I am going to show how I cast on for a knitted top down hat. This has a lot of pictures to show the method. I use the Magic ring Method usually used in Crochet.

 The picture below shows that I tied the string that was hanging with the working yarn to secure the circle. I usually just knot the end in so I don't have to weave it in later.
 This picture below shows after I have knitted a few rows and did some increases.
 The picture below shows a hat well on its way!!
 God Bless You All!!

I made this little lacy dress for my 3 year old granddaughter!!

She just loved it too!!

Today we have rain. I think the rainy season has started.
Yesterday I got to sprinkle some Turnip seeds out in the garden. Hopefully they will grow plenty this year.

I am working on a Tunisian Crochet blanket for another granddaughter. I hope to get it done soon!!

She picked out the colors, and wanted it stripey.

You all have a great day!!
God Bless You!!

We have been picking Blueberries!!

 As you can see some are as big as quarters!!
 Ready for the freezer!!
They are doing well this year especially since I got some pine needles to put around them as mulch. They just love those pine needles!!

I saw these baskets at the local ASU Farmer's Market. I am going to try making them. They are made from Pine needles and Raffia.

It is very interesting to watch the lady that makes them. And she is so willing to teach others!!

I am working on a Light Sage sweater. I crocheted the front top to give it a little bit of a lacy look. I am knitting the rest of it, because I like the stretch of knit.

I have been harvesting leaf lettuce from the garden. We have been having a lot of rain here the last couple of days.
I replaced a blueberry bush and an Eggplant where others have died.  At least today is not so very hot since we are having the rain.
Have a great day!! God Bless You!!
