lettuce, originally uploaded by enting.

My computer is completely nonfunctional (not accepting charge) for a little over a week now. I’m told that fixing it will cost hundreds of dollars that I don’t have. Otherwise, most of life is good, or at least not worse than last week…

One of the good bits was last weekend’s trip to NYC, during which I went to the Red Hook Community Farm with a few of my friends–it’s a really cute farm, topsoil placed on what looks like it used to be a parking lot. Nearly all of their produce was incredibly tempting–just about everything, that is, except for the watermelons that were full of rat holes. Ah, well. The lettuce and kale and peppers and pumpkins (et cetera) were all lovely.

Knitting-wise, I’ve been working on a Secret Group Project and the Peacock Feather Shawl, plus I started Icarus out of the yellow/orange/brown mohair blend that I dyed on dye-day.
