Indian Summer

We had a long weekend with Teacher In-service Day on Friday and Columbus Day on Monday  The weather all four days was BEAUTIFUL! 

We went apple picking yesterday at a lovely orchard just over the state line in PA.

We picked mostly Stayman with a few Fuji and MacIntosh thrown in for kicks!

I have one of these jobbies that makes quick work of making applesauce.  Found it on Craigslist for $20 ... what a deal!

Progress is continuing on the Rainbow Granny Blanket.  
I am crazy-in-love with it and must stop myself from working on it every waking hour of the day!!!!  

Over half of the blocks are joined together and I plan on many late nights to get it done.  So ... Check back later this week for the Big TaDah!

Enjoy your week and keep the comments coming.  They absolutely tickle me pink and make my day!

wow you're fast.
hey how many hours are you from pittsburgh?

Hazel said...

Your blanket is looking lovely. Can I ask - did you block the squares before joining them together? x

Erin said...

Sarah, I'm about 4-5 hours away from Pittsburgh. Why do you ask? =)

Erin said...


I did not block my squares. I found that if I keep them under 5 rounds they don't skew much at all.

No blocking = more crochet time. =)
