She definitely needs a new hat, don't you agree? (And I need mine back!)
The ties are an I-cord that also makes a nice finish on the bottom edge.
What's on my needles now, you say? A bunch of things, but I am going to concentrate on my Camp Loopy #3 project, started this morning. It's a vest for a certain someone; the pattern ranges in size from 6 mos. to 12 yrs., so if it turns out well, there will be more to make in the future for 2 other someones.
With the unusually sunshine this July, our garden has kept both of us busy. Enjoying the extra warmth is one of my favorite plants to grow each year, the Black-eyed Susan vine. As you can see, it's headed up to our second story! Each time I look at it I'm reminded of a prettier version of Jack-in-the-Beanstalk!
This year's flowers are sort of a peachy color with a dark center; all the other years before they have been orange and black. It was a surprise this time! If you've not tried this plant, it's very fun to watch. See you next time! Meanwhile, don't forget to check out Patchwork Times for some knitting inspiration.
