I thought I had this post all set to go yesterday . . . and…
Last week, Margene brought us all to the Land of Green Witches. This week, in keeping with the Halloween theme, I present, The Land of Tricks and Treats.
Snow in Southeastern Massachusetts on October 29. And not just spitting snow but actual stick-to-the-ground snow. Is this what the coming winter is going to be like? Sigh.
Finished Socktoberfest socks! I know it wasn’t a rule that the socks had to be finished in October but I really wanted to be done with them by the end of the month. And I am. That’s Trekking Autumn and the pattern is feather and fan from the book Socks Socks Socks. And they are warm and for me and I really love ’em!
Finished Kiri Shawl! The pattern was easy to follow and it was my first time using charts. Never mind the little argument I had with chart 3, it was all my problem, and once I got over it, I breezed through and finished the shawl on Friday night. The bind-off (because some people think we should be timing bind-offs on shawls) only took 1.5 hours. But the shawl is beautiful and it only took ONE ball of Karabella Lace Mohair and I love it! And it’s oh-so-perfect for Halloween because it does sort of look like a spider web. Which is better than looking like a lunch-lady hairnet, right?
Tune in tomorrow for more treats, including the haul from the Franklin Fiber Twist!
