Lots of knitting.....and canning Bread & Butter pickles....

 Hemingway Boyfriend Cardigan with my version knit in Andean Silk in the Barn Red color.  Took about 13 skeins.  Elizabeth Zimmermann would have you notice the "dreaded frontal droop".
 This is called Caireen and is a beautiful Celtic wrap I knit with 3 skeins of Briggs & Little Regal in Forest Brown.  It took me 10 days.  Should be dry tomorrow.
Sometimes I want something sweet in a pickle and these hit the spot.  These Bread & Butter pickles couldn't have been easier to prepare and can.  I was able to get into them the next day.  Yum!


  1. You are amazing! I can't even imagine making an actual sweater!!! What a stunning color! However, the Celtic shawl is IT. You may as well stop knitting right now as THIS is your finest piece!!! What a fabulous design! I can see you now, shawl around your shoulders nipping out to gather the eggs, slipping into the house to nibble on pickles.....

  2. Just about nothing better than homemade pickles; yours are as lovely as your knitting! That cardigan is just beautiful.

  3. I have a similar style jacket in black that I bought, but I bet not half as warm as yours.
    Those pickles sound delicious i think I will have to try some of them.


I am SO looking forward to reading your comment!!! Thank you for leaving one!
