Fixing and Finishing
A short post today since I’m short on time to get ready for another “2-socks-in-1 With Lunch” class tomorrow. But first, thank you all so much for your congratulations about my fair ribbons. It really was a great accomplishment for me and so heartwarming to read all the kind comments.

And this weekend I’ll be working on sewing buttons onto this sweater:
And knitting a collar onto this sweater:
And then blocking both of them.
In homesteading news, I canned some applesauce and salsa, and froze more beans and a few peas:
Then, we started this:
…which is seriously going to cut into my knitting time. It’s addicting. But quality quiet time with my sweetie pie makes up for it!
