Happy Halloween, everybody! 18 years ago today, I was in labor with my first baby. My friend Cathy ran over to the hospital to see me, and when she popped into my room in a Minnie Mouse costume, I started wondering what the heck they were putting in my IV.
Between Halloween and the big birthday tomorrow, I have got quite a to-do list this morning. This post will be short and sweet.
Who wants to guess how long it took to weave in the ends on the hat from hell?
Keep in mind that this photo only shows one side of the hat before I knit on the earflap! It was quite the party, as you can imagine.
damn challenging hat is finally done and wrapped. I will get a finished picture on the birthday girl - it was absolutely impossible to get a picture of myself wearing it. Not to mention, I really wouldn't be caught dead in the thing. I still have no idea what my daughter sees in this hat, but mine is not to wonder why, mine is to intarsia or die.
Wanna see another FO?
Yep, the cinnamon Monkeys are done! I finished them at the football game on Friday night. Once again, it is almost impossible to take photos of knitted items while you are wearing said items, but I think you get the gist.
I love, love, LOVE these socks and I never wish to be parted from them. Unfortunately, I think they are destined for the Christmas present pile. December 25th is bearing down on me like a freight train and I've got to get it in gear. So, present #1 - done.
One more (almost) finished item:
The multi-directional diagonal scarf for my International Scarf Exchange 5 pal. I still need to block it and fringe it. I also have not put any thought into what else I'll be putting in her package. Guess my to-do list just got one line longer.
I'm off to shop, wrap, bake and, oh yeah, go to work. Apple cider wishes and candy corn dreams to you all!
