Day 318/365: Avocado Progress


Even on a cold overcast day, there’s always comfort to be found in small things.  Like the growth spurt and new leaves of an avocado seedling that you’ve been nurturing for weeks.

Day 295/365: Avocado Seedling

I haven’t been able to make much progress on my sock over the last few days.  I’ve only knitted a couple of rows, and it wouldn’t make for a very interesting photo.  So here is something more interesting instead.  Remember my avocado seed that I’d been attempting to sprout?

It’s coming up nicely.

Day 274/365: The Sprouting Avocado Seed

This week I have been alternating between knitting a few rows on the Green Print sock and knitting a couple of rows on the Cherry Cola afghan.  I knit using the Continental style along with the magic loop method.  Combined, the two approaches make for faster knitting.  Still, it’s slow going.  I could share pictures of my progress, but they would be pretty boring photos.  Luckily, I discovered something very cool this afternoon when I got home, so I’ll share a photo of that instead.

My avocado seed is sprouting!
