Almost done

After a long day away from computers, housework and distractions, I recently finished the knitting, seaming and end-weaving of my Paulie cardigan.

I swatched for this in June 2012 and started knitting in September 2013... I'd wanted to add a hood to it and that's really what ate all the time up. I must have knit 3 or 4 hoods before I found something I was happy with.

And the almost? I haven't actually sewn the buttons on :)

Last weekend I finally found a moment to get excited about the garden.

 For the first time I visited a garden centre with gardening in mind (and also lunch) and I came away with probably more seeds than I really needed.

I planted a whole bunch of things pretty much the moment I got home. A few beans, leeks and pak choi into the bed and a wide variety of bits and bobs to start in pots.

Yesterday my first sproutling popped up from the soil.

This is a Dahlia 'Yam', hopefully the first of many green things to come.
