A different yarn!

Hello, Bonjour, Hej, Asalaama Alaikum, Namaste, Dumela! Well, will you believe it but this is a glimpse of a project in planning to be hooked in something other than my beloved Vinnis yarn.  This is a yarn made up of 32% cotton, 11% tweed, 10% wool, 44% acrylic and 3% nylon. A test run told me that it is easy to fall out of love with this yarn if one chooses a metal hook and finicky pattern. My bamboo hook is doing a great job though and because I chose the simplest of simple patterns for the project, I am doing just fine with the yarn...  
Even though the two pictures of the shed below is in black and white - the rest were shot in full colour.  The yarn is black and white with a small spot here and there in a rusty colour. 

Meanwhile I am trying my best to rid the shed my work space of odours stemming from the previous home owners storing plant fertilisers and all sort of chemicals in it for many years. It was easy to simply occupy the space - neither the husband nor the Tween or Teen took up on my offer to turn it into a craft room or artists den for any of them.  I moved my belongings in early one morning as soon as the husband left for work and the kids were still asleep without telling a soul.  It is located underneath a huge avocado tree and I can either cosy up inside or grab a chair and camp out under the tree with my supplies an arm length away.

We have a huge garden with various fruit and nut trees, a veggie patch, hordes of birds (we border a bird sanctuary) and other outbuildings. I am off plant shopping now. I am an avid collector of succulents and cacti and need to build up a collection again (as this is what one does every time one moves country). Cheers, have a great week!
