So, I'm not American, but I do live in the States and so today, if nothing else for me, means a day off! And actually, I am going to have Thanksgiving dinner with a couple of friends and one of the friends' family, so yay turkey!
So on my day off I have done this:
On the left is my mom's famous apple cake and on the right is a blueberry pie. The apple cake is always a hit, the blueberry pie I'm a little less confident about. It's my first "on my own" pie crust (that's right, no frozen pie crust for this gal!) and it's my first blueberry pie. The last pie I made (which was about a year ago) was peach, also a first time, and a hit. I didn't make the pie crust that time though, my friend Andrew did...
And a little of the Christmas Knitting:
A giagantor cabled scarf (on size 19, not 35 as directed). Pattern is Big Fat Cable Scarf by a friend of mine. If you are going to try out this pattern, make sure you add an 8th row to purl across the cable... you'll see what I mean. Oh, and I also added an extra stitch on either side of the cable.
OK, back to the baking... time to whip some cream!
