My Violet Cap is finished and put away for the cold weather. Although this summer has been very mild, it's certainly not hat and scarf weather and since our autumn months are usually beautiful, I think it will stay tucked away for awhile now. I do love how it has come out and it was a very pleasant pattern to knit. Soon I will set aside my Starshower cowl in favor of a test knit for Lisa at Happy in Dole Valley. As soon as the yarn comes from Amanda's store I will cast on and knit like a fiend to meet the deadline.
Books still include The Chestnut King by N.D. Wilson, The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge, and Food in Jars - my favorite canning book to browse. My root cellar shelves are beginning to fill up again - Apricot halves in syrup, apricot jam, plum jam, and pickles. Dill pickles brine on the counter today and next will be bread and butter pickle slices from my mass-producing vines.
