So..... here we are with Christmas boot toppers.
I had just a bit of sock yarn left from years ago in this colorway...when it dawned on me...its perfect for boot toppers.
I think Irisheyes Lynn gave me this yarn years ago.
Yes, I know it is finally April and I'm sitting on the screened porch enjoying a 70 degree day...
but when the knit spirit moves you and you happen to have
Christmas yarn... You go for it.
Cast on 60 in 2 by 2 rib for 5 or 6 inches.
Do that twice.
This is blooming.
I cut our roses bushes back yesterday.
I wore gloves.
The thorns got to me anyhow.
Lots of little swear words graced the garden, but now it is done.
I lost one rosebush to the winter.
I intend to plant 3 new bushes in May.
We plant Knock out roses that need very little pampering.
I want to expand my garden color way from all red flowers
with green leaves...
to perhaps some coral colors, or yellow.
So that's the lazy post from the porch....
first one of 2015!
