So, this is what I've been up to...

I went shopping yesterday and bought some time herb plants, potting soil, several clay pot and a little shrub. I re-potted the tiny herbs into larger pots so they have room to grow and just re-potted the shrub in a clay pot.


As for knitting, I've started the LBT and have decided to make it a hybrid of a design, Lelah, I saw on Craftster(like another Craftster did). I'm doing the the Lelah lace (fishtail lace) pattern and the LBT top. Lace knitting takes forever!!! I've been working on it on and off for the last couple of days and I barely have two inches to show for it.


I sent my mom a pic of my completed Rusted Root and she loved it!!! I'm thinking of making her one for her birthday next month. I have the yarn...I just have to knit it! Maybe I'll CO for that tonight. I don't have to swatch because I'm using the same yarn as before and I was able to get gauge easily. Since she's smaller than I am, her sweater will be smaller therefore knit up quicker. I hope that I can gt it done. She'd be so happy!

Pretty! And neat idea - tweaking the lace on the LBT.

I can't wait to see your hybrid finished. I want to do something very similar, but I just haven't picked that one up yet. Maybe that will be my next cast-on. What yarn and gauge are you using for the LBT and Lelah?

The hybrid is going to look great! I think your mom would love that sweater - especially in that lovely color. Don't you just love plants?
