cold frame that Oz built and it works so well that lettuce and rosemary plants overwintered and lived. Look at all the green! Oz and I have been working in the garden cleaning things up. It feels good to be outside and working in the garden again.
I have also finished a new hat based on the Aran jumper design. I have a few books on this type of knitting and here is a bit from Wikipedia :: (Irish Gaelic: Geansaí Árann) is a style of jumper that takes its name from the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. It is sometimes known as a fisherman's jumper. A classical fisherman's jumper is a bulky garment with prominent cable patterns on the chest, often cream-coloured.
I decided not to use a cable this time but knit a decorative checkerboard pattern instead. I used 100% wool yarn (Aran) from Maggie's Farm. It turned out so well and would be a perfect size for a young girl or teenager. I'm working on another hat with the same pattern but it will fit an adult.
