Yesterday I decided to try my hand at some Rhubarb Strawberry Ja. I have a huge patch of rhubarb, and I had just bought some strawberries, so.... I made these 8 pints of jam. I have a friend that lives in ME and she inspired me.... It tastes better than it looks in the jars..

My next adventure will be Apple jelly!

Our teams have been assigned! "YEAH"... Now we have to wait until the fun begins, and see when we receive the package in the mail, and then knit like wild fire and send it off again! This should really be "FUN"!

It is a Hazy day here... We do need the rain, but geez.....I'm on vacation and I wanted to enjoy the outdoors... Temps are suppose to be 90 today w/ possible rain.

I've been knitting on a baby sweater for a x-coworker who just had a baby girl a week ago. The name they chose is Brynn Elizabeth, what a beautiful name!

Also have several pairs of socks on the needles.. One I'm focusing on are the socks for SFS....

Happy Knitting!
