Strawberry Jam and a Messy Knitting Basket

Well, I tried my hand at water bath canning and made some strawberry jam. I used this book,
Canning & Preserving with Ashley English as my guide. What a fantastic book! Very picture heavy, which is exactly what I needed. I have always been afraid to try canning, partly because I wouldn't do it right and make a bunch of people sick. Well, my fears have been alleviated, I feel like I can "can" anything now! Ok, maybe not anything but I feel a lot more comfortable with the process. Truth be told, I haven't actually eaten any of my jam because I just made it today and it has to sit for 24 hours, but it looks good and I heard pinging sounds when it was cooling so I think it sealed well. Official taste testing begins 7 am tomorrow with a toasted English muffin.

And just for good measure and keeping things knitting related around here, I took a photo of my messy neglected knitting basket. :D

Crazy Week and A New Hat!

I had such a crazy week last week, working until the wee hours of the morning a couple of days messed up my sleep and when that is messed up I am just no good. I did manage to finish a new hat design and knitted it in 3 color choices. I have also started making stitch markers that I will be adding to my shop soon along with some of my original designs for pdf downloads. I was so busy I even missed my Wordless Wednesday post so here are some pics for your viewing pleasure.

Kitchen linens and new pics.

I have been busy working on some new fall/winter hat and glove designs. But in the meantime, I've designed this Retro-style kitchen towel set from some amazing cotton yarn I've found. I will be making these in dark blue, butter yellow, and light blue also. I will be taking custom color orders for these as well. Message me at my ETSY shop for a custom order.
I've also taken new shots of some of my shop listings with my new mannequin.
