Just in time for Halloween

I finished the socks!  I really concentrated on finishing my Halloween socks.  I loved the yarn and how it striped.  I used size 1 needles, String Theory Continuum sock yarn in the color way Little Ghost Nebula with a basic sock pattern.  I love my new socks and I got to wear them to knitting today.

Yes, I went to my favorite yarn shop today and was able to knit with my friends.  What a great day.  I really felt sad though.  I miss going to knitting.  I am really going to try and get there for at least an hour each Friday or most Fridays.  The good news is that in two weeks I am off again and two weeks after that is Thanksgiving and I am off again.  So, I can definitely go those weeks. Something to look forward to.

I also finished the October Mid Month KAL.  The pattern was a witch by Alli Barrett.  I used size 6 needles with Sugar and Cream yarn in orange.

Guess, you can tell it’s October and Halloween since I have been using  a lot of orange colored yarn?

I have purchased some new yarn.  I loved the String Theory Continuum yarn that I had to get Candy Corn and Electron from Simply Socks.

From the Loopy Ewe, I recently purchased Dream in Color’s Everlasting Sock yarn in Rosy and Tidewater.  It’s a nice sock yarn.  The Rosy color way is different from any other colors I have.

Now that I finished my Halloween sock, I need to get knitting on the embossed leaves sock, the prayer shawl for Christmas, and the baby hat for my niece (yikes, the baby is due soon).  I also need to start on the Great American afghan project that my friends are also knitting and need to get ready for the 2010 Kalendar scarf ( I still have to block my other scarf and take a picture of the finished project).

I can’t finish without showing a new picture of Maggie.  Doesn’t she look content and happy?

Time is flying and I’m glad.  I’m counting the days until the end of April.  Hope it goes real fast.
