Joining Ginny for Yarn Along again this week. I'm working on a few easy mindless things since completing the scarf I was working on. I whipped out a few dishcloths in a sunny yellow and orange since our old ones are getting pretty dingy. Now I'm making a few to give away.
On the reading list lately is the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. It may not seem very exciting, but I can't stop scheming and planning all of the foods I want to preserve this year. From the ordinary strawberry jam to the unusual blood orange marmalade (yum!) I see a shelf full of yumminess by the end of this summer! (And don't my new dishcloths match my book wonderfully!)
Ahhh Home preserving... I am happy to be just finished with the bottling season, gosh it had me running about, Go well with it and nice colours on the dishies.ReplyDelete
I love those colors--what a great spring project-so cheerful. AHH home preserving--I would love to try that! I can not wait to hear your results!ReplyDelete
Cute clothes. I also love the last food post. I want to make sourdough bread! Looks so good.ReplyDelete
I love dishcloths. I also use mine as hot mats. They work great either way. My goal this year is to make strawberry jam. I've never done it but have a few great resources that make it seem so easy!ReplyDelete
I have been canning for many years and each year I try to preserve something new and different so your book just went on my list! Blood orange marmalade? Oh yes! :)ReplyDelete
Scheming - now that is a fun word for canning ideas! The blood orange sounds good. We've just made the basic strawberry jam and last year made a cherry jam. That was good. I still need to conquer my 'fear' of home canning.ReplyDelete
Dishcloths look good - must really try making some of these again.
Bright dish cloths are so cheerful! I am going to try and preserve some food this year too. I am waiting patiently for strawberry season to arrive....ReplyDelete
Fun! Dishcloths are great and so fast. I made a few that are sitting around not being used because I still need to weave in the ends( silly huh?). They are fantastic gifts too :)ReplyDelete
You can never have too many dishcothes, I tell ya!ReplyDelete
Your're the second person I've clicked on today making dishcloths, which is what I am making now, having finished one sweater and waiting for yarn to arrive for another. Great mindless knitting for the van...ReplyDelete
Those dishcloths are really pretty!ReplyDelete
My hubby wants to get started in canning this year so I may have to look into that book for myself!
I need to make a few dishcloths around here.....Love the bright colors. But then I always like your yarn color choices :)ReplyDelete
I love that you coordinate your knitting with your books. Which came first? Looks like a good book. I make loads of home preserves, but each year I like to try something new. Some past experiments are still skulking in the back of the cupboard, but most work. That's what keeps me trying!ReplyDelete
