Hmmmm not thrilled with the overall look of this one. Hitchhiker is my go to brainless knitting pattern. Used a Mini Mochi yarn so it feels great but I'm just not sure how I feel about the stripe-y look of it. It's going to be hard to top that Leftie Scarf. Working on another one now. Wish that one was faster because Christmas is coming :)
Found more than half a dozen really mature and huge black raspberry bushes on the property. Had no idea they were out there but the bear did.....So I guess I really didn't need to buy those three plants from the Tractor Supply Warehouse. I'm picking about 2 1/2 to 3 lbs. every other day :) The first thing I made was a batch of traditional jelly. That was a first....it gelled :) Yes :) Then last night I made something called "Sundae In a Jar". It's a topping for ice cream but you could add a banana and whip cream and make a banana split. Only took about an hour and a half to do it too. I have approximately 10 lbs. of berries in the freezer that I have to do something with. I'm getting requests for more of the Raspberry Chipotle Jelly I made last year. Last year's version was the freezer jelly....but I found a recipe for the traditional method on the Ball canning website. That should make it easier to mail to the "requesters" :)

Couldn't find the link on the Ball site but this is the same recipe on her blog.
