Tricks are over... bring on the Treats!

Well, these two (Jack and Jill) were waiting to greet trick-or-treaters at PC's house last night. Jill is on the right (made by moi) and Jack is on the left. PC does this thing where he does a "lecherous" smile and wiggles his eyebrows (as demonstrated by Jack) and I made my pumpkin "scream" in fear! :) It was fun and carving pumpkins was a great way to spend the Sunday before Halloween.

Now, that Halloween is over, Christmas here we come! Here is an FO that will be a Christmas present:

Chunky Ribbed Scarf (see Alison's site for more info) in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky- color: RED

This is what 30 balls of yarn look like when they arrive at your door! (thanks again Anna!)Calling all mitten-gurus (ahem... Sandy...ahem), I need a GOOD fair isle book so that I can get going on some mittens! :) These are post-holiday knitting... they are being popped into a tupperware container (with all other stash yarn) to be transported until after the holidays. Yup, people... PC and I are trying to move! (more 'bout that later!)

Mitten Update:

It looks wrong doesn't it? *sigh* I need some hands on help with this. Anyone give mitten lessons?

More tomorrow....


  1. Oooh, that Knitpicks mixture looks lovely.... Maybe that needs to be added to my Christmas Hint Hint list!! Happy knitting & moving.

  2. It doesn't look wrong. Keep going! :) Aren't they fun??
