We have two birthday parties for little girls tomorrow, so tonight I whipped up some headbands for last-minute (as usual🙄) gifts. The insect one is my favorite!
Hm, that title makes me think that I may have too much Dr. Seuss in my life. Nah, no such thing! 😂
Anyway, moving on…. tonight I am so pleased to announce that I have finally finished the socks requested by my husband back in….(runs off to check Ravelry) January! Maybe even earlier, because he chose the yarn from Webs, and it had to ship from Massachusetts, blah, blah.
Here they are!
The pattern is Mr. Pitt’s socks (any Seinfeld fans out there catch the reference?) and the yarn is Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light in color 4207, Salt and Pepper. As usual, I used Magic Loop, in order to have them done at the same time and be identical without having to take copious notes or think too much. 😜
With these off the needles, I’m itching to start a new pair for myself with this yarn:
This is the only yarn from Stash Exchange 2015 that I haven’t used yet, and my personal goal was to use all my stash exchange yarn (at least use some of each skein) by this year’s exchange. I’m cutting it close!
I also have the personal goal of not letting repeat offenders return to the stash exchange. So this skein really needs me to knit it up! I’m thinking toe-up to make the best use of the yardage, and simple stockinette so whatever pattern emerges (if any pattern emerges at all) will show. Wish me luck!
Last night we finally finished Halloween for the year! This last event was the culmination of all our efforts to make fantastic outfits- we had coordinated efforts with two other families to dress as characters from Dr Who! The kids and I coordinated outfits last year (Star Wars theme!), but this was my first time to have a theme with other families- it’s so fun!
Oh! I made “davros’ third eye brownies” for the party, to go with my Dalek eye stalk. The recipe is from the Doctor Who Cookbook, of course.
And… that’s a wrap! We put a lot of effort into this Halloween, but it was worth it! Let’s see what next year brings…
