What if I show you this progress shot?
No? What if I tell you that the project also involves a connection with White Tiger basmati rice? Still no? I guess you'll have to wait until it's finished and I can take a shot of the piece in action. :-)
It's been lovely not having a wedding quilt to worry about these last couple of weeks. I've gone away for weekends and although I've taken handwork or knitting with me, I've not felt any pressure. The Knitting Olympics were fun and I finally managed to learn how to do Kitchener stitch (grafting) which was a great thing.
I've been pulling lots of stuff out of the garden in the last week or so. The soil is pretty crappy in places and in desperate need of a good dose of compost. This coupled with a desire to get rid of the plants that were just annoying me anyway has led to some pretty drastic culling (and the odd relocation) of plants.
