Hi, Y'all! I trust you had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. We took a little road trip to Virginia for a visit with Youngest & her husband. We shopped Saturday, went to church on Sunday then we were able to get most of her garden planted yesterday before we started home. She wanted tomatoes, onions, corn & pepper plants. Can you guess who forgot to take pictures? Ah well. Here's a look at a few of my multiplying onions that were planted last fall. They look like any other green onions until they start to multiply; then they seed out at the top & you have new sets for your next crop. Isn't that cool. We've been using them all spring since early March. We love these onions so I try to keep a constant supply of them by rotating plantings every season except in the wintertime. I harvested several tops this mornin' to be planted in about a month.
After seeing all the great bags Melanie has made I had to knit one up for myself. I used the Everlasting Bagstopper pattern with Sugar & Cream yarn in their Swimming Pool colorway. Self shot using the bathroom mirror. ;) (How do you like my new pink & green towels...chuckles.)
I wanted a handle that would be hefty enough to grab onto so I double stranded the yarn, used size 5 needles & alternated stockinette with garter stitches. It's 18 inches long & two inches wide. Will it hold much? I'm amazed how much the body of the bag will stretch. Here it's holding 19 balls of yarn & lookin' kinda goofy, but you get the idea.
Have a great springy-knitty week, Y'all! :)
