Yay gentle arts! What a wonderful event to look forward to.

I crochet, don't knit, & my granddaughter had tons of hand made blankets she then used for her dolls when she was older.

That's a great idea. I just found a pattern to knit a baby sack that looks like a peapod. The kids are calling the baby chickpea, so, I can't wait to make it.

My knitting needles are going at warp speed.
Congrats! Thirty-two years ago, today I found out I was going to be a grandpa. I wasn't particularly happy as my son and his gf were very young. Once my granddaughter was born, my thoughts changed. I didn't think those kids were going to make it. But they are still together.

Worked in the garden this morning starting about 5am before it got to 100 degrees. Pulled weeds, played in the dirt. Everything is doing really well, except for my kale, romaine lettuce and spinach which the rabbits ate. That's ok, in another few weeks I'll have tomatoes, peppers, squash, onions, and later this year cantaloupe and watermelon.
