Some things

Due to some small problems with blogger, this post went up without text and is now a week late. Sorry. Thanks to Lucinda and Rachel for commenting anyway!

First off, this is my brother-in-law's VW Beetle. It is sitting in my backyard. I want it out of my back yard. If you are interested in purchasing such a vehicle, here's the dirt. It's a 1966, it's got a dual carb bored out 1675 engine that is fairly new and has about 3000 miles on it. He has done a lot of work on it and is a mite picky about who it will go to. If you are interested, and understand what a "dual carb bored out 1675 engine" means, please email me at sarahk8queen at yahoo dot com and I'll pass your info on to him. I will be eternally grateful to the person who removes this thing from my parking pad.

Here we have the sprout, swaddled in all his glory. I put the mobile up on his crib this week. He is now old enough to see it, and he seems enchanted.

Here's a bunch of weird novelty yarn that my sister-in-law brought me from Chicago. She got it at the dollar store. I'm thinking: crazy hats, with fuzzy trim. Baby sized of course. Also, I may make some scarves and hats for the stuffed animals I'm making. Pictures of them soon!

Here's a shot of my garden for this year. My father-in-law planted tomatoes and three kinds of peppers for me right after the sprout showed up, since I was in no way going to be able to get anything in the ground. I need to weed. I also need to start planning for changes in next year's garden. I'm thinking raised boxes so I can navigate them better, and so our little sprout will be able to help a bit. he's already very interested in whatever mama does in the morning with the dirt.

Last but not least, here's my current knitting. On the left we have some Regia in a double blue colorway that I am trying to work out a simple cable pattern for. I'm not sure if I'm going to just rip this out and start over, I can't concentrate on cables yet. On the right is the first of my summer socks for this year. I haven't cast on for the second, this is the first time I've experienced second sock syndrome. It stinks.

Awww! Swaddly baby bundles & original bugs both bring back happy memories. Looks like Spring, that's for sure.

Sprout looks so content in that picture.
