I've been very busy at work these days, so I don't have much creative work to show for myself. I did, however, knit this pair of mitts in a chunky wool, an old ball of Noro Bonbori. I always love the color changes in Noro yarn. The free pattern Basic Fingerless Mitts, is knit flat and seamed, and it's a quick project to make. These went to a colleague who gave me some wool to unravel.
I have an apple tree in my backyard, and it's Apple Time, so I had to do something with this year's harvest.
I cooked up a couple of vats of applesauce...
...and got over a dozen pints.
I also made over a dozen small jars of apple chutney. We eat a lot of chutney at my house. This was a half day's work, but it was a team effort. Michael was in charge of peeling the apples, and I have one of those little hand crank peelers that's fun to use.
I still have apples, but I've done my canning for the year. With the leftovers, they'll be some apple crisps, and maybe a few baked apples.
