The slacker that is me...or not?

I know...I haven't posted in a while, but the slacking in writing has been thoroughly made up for in other crafty endeavors.  Moose's sweater? Done.  (And he looks mighty fabulous if I do say so myself...even without the sweater.)

Snuggle Blankets? 1 finished, a second 25% done.

I've also been baking and canning.  I made a pumpkin pie from a real pumpkin (not from a can), produced 2 and a half pints of apple butter which I had never made before, and with some assistance from my youngest sister, sliced, simmered, and ground enough apples to create 30 quarts of home made applesauce.  Tomorrow will also bring more apple-goodness in the form of tasty pies to share with coworkers and friends.

Also in the works: a new set of slippers which I will be felting (This is my first felting project.) and *finger's crossed* a hooded, long-sleeved tunic.  I have the yarn purchased for the tunic, but nothing is cast on yet.  I'm a little nervous about it, since I'm still not so great with knitting that has to match a gauge, but I know I can do it.
