The fourth time’s a charm. At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself. I’ve now casted on this curtain for the fourth time adding one extra repeat to make it just a bit wider. I’m absolutely convinced that this one will be the right size and I shouldn’t make any more mistakes, after all I’ve knit this 3 times already.
Yesterday the weather was gorgeous so we filled up the blow-up pool in the back yard and while the kids ran in and out of it splashing all over to cool off, I was able to work on my curtain. The casing is now done and I’m almost at the point where I stopped my 3rd try.
Oh and because you might like chocolate as much as much as I do and because it may land on your hips as it does on mine, I’m showing you the newest edition to my garden.
This lovely little flower is my new Choca Mocca plant. My neighbor came home with one of these for her garden and just had to show me. She’s velvety brownish red and soo pretty but as you can imagine that’s now why I had to run out and buy one of my own. No, it’s because when she’s out in the sun she smells just like chocolate. Roses pale in comparison with this sweet smell, it’s really yummy. Maybe smelling her off and on during the day and the fact that my running shoes have been back in action will keep those pounds from settling on my hips.
