So I have been hard at work on a larger, laceweight version of my new pattern - still provisionally called Pie Crust
This is in Jaggerspun Zephyr (Fiddlesticks) Wool-Silk 2/18 that was a gift ages ago. It takes approximately 700 yards of this lovely 2-ply laceweight yarn. This version also has beads randomly placed in the inner border.
That bare fence and heap of mud is waiting for a delivery of manure and a rotivator before becoming a gorgeous bed of flowers and herbaceous shrubs. We'll have lupins, gladioli, massive bouncy dahlias, sweet williams and random handfuls of flower seeds and will complement the big bed of roses on the other side of the lawn. I like things in the garden to work as cut flowers for the house or food. Himself rather likes decorative shrubs but I don't really see the point.
At the end of that empty bed is a big pond with lots of fish and two new ghost koi which has a Japanese planting scheme (sort of). Himself has been doing a ton of work over the last couple of weeks to sort out the garden so pictures will follow
