Pattern: Bruce from RYC Book Six- Classic Winter
Yarn: RYC Soft Tweed in Blanket

I omitted the yarn overs between the cables on this sweater. Unfortunately, around the time this sweater was finished, I managed to felt 3 of Michael's other sweaters in the washer. FYI- front loaders can felt perfectly well, even on the delicate cycle. At least this sweater was spared.

Ninjago Shirt

Nathaniel is a huge Ninjago fan; and after I saw this pillowcase tutorial on Crazy Little Projects, I was inspired to make him a shirt using the same design.
Instead of applique, I freezer paper stenciled the face using an image I found here.

He's tired but looking forward to wearing this tomorrow.

Mary, Mary, quite contrary

How does your garden grow?


It's growing pretty well. We've had one salad from it as well as some parsley and basil. Everything in the raised bed is from seed, and it's all growing. We'll see what actually develops to where we can eat it. Besides the plants, the kids are learning about garden pests as well. We've already dealt with Japanese beetles and cabbage worms; hopefully there won't be many more.
