Food is not the only thing I make. I knit and crochet, and grow all kinds of produce in my garden. I decided that these things also deserve a place on my blog. Therefore you can expect regular garden updates from now on, and posts about finished knit/crochet projects.
At our new house we have a much larger garden than at our old house. But the person living here before us did not grow fruit, vegetables and herbs, so it will take loads of work to change part of the garden to a vegetable plot. We decided to wait with this big project until next year, so that we can get to know the garden this year, and will know better if the plans we have will work. For now, I created a small herb garden by removing some ornamental plants, and I will create some space for vegetables by moving some ornamental plants to other spots. I’m really happy that I do have the space to grow some (cutting) flowers, something I did not have in our old garden. I love flowers, but I always hesitate to buy them, so growing them myself would probably work very good.
Generally I work on one crochet project and one knitting project at the same time, so that I can switch between them. I try not to work on more than two projects at a time, because I do like to finish things every once in a while. I’ve got quite a stash of beautiful yarns and a long list of projects for them, and it is lovely to finish something, but most of the fun is in the knitting/crocheting itself. I find it very relaxing.
