And in the spirit of fall, a few friends and I went apple-picking the other day. And then…we baked a pie! From scratch! I was super-proud of it, considering that an apple pie is by far the most complex thing I’ve ever attempted to cook. Luckily my friend Beth is a good baker, so with her guidance we were able to make a successful pie.
Before baking – can you see the little apple we stenciled on top?
Just out of the oven.
Ready to eat! Yummy.
While I was home for Fall Break, I dyed up the rest of my merino roving! I’m so excited to spin this stuff.
Green, pink, and purple – looks kind of like a flower garden, huh? I really love the purple dye, I need to use it more.
Shades of blue – you can’t tell, but it actually gets a lot darker than this picture shows. It has parts where it’s a really deep bluish-purple. I’m really excited to see how this spins up as a two-ply, I’d kind of like to do a series of 2-ply yarns with varying shades of one color.
I’ve been obsessed with this tutorial on making paper boxes for the past few days. It’s the coolest thing ever – it really works! Go check it out.
