Pictures to go w/ yesterday's post of A.... is for Accomplishments.

Bumpkin's Monica tank top finished! Details: cast on ? finished September 7 2007. Knitted w/ fushia and Black lullaby yarn by Berrocco. Needles used Cast on and Bind off size 8 US (Also used for the straps). Main Body and ruffle size 7 US. Modified pattern to only one ruffle in the front and made straps longer than the 5 inches called for. Also grafted the straps together. Like the finish better that way. If I remake this: I would definitely make this in the round and longer. this is not a one skein knit w/the Lullaby (in the smallest size I used 1 full ball and less then 1/3 of another in the main color.)

Zucchini bread, using whole wheat flour and grated yellow squash. (it is an accomplishment because i didn't waste the veggie.)

It is possible to grow flowers w/o water. These plants got watered maybe twice after being moved into the green house. The morning glory even flowered. Wished I hadn't missed that one- morning glory flowers are so pretty.

Ok even when you don't water your plants, they still grow!! It's official, my thumb is black!

And Bumkins looks really cute in her tank top! How long will she be able to wear it before it gets too cold??
