars.
