It has been a while but I have many things to report. First, I made 3 batches of strawberry freezer jam. I ended up having lots leftover from last year but I think that had to do with making 2 batches of blueberry instead of one, and then not making the strawberry ganache that I frequently make. So I made three again this year. I only have one more jam from last year to use up now, see it is easy to give away extras.

I also went on a long car trip to see my mom and brought along my rainbow socks, dyed from a sock blank that I spoke about last time. I cast on shortly after I posted that entry--a basic toe up. I struggled with--should I make them super long or should I save roughly half the yarn for something else and decided I could do a rainbow scarf too if I stopped. So I did. When we got back from our short trip (1 week!) I had this:

And a few days after we got back I had this:
rainbow socks

These have to be the fastest socks I have ever knit. EVER. And I've started a new pair. But now I'm thinking perhaps I need a second project going. Either the rainbow scarf (lacy!) or a sweater--maybe dollar and a half as I am feeling braver.
