Knitting, Crocheting Notions and Stash

I have accepted the inevitable that I like knitting and a bit of crocheting so that means I will be buying notions and creating a bit of stash.


My Stash
I bought some medium weight yarn for flowers making, additional crochet hooks, and knitting needle, I invested in the Clover Chibi darning needles that will work better than the elastic threader I was using prior, stitch markers which will help keep me on track when I advance to more complicated knitting projects, and I did not stop there I made some additional purchases.

While searching online for more info on knitting I came across this fabolous video on a brand of yarn by Red Heart Yarns called Boutique Sashay.  How could I resist learning how to knit with Sashay, I just love saying the word Sashay, Sashay.

I figure knitting is one of those skills if you do not use it you could lose it.  So should I take a break from knitting, and forget some of the technique, the I can't believe I'm knitting book will help remind me how to knit, purl, increase and decrease, the instuctions are large, clear, and in color.

 
I bought a nice craft light that I can use for many projects, it also has a magnifier attach, can't wait to break that out.

Install Rain Barrel and Compost Tumbler

Growing up we always had rain barrels, and this growing season, I wanted to incorporate a rain barrel in my garden and added composting for a bit of sustainability. A local botanical garden offers free classes on sustainability, using native plants and rain garden.


I thought of doing a DIY rain barrel but with all the planting I was doing, a bit of help is worth it, so I bought a rain barrel and compost tumbler, got a good deal from my town.



Lots of research online later, I found the perfect downspout rain water collection system by Oatey to channel the water to my barrel. I bought 2 Oatey system so I may make that DIY rain barrel yet :-).



I started with building the stand for the barrel on a Sunday. I used concrete 12in x 12in stepping stone pavers and 4in x 8in pavers, I created a pattern and stack them, I did use pieces of slate to level the barrel. I kept the stand low so I did not need to make it permanent, I like that I can move it anytime I wish.


I dd not have enough pavers on …
