wow. i have SO much knitting to do! i haven't touched my friend's clapotis in weeks. nor have i started on the sweater or booties for her baby girl, who is due to arrive around august 20. but i -did- start a hat to match the mostly-finished baby sweater that was in a box of yarn gifted to my by one of my knitting friends. my godsister just had a baby girl over the weekend so i would like to make something for her as well. not to mention the red scarf (which is a little more than halfway done!). my momma requested 6 dishcloths for her christmas present, those shouldn't take terribly long. i often wish that i was independently wealthy so that i could sit around and knit all day instead of working :-) i think tonight after work i'll get cozy and watch a couple episodes of the 4400 marathon that was on over the weekend. thank goodness for my DVR! either i'll watch that, or one of my other favorite shows, Law & Order: SVU, which is on from 7pm-12midnight.
in other news, my balcony garden is coming along nicely. i've got a couple of peppers that i want to hurry and ripen. the lavender has some new growth coming. i think i should maybe divide it but i'll have to read up and see what's the best time to do that. might have to wait until spring. over the weekend i used some of the flowers and buds to make lavender cookies. they were SO good ... if you have lavender, give these a try!
