finished things!!

I know its amazing, but I have actually managed to complete a few projects.

A trio of knitted toys for my cousins. They are, from left to right, a kitty made as a modified Bubby from Knitty made from Cascade 220, an elephant from the pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts from Blue Sky Aplaca Sport Weight and Pasha the penguin from Knitty made from Blue Sky Alpaca and Cascade 220.

and i made cherry jam on what was probably the hottest day of the year

at long last the socks are finished! They are made from Socks That Rock in a color called moss agate. The pattern was invented (and re-invented) on the fly as a toe-up sock with an afterthought heel and 2×2 ribbing on the top and ankle. Forgive the strange angle of my legs, photographing socks is sure hard to do….

    kitty needs a hat :) Or a suitcase.

    I am impress with the jam though. I haven’t canned anything in ages. Probably can’t remember how.

    It was my first canning experience… the canning part was ok but im still unsure about how to evaluate jam recipies. I really want to make it with less sugar but Ive heard that messes up the jelling chemistry.
