Fiber Friday - With Plants

Sunflowers! Wonderful, beautiful sunflowers to brighten our yard!

I haven't done a Fiber Friday in awhile, so I figured I would share what I've been working on this week along with what's sproutin' 'round here.

What I've dubbed the "Babylove Blanket", for friends of ours having their first little one. I'm just over half way - with three square sections and the border to go. I'll be making up and offering this pattern later.

Basil! I love basil, especially in pesto form. I'll be growing a lot this year. This is one of the surviving peat pots with sprouts, after my littlest man found them warming on the porch.

The current Mystery Shawl based on the book Around The World in 80 Days. I love mystery shawls, but I hate waiting for the clues!

Hollyhocks, which were also found by the little man. He likes to rip out plants. I replanted them and they seem to be doing well.

The previously mentioned 2-years-waiting mystery shawl. I know it's not much to look at now, but I wanted to show the pretty contrast of the bronze beads on the white yarn.

My maters are sproutin'! Yay!!

Have a wonderful Friday,

Your little seedlings look so nice. So glad you have such nice things growing and I love your fiber Friday things.
Every thing looks so good.

Despite the best efforts of toddlers, the garden marches on! Your knitting is wonderful, too. I never knew you could add beads, and it makes it look even more classy.

Beautiful knitting and basil is my favorite herb.

I loved your random post. I so agree with you about the old ways. We all need to learn more of them.

Enjoy the lovely weather, planting and knitting!
