Happy Halloween!!

This post has nothing to do with Halloween, except that I am sitting here waiting for the trick or treaters.  I've only had 16 so far.  It is miserable out with blowing snow and yuck.

I finished the BFF socks!!!!!  I was getting so sleepy last night but I only had a few more rows to go on the toe so I made myself stay awake and finish.  Whew.  Glad to get a project done.

Yesterday was a good mail day!  I had won a giveaway from A Quilting Life and it was in my mailbox!!!
It is Veranda.  Pretty!!!!
eek!  My hands look scraggly!  I need to start wearing gloves outside!!

I may have already cut into this pack of pretty and started sewing something!  Now I just need to finish it.  I am going out of town for a while.  Think the hubby would mind if I brought my sewing machine? hmmmm... I think I will just have to stick to knitting.  I have no idea yet what project to bring.  I may cast on a very plain sock to work on. And bring the hexipuffs, of course!!  I need to make another pair of the BFF socks but I don't want to have to carry the book around.
I also got a quilt back from the quilter and it just needs binding but I really don't want to carry that around either!!  We will be in a gym most of the time and I need something small.  I can always use another pair of socks or they can be a gift.
Now I am up to 22 trick or treaters.  Just had the cutest little guy with the sweetest grin!!!
Happy Crafting!!!


  1. Love the socks!! Perfect time to have those! I really need to learn to knit!! Congratulations on your winnings. pretty!

  2. I love your socks and your new fabric!!!!! I can't wait to see what you make!
    You could bring fingerless mitts with you on the trip!! I'm working on a pair right now and they would be perfect for days when it's chilly in the house or outside :)

  3. whenever I don't have a hand quilting project and have to travel I think knitting too. Love to make moebius scarves. cat bhordi has great videos.
