Later that day Jim saw three deer already nibbling on the "new addition to the buffet." That prompted some defensive moves on his part.
In one of the outbuildings there was a large spool of barbed wire left behind by a previous tenant on our acreage. That would serve to protect the corn from depredation!
Not long after that Jim looked again and, good grief!!! there was a deer munching on the pea plants. To be honest, the beds with the pea plants are not completely surrounded by barbed wire.
The Mayday Trees are in full bloom, and theirs is a penetrating scent. I'm sneezing and blowing full time this week. Hope that's over when the Maydays are finished blooming!
The heel is worked with two ends of main colour and two ends of contrasting colour, so your first step is to make a bobbin of main colour and one of contrast colour with about 6 meters yarn. I had quite a bit of the contrasting colour left on the bobbin after the heel and thought I'd use that to make the toe. Can you imagine coming out so exactly right? That little light blue end is how much of the contrasting colour was left when the toe was complete. I was sweating it!
The first sock is almost finished. There will be pictures when the pair is complete.
