The Giving Tree

This year’s apple harvest is not impressive.

Usually we are overwhelmed with apples in early October.
I’ll maybe cook up a couple batches of applesauce, and some dried rings for snacks and that should about do it.
Just wasn’t much fruit out there.

But branches we have lots of,, and though I know it’s not the right time of year to be doing any significant pruning, I can’t deny the sheepers this special treat-

Even Griff gave an appreciative nod as he headed back out to the yard

I’m glad the apple tree is at least making the sheep happy this year!

In knitting news, the stashbuster sweater is coming along nicely. Going to have to finish with a slightly lighter shade of Border Leicester than I started with,, but I think it will work-

And I did manage to get a start on the toe-up socks-

But I kind of cheated on the cast-on. I did a long tail and then divided the stitches up between two DPNs. Since then, I think I’ve figured out Judy’s magic thingamajig,, but I’m not about to start over,,, so this will have to do for now!

      Thanks! Everyone needs a pair of red socks, right?

    Your boys are so cute….luv Frank’s adorable face.
    I think Simon (our 5 month old finn twin ram) should have been a whether. He is so affectionate and friendly…always coming to see what’s happening and wants to be in the thick of things. It’s so hard to resist his cuteness.

      Thanks Jody- Frank is pretty photogenic,, but I swear, Felix is getting more handsome all the time. He just recently developed those brownish speckles on his face. Kinda neat how their coloring changes as they mature!

    Your sheep are beautiful! And I think I’m going to steal your every other stitch idea to cover up the fact that I’m running short of my main sweater color and needing to switch to a hair lighter shade ;-).
