Gone By So Fast

We celebrated a very awesome Halloween. So many interesting visitors to our little abode.

Even Pyramid Head made an appearance.

Anyone who owns those cool boots is alright by me.

I'm not so sure how worried I should be that Napoleon befriended him so easily.

He's such a perfect little minion.

Rebel is above it all. He will be no minion to no one.

Today we just spent relaxing at the mall. A few purchases were made:
Nice little skirt for work.

A few comics to read.

Something shiny that just happened to fall into my hands.

And a warm hat for our winter walks.

I'm sure this is not a healthy behaviour.

I'm not sure how to break him of this habit.

The pattern was released a day early from the SKP group on Ravelry. There are a few unhappy souls. I can understand their frustration, but I just don't like to let little glitches like that bother me. It is only a contest afterall. It should be participated in with a sense of fun. People are taking this just way too seriously for me. I might feel different if I actually knitted to win. That is just not my style. My goal in this amusement is just to complete the socks in the alloted time. So far so good I might add.
This is the yarn I have selected for my socks. I used a varigated yarn for the Rattlesnake Creek Socks and found the cables to be lost. I have learned my lesson and will use a more solid colour choice.

I have done a bit of knitting this week end. I completed my section for one of the Travelling Scarves that I recieved in the mail the other day:

I also worked on my Sea Wool Bordello Socks.

I really like how these are going. The pattern is so simple but it doesn't appear to be as such.

I hope you are all enjoying your week end and the ghouls of Halloween did not do too much damage to your worlds.
Night all.

They're Here....

I love getting things in the mail. Especially if it does not involve payment. This delightful surprise was awaiting me upon my arrival home today:
Two scarves from my Ravelry Travelling Scarf Group.
Now then.....

What to do.....

What to do......

I am also pleased to announced.....Drum roll please.....

A pair of socks completed three days before the deadline.

I have no idea what possessed me to finish. This is very out of character. No matter. It is completed project I am pleased with.
Have a good Wednesday everyone. Just a few more days until Hallowe en. :)

Perhaps I won't be posting my finished socks seconds before the deadline. Once I managed to iron out the few troublesome details, I'm finding these troublesome Ziggy's to be moving right along!

Gosh that foot looks rather large. Well then, let's keep going and see what happens.

Napoleon is busy being guardian of the sock until it has a mate.

We had a great time at Octoberfist. It was held at the Elements club in Kitchener.

Aside from the fact that is was standing only, (I will wear more suitable footwear next time) it was awesome.

Nothing else to report for the moment I guess. I'm a bit anxious about going in to work tomorrow morning. I have no idea what my desk will look like, nor do I know what work has be set aside for me to finish. I would like to think that when I last seen my desk, it was clear and all files were taken care of. I doubt that is what I am returning to.

5 More Days Until Hallowe'en!!!

Sleep well everyone.
