Cool weather with thunderstorms arrived this week and I headed out to the back yard to finish up the garden swing. I had crocheted the largest part of the seat a couple of weeks ago and gotten it sewn onto the frame of the swing; a good start but still not usable. What I needed to do now was to remove the seat from the rest of the chair so that I could crochet side panels to attach the seat onto the sides of the frame. I attacked the bolts with my handy little tool kit and got the part holding the seat off and onto the lawn where I could work on it in the shade.
Even with all the help and a break for a thunderstorm I got the side panels crocheted and sewn onto the frame after a couple of mornings. Today after lunch I reattached the seat to the swinging frame and then I was back in lawn chair business.
I’m still not completely happy with the tension on the seat of the swing so I’m going to use it for a couple of days and then will take in a tuck or two on the seat fabric to make it more taunt. Still, things are looking up; I am back outside for my morning latte. Happy, happy day!
Outdoor knitting, here I come!

That is a great project. Its useful, economical, and provided lots of kitty entertainment. I’d say that was a home run. 🙂
and now I can’t get the cats to come in from the yard. They have been sleeping in it all afternoon. 🙂
Wow!!! You did a great job 🙂
The cats certainly are happy with it!
I love all the’helpful’ cats out there! It’s looking great, so nice you were able to get it done in time to enjoy some summer outdoor knitting 🙂 x
Would you believe it rained overnight? It’s too cold and wet to go out this morning for knitting. It looks really cute out there waiting for me…
Oh no!! At least you can admire it! x
Congratulations. Well done.
Awwww! I love your cats! I’m glad they approved of your project. 🙂
Oh, they supervise all my projects!
How exciting! I’m glad you got it done. Better make extra lattes for the kitty company. 😉
