A is for.......

APPLES


Our family eats ALOT of APPLES. ALL three of my children love them. The color ALSO makes me happy. I will ADMIT that living in Minnesota gets you some great APPLES. Can you say Honeycrisp???? Those ARE so AWESOME. I decided to do the ABC ALONG this year. I have decided that I will use it to let people learn more ABOUT me, my family AND my knitting.




A is ALSO for what these socks are being A pain in, but I won't go there. I AM having A little trouble with getting the heel flap just right. Now I know why I don't usually tweak the pattern. I had to mess with it for this yarn AND for the fact that I don't have little narrow feet. I do like the pattern but if they continue to cause me too many more problems they will be swimming the Frog Lake I think.

Honey Crisp don't think they have those in Massachusetts that I know of. Will have to look for them.

Good luck with your socks. Some times the fiddling is worth it, but if there's too much grief and it's not enjoyable anymore then off to the frog pond! Sure hope you get it worked out before that...what I see so far is beautiful :)

I can not wait for summer, for the farmers market so I can get yummy apples!
Your socks look lovely, I love that colorway! I hope the heel gusset works out for you.

Honey crisp.... Yum! They are also my favorite apple. It use to be Harrelson apples.. they are pretty good too! Minnesota does have some great apple orchards.
