UFO Finish February

Here's my completed scarf that I listed in the UFO challenge at Judy's blog.

These two yarns independently, were not my favorite, but when I knitted them together, I liked the way it turned out - just a simple garter stitch (knit every row) scarf.

I'm glad I finished it and I've worn it with this navy jacket. Yeah!! for another finish!!

My little seedlings are growing. This is a variety of lettuce and Asian greens. After they germinate on the heated mat and get a little bit of green growth, they are moved to the 2 inch block of soil.

Due to the freezing weather, these plants are continuing to stay in the house. They would like more sun instead of the  big window and grow lights. Fortunately, I hear that we should get some warmer temperature and sunshine real soon.  

I"m looking forward to getting to know some new vegetables. Many of the garden farmers who are growing in hoop houses are growing Asian greens, all kinds of lettuces, beet greens, Tuscan Kale, etc.and harvesting at baby size to get a tender, sweeter salad mix. In less than a month I plan to be eating baby salad greens from our small unheated hoop house.

It's a snow day or two or three or a week

We're having some beautiful weather in southwest Missouri. Not much fun to be out in it. I keep reminding myself that after winter comes Spring.. Yeah, for spring!

UFO Finish

I am such a procrastinator. I love starting and starting and starting again. Everyday starting something new is so fun, but eventually that will get the best of you and you'll have UFO's (UnFinished Objects) everywhere. There comes a time when you have to make it to the finish. Here's my first finish for the UFO Challenge that Judy ( has given us.  So happy with a finish. Can't wait to start on the next one. Hey, that's another start. Maybe I'll start - grow to like these starts - finishes.

This little lap blanket is going to Operation Quiet Comfort for an injured military soldier.
