I realized that I had never posted a photo of the 'naughty deer' hat that I had knitted for a friend. *I had knitted when I was living in Germany... (slow internet that did not like posting photos to blogs). I had found a photo of this hat pattern that someone else had knitted on the Internet and I sent it 'as a joke' to a friend who not only was a 'hunter' but his job was that of being a 'hunting guide.'
The next thing I know... he is begging for me to knit him a hat too. I never thought he'd wear something like this- but, I did knit it and here is the result.
And, now back in Italy.... look at what I bought...
The basil plant that I bought. I have now replanted him in a bigger flower pot. I need to buy more fresh herbs so I can start having a herb garden. Of course, part of the problem is... when I go to the states during the summer... I won't have anyone to water things. This is the side of my house and the brick area is my driveway. My garage has ceramic tiles. Makes me not want to park on it.
