Abundant Herbal Chaos and Frantic Knitting
Ah, yes. There was an overabundance of Basil and Spearmint here. I inadvertently allowed the Aerogarden plants a little too much time between trimmings and this is the result. It could be far worse but, if I am to harvest this garden long-term, I must keep them properly trimmed.
Now that they are trimmed, I am watching them like a Harpy Eagle and waiting for the next moment to strike with my cutting tools.
Basils and Spearmint - 5 June 2018 ( photo / image / picture from xantedeschia's Garden )
With my free time, I've been knitting this sweater. I am now, roughly, half finished with the first sleeve. I am hoping to get this first sleeve completed by the end of today. Though, in truth, I dread knitting on the Double Pointed Needles. It isn't that I'm incapable of using them effectively. I've just spoiled myself rotten using small diameter circular needles and/or the Magic Loop method of knitting.
However, sentimentality tugs at my heartstrings in this instance. A good friend of mine sent me the gift of a knitting needle set. I would like to close my sweater off using needles from this set in a gesture of friendship and appreciation.
I will use them eventually. Not right now though.
