You know how you just love your children so much you could almost eat them up? Especially when they are babies? Well, I am feeling almost like that about Eve's Temptation. I don't have anything excitingly new to show you as but I am so enjoying knitting it. I love the color. I love the beads. I love the way the edge curves so sinuously.


 I love the little snakey heads and the little trees. 


And I am so going to love the center. I have about 5 more repeats of the little trees before I start the center. Are you excited? I am!

For those interested in the specifics of the beads and the yarn:

Yarn is Dream in Color Baby -- color Spring Tickle

Beads: Whimbeads 8/0 seed bead mix -- English Garden Mix

Today it's kind of gray and cool --

                  Sept. 12

I caught one of the boats leaving this morning and a little while later the small cruise ship that comes here every week through the summer sailed out too. We'll be seeing fewer and fewer boats moored in the harbor in the weeks to come until we are back to the 2 or 3 that stay there all winter.

So I am making a small batch of tomato sauce from our bounty of tomatoes. Now I know some people peel the tomatoes and remove the seeds and all but I like every part of them so I just crudely chop them and set them to simmer with some wine, olive oil, salt, basil and oregano.


And on the counter are just a few of the many many cucumbers waiting for me to make pickles. These are Boothby Blondes -- they turn orange when they are mature. A nice mild cucumber that I really like.


I got some nice French canning jars for them and will be making sweet and sour refrigerator pickles of these guys.

Now Eve is calling. I hope to have her out to be test knit in a month to 6 weeks. I debate with myself over whether I need to have completed half of it first and so far, the side that says yes, I do is winning out.
