Did everyone have a good Halloween? It was very quite in my neighborhood. My bell hardly rang at all. The boys are back with their mother on Sunday, so I didn't have to take them Trick or Treating. Good thing I didn't buy much candy or I'd have it in the house all week.
Took the new car out for a short road trip on Saturday - David originally wanted to go to PA, but the weather was so lousy, we just drove out to the Island, got as far as Port Jefferson then headed back so we could get the kids home on time. Stopped at Target and p/u a few more bins for stash storage. I am happy to report that knitting is very comfortable in the Aztek. I still think it is butt ugly, but David is happy and that is all that matters.
Just about finished the 3rd skein of Misty for Marilyn's poncho - I have one more left, but I am thinking that I might need 5 - well see how long it is after I finish this one.
Picked up 200 crochet blocks - cool book - I made a few to add to Robert's blanket - I had knit 9 squares up in his colors and now I want to do 9 in crochet and sew them all together. Then I can do the same for Jeff's.
I also received the new Interweave knits - some really nice stuff in there, but my favorite is the web pattern here. It is done in Filatura Di Crosa Zara but I was thinking Elann has some beautiful Peruvian wool at a very reasonable price - would have to see if that could work.
Remember - VOTE tomorrow!
2nd Post: I found it - I mentioned that I had seen some really beautiful handpainted silk/wool blend yarn and couldn't find the link - well I found it!! Here - isn't this gorgeous!!??!! I want every color!
Did anyone catch Desperate Housewives last night? (I know, but I can't help it - it is a bad habit) I was hysterical - I never realized how threatening knitting could be! No wonder David and the boys don't bother me when I am knitting.
