Happy Fall!

It's officially Fall!  I'm hoping to make one or two more cowls before the snow flies.  I have quite a few on my list.....waiting for me to knit.....

Here are just a few:

Which one do you like the best?  If you click on the link below the picture, it will take you to my Pinterest post which then will take you to the pattern and original designer.  I have gobs of knitting projects on my Pinterest knitting board.  There just isn't enough time in a day....

Harvest Time!

Do you go to an orchard in the fall?  We have a few apples trees and a pear tree and every year we pick them and 'put them up' (meaning freeze/can/store).  This year the trees were exceptionally bountiful.  I don't know what kind of weather conditions make for a perfect apple year.....but this year was great.  After several days of picking and processing, I now have 25 gallons of apples and 6 gallons of pears in my freezer.  I also have several quarts of pears sitting in my cupboard.  What a good feeling!
