Canning

 Today I canned the first batch of produce from the garden -


Stewed rhubarb. This is the first time I have canned rhubarb (I just bought a magazine all about canning, and there are lots of recipes I hope to try over the summer).


I did end up putting away the knitted vest for the week to work on the Granny Stripe blanket. I think it is almost done, so I will continue working on this project (this is the second one I have made and both have been the most enjoyable projects).


I did get some knitting done this past week too - toe-up socks. This is my take-along project, and with three appointments in the city last week, there was lots of time to knit. The yarn is a commercial sock blend (merino/nylon) that I had dyed a while ago. I like the grey for the toes (and cuffs), but the pink came out a lot different than I had hoped when I dyed it, although it is knitting up better than I expected.
