Corrected 107 Notes


Yep. I asked for some time to can on Mothers Day. That's strawberry-kiwi freezer jam and cherum freezer jam in all the plastic containers. About as easy as a jam will ever get to make. And forget the fancy containers. I froze the cherum jam in recycled cream cheese containers.

What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:

The list:


Office throw: Doesn't it look so demure and calm, folded neatly over the arm of the loveseat in my office? An easy, satisfying afghan, if ever there was one.


Easy, easy, easy. I just LOVE this pattern. The Simple Scallops Shawl, in fingering weight, 100% merino Pele's Fire from FiberPhile yarn. Great pattern, superb yarn.


Still in Progress:

wristers: I just need to sit down in a quiet place and devote a few happy hours to these.

Dizzy Blondes:

The wheels are silent this week, as I get my sinuses back into working order.

Strategy: About Passive-Aggressive People--Work on believing that people really are not specifically trying to hurt you.

Something I Really Like: Freezer pectin. 4 cups crushed fruit of any kind + 1 cup sugar + 1 pouch freezer pectin+ 30 minutes to sit on counter and gel = freezer jam. Wonderful stuff!

Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving: 400 Delicious and Creative Recipes for Today

Okay, other podcasters are talking about knitting plus: gardening, homesteading, sewing, quilting, spinning....I guess I am that one who goes on about home preservation of foods. I'll try not to make you crazy.


We are very quiet here this week. Not yet back to running, not yet back to work, canning and freezing away. And the Amish Friendship Loaves that became a sort of curse...

Hi Dr. Gemma,
Another great podcast that I just finished. I was interested in the Amish Friendship Bread but couldn't find the link. Could you add it please. I tried googling but came up with a bazillion links.
