Squash and knitting. That’s an interesting combination.

Ugh. I’m just having the hardest time getting decent pictures with the camera in this phone. I might just start using the old camera with lens damage again.

Anyway, this has been a very hard week. Lots of worry for someone close to me, a fair amount of writing but I did get to do a little bit of craft.

First and foremost, I finally finished this blanket!

Much as I like the color and feel of that yarn, the quality wasn’t all that great in places. I keep finding spots that need to be cleaned up.

Ah well. The lap blanket is pretty, and that’s all that matters.

I’ve managed to get a few more rows done on my dragon scarf, too.

Maybe I’ll actually be able to get more work done this weekend/next week. Who knows?

Lastly, of course, I did manage to cook that squash. Those two veggies are providing a lot more food than I thought they would. Gonna need to do more squash experiments in the future.

In season veggies are so much less expensive in stores, which means winter squash is a great way to eat healthy while saving money.

Like I’d mentioned in that entry, I plan on trying to grow my own squash from seed this year. We’ll see how that goes, huh?

Perhaps I’ll get that started this weekend. I hear the seedlings grow very quickly when started indoors, so maybe it’s worth it to wait? I don’t know. Our growing season is so short and unpredictable. We’ve had frosts last into May before, so that makes starting seeds indoors a little tricky.

Anyway, happy weekend, all! Hard to believe it’s almost March already.
