It is Sunday, and I hope this day finds all of you lovelies resting up from the past week as well as resting up for the week to come. I am not going to start off right away posting about the dull, mundane, chores and tasks I've been doing (that can come later in this post), but I'm gonna go straight to the heart of the fun stuff, "the dessert" so to speak. Here is a glimpse of my 2nd Elise Shawl. I just love the colors, don't you? The first one is still not blocked. I have the 3rd one to make yet and hoping to have that one started by this evening. When I get all 3 completed I will give you the low-down on what I did and the details of where you can find the pattern. In the meantime, if you can't wait, go to my sidebar and click on Mereknits. She has all kinds of info related to this shawl. She also has beautiful photos of the ones she has made from this pattern and the blocked results. You can also find the link to the pattern. I know she'd love it if you stopped by to visit with her.
Sundays don't usually find me doing much of anything. It has become my day of rest, but I stretched it a bit and threw together an apple pie. Look at it, is it not the silliest looking pie crust you have ever seen, for me too. I had about a dozen apples picked from my trees the other day, sitting on the kitchen counter for a good 5 days....gnats! Yep, gnats, this time of year brings them inside and I needed to do something with those apples. I whipped up some apple pie filling yesterday morning and put it in the fridge. Then this morning I got my old stand by deep dish frozen crusts out of the deep freezer and you see it, my masterpiece. It just so happened that I didn't have enough apples to mound them up so that the top crust would stay up. So, I smashed it down and looks like a beret of sorts, lol. I had already crimped the 2 shells together around the edge.
