In other news ... I've been knitting myself some sweatbands. With sock yarn.
I have a large head, and none of the commercially-available headwraps/bands fit me ... so I did what any enterprising knitter would do. Made some for myself!
Mostly garter stitch ... but the one on the right is seed stitch. They stay on, soak up the moisture, and are much more comfortable than the sweat rolling into my eyes! I wear them when I run...I might make some from cotton to see if they are more absorbent. I don't want to get breakouts on my forehead.
Aside from knitting headbands and gardening ... that's about it!
The overflowing herb garden ... survived last winter, and has been severely pruned twice!
And this years' vegetable garden. I'm trying to be a bit more conservative than I normally am, and I only planted 7 things in this little space. Three tomatoes, cucumber, basil, and parsley. That's six .... oh, and eggplant. It was originally going to be two tomato, but I found a tomato sprout in the front, where I haven't grown tomatoes for two years, and I'm insanely curious as to what it could be. Supersweet 100? Yellow heirloom? Juliet? Margarita? Jellybean? I can't wait to see what it is! I hope it's not Juliet or Margarita, because I'm already growing those!
I have to be honest. I'm probably going to try to squeeze some sort of squash in here, too.
