a quiet Saturday afternoon

After taking the boy to driver training, grocery shopping, and a little mall shopping the afternoon was spent by making jelly. Yum jelly. I love apple jelly and it is very hard to find in the stores. So mom and I mixed up some juices and jelly making stuff and made some jelly. Apple, mixed fruit, and double mixed fruit. The double mixed fruit is when you mix the dredges of Apple with the dredges of mixed fruit.....it is the pretty pink one on top.

This past week I have been working on a pair of scrap socks. Using up all my scrap sock yarns in the stash. Mine are on the bottom using a pattern from the More Sensational Socks book.

The ones on top are mom's using a pattern from the same book. A word to the wise, when making stranded socks you need to either add stitches or go up a size needle from your usual. We didn't......so now the green/beige ones are going to our Jakers (4 years old) and mine will fit mom's size 5 feet. But they a FUN to make!


  • The socks look really nice!

    I haven't made jelly before...lots of jam but no jelly. It looks yummy!!!
