6 Apple Pies!

Knittydirtygirl

Hello! It's me, Rachel-Marie, owner of http://knittydirtygirl.com

I make my fiber art items with love and an inspired, hipster heart! My hubby and I have grown a little family in the sweet small city of Lancaster, PA.

I love container gardening, vampires, knitting (of course), vintage shopping, shabby chic decorating, and audible.com. I enjoy my girl time, pampering myself or going out for a drink. Hey you only live once!

So, I’m only a click away! Msg. me, and you’re likely to get a response right away. Go ahead, I’d love to hear from you!

Hello! How are you?

I'm still doing really well. Trying to appreciate life and make the most of every new day no matter what. This morning I started off with a run through Amish country, corn + ducks + horses + Amish buggies, blues sky, and nice weather (wasn't too hot at 7:30 in the morning). Octavian has been enjoying summer too. Here he is playing out back on our patio. He had a bowl of water and some old shampoo he used to give his smurf a bath... and my door.

I made more zucchini + carrot muffins, also filled up my beloved heart baking dishes. I brought muffins into Nike, I hope everyone liked them!

I've been doing a lot of fiber work. I'm also knitting my Ishbel shawl, and looking forward to making a triloom with Jerome. Below are batts for a sock yarn that I'm currently plying.

I also have a new handspun sock yarn in my etsy shop and I dyed a new line of sock yarn sets, tea themed. I really love the new sock yarn sets I hope they take off.

Today I made 6 apple pies! I didn't expect to get so many little pies out of one bag of apples! I followed Betty Crocker for the filling, and my usual crust. The nutmeg smells BANGIN, makes me crave Autumn so badly.

Lastly, here's a photo showing off my cammo smile (my teeth are still broken) and my 1 year 5 month old dreadlocks.

Keep it Knitty!

  • You ran? I am officially impressed...that's incredible! The pies look incredibly delish. I use nutmeg too...and a dash of allspice, clove and the usual cinnamon. The batts look rad too, the colotr is totally great. Loving reading your blog, inspiring!
  • Hey Knitty!

    Octavian and your pies and your yarn and you all look beautiful!

    Glad to see that you're living your life again. Sometimes the only way to get out of a funk is to just start. Start anything and just go go go. And it looks like it's working for you :)
