I still have pumpkins to use, too. Since I haven't resolved my storage problem (no room in the freezer; smooth-top range unsuitable for pressure canning), the best I can do right now is cook and puree my big kettle's worth for another pumpkin recipe binge. For potluck last week, someone brought pumpkin pie filling baked in a 9x13 casserole; I liked it even better than pumpkin pie! That will definitely go on the binge list. (All you pie crust lovers can just shoot me.)
The socks are growing . . . ever so slowly. I could say that's because I haven't had much time to knit and that would be true, but I also know I make time to knit when the project is compelling (read NOT on size 0 needles!). There is a certain pattern that is calling to me like a siren – the next pattern in Romi Hill's newest ebook, 7 Small Shawls; Year 3: Home is Where the Heart Is.

Knitting and canning; good indoor activities for rainy weather.
That's it for today from . . .
