New Knitted Afghan, a Turkey Made of Fruit?

Earthy Afghan
Earthy?  Land and Sea?  Earth and Sky?  These are the names popping into my head for this in the works afghan.  This was started just last week while traveling in the car with 2 girl friends to Hilton Head.  We have girls week twice a year, once in the Spring and again in the Fall.  Though Cardiac Collage isn't yet finished, I needed to take something that wasn't so big to work on in the car.  Cardiac Collage needs to be edged and joined...stay tuned on that score.

But what of this latest one?  What shall I call it.  Currently it has 2 shades of green, a tan, and a variegated tan, blue, green.  It measures 60 inches wide (cast on 200 stitches)  and since photographing here measures 14 inches deep.  The green you see next to the tan is completed and I've got about an inch of blue which picks up a bit on the blue in the variegated.  No fancy stitches...just stripes/sections of good old garter stitch.  Love to hear you thoughts on the possible name.

Trip was fun, but I came back with a cold.  Dang it.


Turkey made of fruit
Last year I shared a photo of a turkey made from veggies for a beautiful center piece.  Several people I know made it, thought it looked great, but was lots of work and people were afraid to eat it, didn't want to ruin the look, lol.  This is a fruit turkey you might want to try for the up coming Thanksgiving Day Holiday.  However........my question is how does one keep the banana's from getting dark?  If you make this, please let me know how it went.


I don't post about politics as often as I used to, and certainly not as often as it's on my mind.  But, when I saw this on Facebook...I couldn't help but think how sadly accurate it is with depicting "don the con".

Need to catch up with stuff around the house, and blogging since I've been away.  Looking forward to visiting everyone on my blog log and catching up with your activities.

  2. Earth and sky sounds like a wonderful name.
    Love that turkey. Would soaking the banana slices in lemon juice prevent them from oxidising?
    That ditty certainly portrays what we see of the man on this side of the world.

    1. Thanks for the visits, and thoughts on the name of the ghan. Lemon juice...thanks for the tip. I know when we traveled to Ireland and Scotland last year and more recently this year to Italy; it seems they don't think much of him either.

  7. Love that beautifully nutritious turkey. I don't know how to keep them from browning, but I believe that if it's chilled (vs left out), that would slow the process.
    Take care, Sandy.

    1. I'm hoping someone tries it so we'll know the outcome. It wouldn't probably go over well in my family, so I won't...but do think it's cute.
