The costumes are hanging up, ready to transform two small people when they return from school. The bucket of candy is by the door, and the jack-o-lanterns are all ready to be put out to greet any visitors we may have tonight.
We carved them while Marian was here, so hers are the group of three on the right. Mine is in the middle, Little Bird S did the one with the stem nose, and Little Bird J did the one on the far left, and also the one a step down with her class at school. (The two bunnies are coin banks; when I noticed them in the photo, I had to turn them so they look like innocent, though appalled, bystanders. Bwahhha-ha-ha!)
I gave myself a little treat this morning. I still have some knitting left on Tangled Yoke, but I did finish the cable pattern (it took me two nights! Longest cable ever!) so I let myself swatch.
I’m so excited about this pattern I can hardly stand it. I love everything, the colors, the stranded pattern, the shape… So nice to look forward to a project that will stretch the brain-muscle a bit – I know that when I’ve finished it, I will be a much better knitter.
