Yesterday while ladling my sauce into a jar, I heard a cracking sound. I looked at the jar and saw no visible sign of stress, so I went on my merry way. As I finished the jar and lifted it to put in the canner rack, the bottom literally fell out. I lifted the jar and the bottom as well as a quart of sauce was all over the counter, the cabinet, and the floor. A near perfect circle of a crack on the jar bottom. WOW. After a quick clean up, we inspected the jar and were amazed at how clean the break was (sorry no picture…there was still a shock factor since I’d never had that happen before). So, all in all, I ended up with just 10 quarts of sauce to show off today. One went straight into the frig for dinner this week.
I did get a chance to sit at my knitting machine yesterday as well. I was able to knit up this hat using some handspun yarn I had in my stash.
I love the little flower that hangs down the back.
