    I'm knitting the Calais hat first, but Taxara and Cucurbita and Latuca are definitely my style. I want to bake the Holiday Chocolate Bark, Blueberry Jam Cobbler, Harvest Pesto Cornbread, and Boiled Apple Cider Dumplings! I really enjoyed the intro and the stories introducing each month - it really emphasized local and seasonal foods and knit items. I'm on the other side of the country and I'm not a farm girl, but I see a lot of things that are things I would say or do and just love the way they combined knitting and cooking. Well done!
