A Fingerless Glove

If I ever wanted to start sewing again I needed to get some of the knitting out of my system.  So I made the main item I wanted to knit, fingerless glove.

So last Sunday I completed one of my fingerless glove the pattern is by Maggie Smith Easy Fingerless Mitts, doing the cuff took a while to complete because I did a gazillion ripping back to get it how I wanted it.

Once the glove was complete, I was fine with showing off just the one glove LOL everyone at work admired it, but there is a big fact I needed to make another for my other hand, I will get to the second glove some time soon, I hope.

I am hearing that this is a dilemma some knitters face knitting gloves and socks, you make one and have no motivation to make the other.  So how does one remain motivated to make that second glove or sock, I see I have some research ahead of me.

(P.S. Summer 2013 I completed the other hand of this glove and gave to my son as a gift)

Install Rain Barrel and Compost Tumbler

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
