I love growing stuff. When I was a kid, growing up in a small town, my mom had a vegetable garden behind our house. When I moved away, and as I've moved to bigger and bigger cities, my need to cultivate greenery and produce has gotten stronger and stronger.
Last summer I had a fire escape garden. But I got busted by the fire marshall, so it looks like my dream of being an urban farmer has stalled for a while. So, I've been compensating by growing all kinds of plants indoors.
In fact, they were beginning to cover all the (very limited amount of) free space in my apartment. So, I began thinking like a real New Yorker when it comes to organizing my space: UP.
Enter hanging plant holders.
But I'm a knitter, so you know I'm not gonna just go buy one. What's the fun in that? Behold, my beautiful new felted plant holder.
I based it off of this one, but I made some modifications in the size of the various holders, and I did knitted I-cords instead of crocheted cords.
It's rare that I knit things for my own use, but I'm so glad I did this. I'm in love with it. I imagine in a few weeks, I might be living in a jungle if I don't find another project to occupy me.
