The first of the maple syrup is bottled and in the shop

Mike, myself, our friend Karen and our good friend Ronnie boiled sap all day on Sunday. It went from 9:00 am until 8:oo pm. We ate smoked ribs, coleslaw and homemade bread! Oh yea, and a bottle of wine!
Then the syrup came inside and was bolied for 2 more days on the stove top inside. The results are pictured here. We will boil again this weekend,for now the maple syrup stove rests. And so do we. ONE MORE WEEK OR SO FOR THE KNITTING NEEDLE DRAWING, SIGN IN AS A FOLLOWER, DETAILS BELOW

Mmm.. I bet the shop smelled delicious over the past few days! And by the way.. thank you so much for the beautiful yarn I got from you through etsy. (It was one of "the herd" skeins.) My boyfriend absolutely loves his scarf, and he gets complements on it everywhere he goes!
