You inspired me to look at my Ravelry notebook, and among the socks, scarves and hats, and such, I knit 11 sweaters, 3 dresses, and 2 shawls! I had no idea, and agree, if I was told I would knit more than a sweater a month I'd be overwhelmed, but just doing it, felt lovely and right. Knitting is just so wonderful!

Hi Jenn! I hope the move went well. Yes, Elderberry Jam. I'm very excited and hope it comes out good. The scarf can be done in any yarn on any needles. I decided to do it with leftover sock yarn on sock needles...can't remember the size. 480 stitches will make it 60". I'll show it tonight with instructions on how I did it...it's not done, but it's done enough to show it, and give instructions!

Yes, it's the cough syrup. It's herbs steeped in water, then you drain the water off and mix it in with honey. It's a little more golden in person that the pick, but it is dark. It's yummy and amazingly effective. I've been impressed with my experience with the girls, and I gave some to a friend whose little boy was very congested and within a day or two he was breathing much easier. She and I were both amazed. I love it when a simple herbal solution works as well, if not better than the chemically ridden over the counter options.

I'm so glad you like it, and I'm impressed with how I can't tell your knitting from mine on the socks! Isn't that yarn fun to knit with.

Thank you! You bet I will. I can't wait to see them in those sweaters.

I'm not opposed to ordering, at least not philosophically, or anything , I just have a hard time ordering fabric or yarn. I so need to touch them first. I might need to resort to mail order, but it makes me a bit edgy. Thanks for the link, and I'll check it out.

She stuffs the turkey, but them makes several loafs of stuffing, in bread pans. She cut them into slices and then pan fried them with butter, to heat them up. Yum!

I really want to make a trip up there, sometime, but getting a package would be brilliant.

I wouldn't hesitate to sign up for next year. I'll have to see what is going on then, but they have done a great job and I am very pleased.

Thank you! I'm very excited. They have been very well received, and it got me back in the studio, which has been great fun!

Hi Jenn, The round buttons are 3/4" and the square and 7/8". They are a little small for coats, I think. They are priced at $6.00 each. I have larger buttons, that are 1"-1.5" and those are between $8 and $10 each. We figured they would be most likely selected for a single button on a cardigan sweater, or for a felted bag closure, or something. FB me, if you want to figure something out. I'm excited about Lemons!! Thank you.

Welcome to the East Coast! If you want to be industrious, in the area of new furniture, check out this site. I'm very inspired, and have a little list of projects I want to make: http://ana-white.com/plancatalog

It may not be October's fault. It may be that I'm far more into the homsteading that I have been before. But in the past, October did not kick my butt like it did this year. Maybe I'm to blame, and not the month, but this month has had me just out of my mind with stuff to do, so I have joined you in the realization of May and October being the busiest months.

I would love to take my girls to PORTLAND to see Elizabeth Mitchell!

Great suggestion. Thank you. I'm guessing there is Arugula in that mix, and mustard, oh, yes, I bet that is wonderful.

Will do. We might have more apples to peel and can soon. I'll let you know. I keep hearing great things about that yoga class. I'll pass on your suggestion/demand...whatever that was :)

I made the crackers, english muffins and muffins the other day. I plan to try the tortillas and the cake soon, especially after your inspiration. That class is really brilliant!

Tameson, yes I was wearing my February Lady Sweater and a long blue/gray dress. I'm sad to have missed the opportunity to meet you! I hope you say something the next time we are in the same place. Yes, she made a wand and was very excited to pound the flowers to make the print. I love the craft ideas the Tidewater School has. We went to their May Faire, and it was fabulous.

She was doing these for $5.00. Amazing. I wish I had realized what was happening, sooner, for I would have loved a trio. They are a very talented couple.
