A blue blanket



I know this isn't a very good photo of the blanket I made today, I took the shot in the late afternoon and the sky was threatening rain, so the blues in the blanket look more grey than blue.
Then I brought it inside to take some photos for the Etsy shop, and I am not very happy with these either.

I hoped to have it finished before the weekend.

I have busy gardening plans for this weekend, lots of weeding, weeding, weeding. Traditional Labour Weekend is usually time when all the gardeners in New Zealand plant their seedlings and potatoes and peas, so that they will be ready in time for the kiwi Christmas dinner. Mine have been in for a few weeks now, but I think I have to replant the peas, the snails have got to them first.

Then again I might not be weeding, if it is raining again, I could be stuck inside with a good book, my knitting and listening to music like this....Ravel String Quartet .
Have a great weekend !

The blanket looks great - In Germany ist is raining and cold - I have garden plans too - I have to cut down everything and rake the leaves. :-(

In Nova Scotia I'm busy un-gardening, preparing for winter. But I'll listen to the Ravel in any weather!

Lovely blanket, I have great plans for gardening this weekend. I purchased my tomatoes last week and sowed my seedlings of other stuff a few weeks ago so I'm all ready to go. Off to the farmers market this morning first though, then gardening, knitting and sewing all weekend. Hopefully :)

Enjoy your weekend

Wisconsin checking in: rake and wheelbarrow at the ready. If I wait long enough, the snow will cover it all up until spring--very convenient! But a mess to clean up later, and so it goes.

I think the blanket looks absolutely beautiful, I particularly like the photo where it is rolled up.
