Market Knitting and Zoe's New Idea

Haymaker Farmers Market - Kent

How fortunate we are in Kent to have such a diverse little outdoor market to visit every Saturday morning.  It is like a neighborhood block party since you get to know all the vendors and are always running into someone you know.  It's one of the highlights of my week.

In case anyone is wondering, I am still attempting to knit a sock; I have not given up.  However, my sock has not grown much because every couple of rounds I run into a snag or a dropped stitch, or I'm going the wrong direction (4 needles) etc.  Thank goodness for the help, kindness and encouragement from my knitting mentor, Carol.  It amazes me how she can fix anything that I have messed up - at least in the knitting department.  Yesterday, Saturday, it was a lovely day to sit and knit and listen to the band, Rio Neon.  They were awesome!  Click Here to learn more about them!

Flowers were everywhere at the market this week. 

Zoe's New Idea:

My granddaughter Zoe came up with some "nature" based activities this weekend.  One of her ideas was to make Potpourri from flowers and herbs that we have in our yards.  She picked a lot of different plants and we hung them up on the porch to dry.  Now we wait and see what happens!  

Next week is Zoe's birthday and she will be 10 - double digit!  What fun to have such a creative granddaughter.
