Magic time (mostly pics)

Cinderella's coach didn't turn into a pumpkin...

...a good time was had by all.

For me, October is always the busiest, craziest, and most fun month of the year. I love the colors, the birthdays (Michelle's and mine are 6 days apart, which is why I got a mention on the cake from my family,) and I've always thought that Halloween is a great way to end the month!

My sweet, 75-year old father brought that gorgeous cake (the one with the number candles). He also insisted on paying for the entire dinner. I could say I wish some of that level of class had rubbed off on someone else in the family...but I promised myself I wasn't going to go there today.

For his entire life, Dad has been a Boston Red Sox fan. The seventh game of the American League Championship series is about to begin, and I am praying that the Sox kick Cleveland's butts and make it to the World Series. Not just for Dad, but I've also got Sox fever!


There has also been knitting

Letting WIP's languish, but I did find a way to use up a good portion of 6 skeins of Lamb's Pride. Yep, a felting project. I finished the fulled kitty basket for Hannibal, and it's now drying.

Looks like a big blob o'wool mohair...

...much prettier when turned over.

Once it's dry, I'll give it a sprinkle of catnip to entice kitteh...then we shall see!

Last but not least, I downloaded the pattern for the Forest Canopy Shawl and began it this afternoon in Silky Wool, which I received a lot of in the summer yarn swap.

Definitely my kind of lace pattern--knits up quick, and so easy that even I can't screw it up.

I'm trying to stay away from swaps on Ravelry, as we are hip-deep in yarn. Now that's not necessarily a bad thing, but with the holidays coming I'd kind of like to have my dining room table back.

It looks like a great birthday! Swaps on Ravelry? How have I missed that?
fabulous birthday! I need to get my shit together on ravelry...
