Autumn crafts

blog-photos-002This time of year always makes me think of baking apple something! Over the weekend I made cranberry apple butter in the crockpot and I made Apple Brown Betty for dessert Saturday night to go with the beef stew I had simmering for dinner. It was a perfect meal for a rainy, raw autumn day.


On the fiber front, I managed on Saturday to finish both heels on the socks I started in June, I think that it was June, and began knitting the cuffs. These socks will be so warm and comfy that I just can’t seem to get the cuffs knitted quickly enough. Sunday I started another pair of toe-up socks so that I can try the after-thought heel which will allow me to bring my socks with me to work on as I will be working only in inches for distraction…not the actual heel until I’m done. Sounds good, let’s see how it works out.


So, what do you do when autumn rolls into your neighborhood?





  1. Fall generally gets me attempting to get organized. I pull together the patterns, ideas, projects underway for Christmas and get them organized in project bags and then figure out what I will need to shop for to complete everything. Then I pull out previous years Christmas projects that didn’t get done and I am sure I will get to them this year. And while I’m at it, I attempt to organize things I have started for myself that I am SURE I will get to this winter! And then I do what I can!!

    • LOL. You are a woman after my own heart. Yes, I do much of the same with much the same results.
