Blue Shackamaxon and more

harvest this morning

Blue or Black Shackamaxon beans

I see now why there is a disparity between those calling them 'blue' and 'black'. I had room-dried a few of the beans last week and the seeds inside those are black. I found one that had dried naturally outside - completely in the hull, and those two seeds have a definite blue cast to them.

Zig zag pattern in knitting
This is the (yo,k1)*6, (k2tog)*6 version

Did the math and at 14 inches of width, I would need 6 strips as close to 86/90 inches wide as possible. Sew the strips reversed to each other and make a 'sine wave' afghan large enough for the bed. Considering I am at seven inches of length on this test script... that would take a long time. Hmm. But I could finish the strips in white, orange, yellow, light grey, dark grey and black. That would cover all the colors I have been thinking of. Hmm...
