This week's Follow Your Arrow clue was a short one. I finished in 70 minutes. Well, I finished about five hours after I started knitting, because I knit for ten minutes and then fell asleep. Yesterday was a weird day for me, sleep-wise.
Sorry for the awful nighttime photos, but I also made spiced apple granita! It was delicious and easy. Just melt half of a cup of sugar in 1.5 cups of boiling water, add some clove powder, take it off the heat and add apple cider, pour in a flattish baking pan and freeze. Then after an hour or so, you can start scraping the surface of the thing lightly with a spoon. Repeat every thirty minutes until the whole thing is flaky and loose and wonderful.

And that is the whole and entire reason.
