I got the bacon out of its brine and sliced for the freezer
Made tomato chutney - some for me, some for selling/barter
I got a pair of winter mitts finished at last. They're from a Finnish kit, pure wool, natural dyes. I have another two kits stashed away to tackle as well. A challenging knit, but kept up my interest. Because they're stranded knitting, they're double thickness, so will be extra warm in the winter.
The insides of the mitts
Have cast on a pair of socks and got the cuff done.
Ordered some reduced price chocolate puddings for the store room and a couple of prepping books.
I brought in some dock seeds to dry off; I'm going to dry them and grind them into a flour and experiment with it, see how it tastes and if it's worthwhile doing.
Seeds came from my American subscription - purple basil, squash, carrots and endive this time - always interesting, usually something I wouldn't think to buy myself; can't have too many seeds.
Now enjoying a large glass of gooseberry wine :)
It's dark now, at 9pm; year going quickly.
