Delicious Yellow

Yellow Delicious

Dear Mom,

The cardigan is coming along, although I slowed down significantly after finishing the body up to the point where the sleeves will be attached. Because I'm tinkering with gauge a little bit, some experimenting has been necessary to ensure that the sleeve is a wearable circumference.

Fall continues in full swing here, deliciously. We are making weekly trips to the orchard to pick bags of apples, and the produce at the farmers' market is wonderful. Our garden fall crops have also been producing really well - we're eating arugula, cress, lettuce, mustard greens and radishes from the garden right now.

Apple Pie

I made a pie on Saturday with some of the apples I picked the day before. The yellow delicious apples turned almost saffron-colored inside the pie. I took it to an impromptu gathering where it disappeared very quickly, so I think I need to make at least one more this fall.




Dear Mom,

The weather has turned here at last, catching up to the calendar.

Tangled Yoke Cardigan

I'd like to have this finished by Election Day. Do you think I can do it? I started it last Friday.
