I'm knitting this hat.

I'm knitting this hat with White Buffalo wool that was given to me by my son in law's grandmother. I use to knit with this yarn years ago but it's hard to find! White Buffalo Yarn has been discontinued which probably means nothing to you unless you live in Canada. According to the yarnharlot's blog It's unspun and drawn out for knitting, several strands come off the puck at once. It has some oils it in, and it is absolutely water resistant. Historically, it's been used in here in Canada for sweaters that are a knock off of the Cowichan sweaters. Wearing a sweater made of of white buffalo wool is like wearing a furnace! I'll post a pick of my hat when I'm done!

An Apple A Day?!!

I've heard apples are good for you but this getting ridiculous! I am up to my ying yang in apples. Today I made homemade applesauce and some delicious applesauce cake which was very yummo but it seems like I haven't begun to put a dent in our apple harvest!!!

Thanksgiving Canadian Style!

This year we kind of celebrated Thanksgiving twice! First was a couple of weekends ago at my sister's place. Her daughter was here visiting from Jersey so we all got together and it as extra meaningful because my brother, who last year at this time was in a coma, was there bearing gifts and thanks for all of us who helped him through his ordeal. It was potluck and my grandson made a 'casserole' for the birds on my deck. So Sweet!
We also celebrated this past Monday and my mom stayed over and we cooked together.
