To start with, some October delights...



Lovely isn't it? Zig and Zag Blanket using sock yarn scraps...ahhhhhhh....



October. Already. So much that I want to accomplish. I need to make a list...next post I'll start in on that. For now, a couple pictures to share from this week...

This weekend ventured out to a small Fiber Festival outside of Marshall, MI...and met Dani (of Pumpkinhaus) and Emily (of Bricolage Studio)...from Dani's booth I picked up one of her lovely little yellow spindles, and two delicious handspun yarns...

from Emily's booth I treated myself to a pair of fabulous little ear ornaments and also a cute little crocheted basket to hang from my spinning wheel...

I also had purchased an e-book from Lee Meredith of Leethal (on Ravelry)...here's the link to her e-book Game Knitting. And let me tell you, I'm having such fun with this! I started last night using Desperate Housewives as my gameshow of choice...and I need to start lists for others I watch...should I intermingle my shows with my projects or have a designated project for each show??? Hmmmmmmm......without further delay, here's my DH project...



In betwen knitting I've just gotten started on the Halloween 09 costume for Savvy...can you guess what she will be this year?

That is a lovely blanket for sure!

And I'm guessing that Savvy will be an Ice Princess? :)

LOL! Right you are! Savvy wants to be a Winter/Ice Princess/Fairy...you know, 3 or 4 things rolled into 1, typical of a 6 year old :-)
Thanks for stopping by! I'll post pics of the costume in the next week or two!

Thanks so much! I'm anxious to get back to it but trying to finish up the Halloween costume first!

Your yarn scrap blanket is beautiful! Do you really weave in all those ends? (if you have a trick, I'd like to know...)
