I have been knitting some necessities while watching the Olympics each evening. The first must have home project are felted coasters. I found the pattern in the May issue of Creative Knitting Magazine. I worked on these while cheering for the the historic men's 400 relay. That was an awesome moment in sporting history!
I puchased Bernat Felting Natural Wool yarn at Hobby Lobby. The colorway is called Happy Bouquet.
I did notice that this yarn bleeds quite a bit. The felting process fades the color.
I have picked 4 peaches from one of my peach trees. I know what you are thinking.....I should have a bushel of peaches by now. Let me show you why I don't.
We have been invaded by Japanese Beetles. I have never seen anything like this infestation before. We have them by the thousands.
In one day they ate all of the leaves on my plum tree. One day!
We have 4 traps set near the garden. In 12 hours one of the traps were filled to overflowing. Even my DH was totally grossed out as he changed the old bag to dispose of them. The sight is like something out of a horror movie. I have to say that the sight would gag a maggot!
