This is the motley collection of pots that I have set up in our building's parking lot. In this picture we have radishes, cilantro, chocolate habanero, mini bell pepper, tomato, kale, chocolate mint, oregano, and more. But the thing I'm most excited about this year is that other neighbors are joining in on the gardening fun! It's been great to see pots of all sorts of edibles and flowers popping up in the parking lot.
Do you guys garden? What are you growing this year?

At a crafty get-together this past weekend, my friend Trinity had a couple of her beautiful handknit sweaters to destash because they were too big for her. I'm super psyched because I've admired the pattern (Goodale) for quite a while, but as you guys probably know, I'm not really a sweater knitter. So yay, and thanks again to Trinity!
What do you guys do with handknit items that don't quite work for you?

Of course, anything I put on the dining table, Ritz has to investigate. The yarn was a gift from my husband for Christmas, it's a kit for the rainbow version of the blanket. This will be one of my twelve stash projects for the year and my very first knit blanket, yay!
have you knit or crocheted a blanket before?

Three skeins of Origami, a Berroco yarn. I just had to buy these guys, the yarn is super pretty and it was half off! You know I can't pass up a yarn deal. I'm not sure what I'll make with it, but I think it will be used for my very first weaving project. I bought a Cricket loom the other day and I'm just itching to learn how to weave!
Do any of you guys weave? Does yarn speak to you in the store?

I finally finished my stripey cowl! I love how it turned out, it's super comfy and the colors are bright and happy (much brighter than the photo implies). It's my second project of the year in the stash challenge going on in the Twin Cities Ravelry group. I can't believe I'm on track for finishing 12 stash projects in a year, but I guess it's only February so I shouldn't get too cocky...
What are you guys working on?

But overall, things are good if not stressful, but that's life, right? I'll be back soon with a more substantial post (I'm thiiiiiiis close to finishing a cowl I've been knitting for a while) but I wanted to pop in and say hi. Hi! And I'll end with a random picture of my cat, Ritz, being adorable during a cold snap we had a few weeks ago:
