Knitting Deadline

Posted on May 20, 2011. 6 comments

I'm knitting furiously to meet my deadline and this is all the yarn left after knitting samples for 7/8ths of my first book! Since I'm very busy knitting and currently too stressed to write up a recap for Maryland Sheep & Wool this post will serve as a little glimpse into what else is going on in Casa de Fickle.

I got a new computer, a mac. I've switched over to the world of macs and adobe so that I can do justice to my sister's photography. Miriam had taken over 10,000 photos and was damn talented. Over the next weeks and months I'm going to be going through her catalog and figuring out the best way to showcase her art. She had an incredible eye for photography and that should be shared. Stay tuned!

square foot gardening
In between trying to immerse myself into the world of Macintosh I'm also working on my first square foot garden! There will be cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, swish chard, peas, black eyed peas, carrots, (hopefully not mutant) corn, chocolate, tequila, and kale.

heirloom tomatoes
Did I mention tomatoes?

    I agree with Lindsey, please share your secret for growing chocolate and tequila. :)

    Tequila starts in a magical place called Tequila in the state of Jalisco, Mexico in the wondrous blue agave plant. Tequila is made from the agave fruit is fermented in to every one’s favorite party liquor (whiskey?) (gut rot?) and aged from months to years before bottled and shipped to my town in Orange County where I walk out of the store embarrassed by the automated $3 off coupons for 750 ml family sized bottles of Camarena after each shopping trip.

    The chocolate grows in the form of belgian chocolates directly from seed in my square foot garden.
