I believe I promised more pictures of the completed Cinxia sweater. We seem to have been blessed with an Indian Summer this year, so we went out into the backyard to take some pictures. I’m really not sure that we can call it an Indian Summer since we really didn’t have much of a summer to start with. But despite the cool temperatures, my garden seems to have turned into a jungle. It survives very nicely by benign neglect. You can see the pumpkins and corn in the background. What you can’t see is the world’s largest cherry tomato plant. Honestly, this tomato plant is larger than the zucchini plant! The tomato escaped it’s cage and is currently sprawled all over the garden. The cherry tomatoes are coming fast and furious; the girls have really enjoyed eating tomatoes every night after we get home.
I’m spending lots of time trying to figure out what to do with the plethora of produce the garden is producing. Between the garden and my CSA box, I’ve got lots and lots of fresh veggies this summer. I’ve been freezing most of it. I’m not much of a canner, but I do enjoy cooking. I’ve put stuffed peppers and stuffed zucchini in the freezer and have made a couple of batches of spaghetti sauce. I’m thinking about making some enchilada sauce as well to freeze. If anyone has recipes they would like to share, I’d love to see them. Mostly I have tomatoes to use up at this point. Although I have a little cabbage, some cauliflower and summer squash.
Back to the sweater, I haven’t found a clasp I really like yet, so I’m using an old pin. I think I like the way it looks. The photos were taken before blocking, so the edges are now crisper and the sweater has stretched a bit lengthwise.
Edited to try to fix the Title link.
