I'm trying to stay positive about a root canal I get to have in two weeks. Last week I got feverish and just overall yucky feeling. Turns out I had an abscessed tooth. Fun. So I get to have my first root canal. I've never been sedated before -- that's the scary part for me.
In knitting news:
I'm almost finished with the Big Green Monster. 5 more rounds of stockinette and a crocheted bind off. My crochet skills are a bit on the weak side so it may take several tries to pull this one off. And if the crochet is too complicated then I'll do the HRB bind off.
Tony is more than half way done with his Branching Out. He got bored with it and set it aside for a few days to crank out this doily.
It's an unknown worsted weight yarn on size US8 needles. The pattern is: Liz Snella's Heirloom Doily (Ravelry). Now he's obsessed with doily patterns. I think he's turning into an old lady -- about time in my opinion.
We're both loving Herbert Niebling patterns right now. If I get my hands on the Lotus Flower or Oak patterns, watch out!
In gardening news: we got the second and third raised veggie beds built and got the second bed planted. MMMM: Okra, Roma tomato, cucumber, eggplant, radish, chives, and jalapeno.
We also planted a stick. It doesn't look like much now, but it'll be awesome when it grows. More on the mystery stick to come.
Lastly, here is one of the Daffodils. Isn't she a beauty!
