All in a Days Work

Did I say I wanted that sock finished by today? Hmm, well wanting is one thing I suppose, although I am about to turn the heel so I am very close to getting it done.
But this weekend was beautiful and I really only managed about an hours worth of knitting all weekend at least up until this point. I plan to go knit after I post this.

Yesterday, we enjoyed some time at the Farmers Market, we bought some mulch for the flower boxes which we put out today. And I bought a nice watermelon.

Today the hubby built me a box for cleaning my fleece. I think he did a nice job. I can shake plant material out of the fleece a little easier with this.



We built some more flower/vegtable boxes today (I didn't get a picture of those yet.) and checked the progress of everything. The pink climbers in the back has started to bloom here is the first of the season.Sorry if it is a little blurry there was a breeze today.

Here is what it looked like last year.

The Tiger Lilies are just about ready too.

In other news I have contacted Ashford regarding my problems with the spinning wheel and I am convinced it is not totally me. As I was able to spin on a different wheel (Kromski). The folks at Ashford have been extremely nice and helpful and are sending me replacement parts for free with advice on how to make certain adjustments.
I have nothing but good things to say about their customer service, they have been wonderful and I'm confident that with the new brakeband and springs I will be spinning away in no time.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
Happy Knitting!

LOL! I thought you built a squirrel feeder :). Customer service trouble, that's too bad, you would think in today's world they would want to make things right. I hope you can get your spinning wheel working properly, it amazes me there are people who are willing to take the time to use one, you must be very talented!.

That Climber ROse is just fantastic, what is it Celeste? New Dawn? What are you feeding it? It looks amazing. Like the way you set up the FO knitting... Great show! (and you have a friend with angora and sheep?... lucky you!)
Hugs, and thanks for all wonderful comments you always give me on my blog. I really apprechiate that.
