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-
Edgar says “thanks Mom!”
Even Griff gave an appreciative nod as he headed back out to the yard
Bunch of satisfied Shetland boys hanging out and digesting-
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!
