Happy Halloween

As a kid, I was the one who dumped out her trick-or-treat sack on the living room floor, sorted through her candy, and admired her loot as she enjoyed a chocolate or two before bed. Now, as a grown-up, I find myself doing the same thing on this Halloween afternoon, but this time with lots of yarny-loot:

The Loot

The husband and I ventured up to Hartford for Stitches East 2010 this morning -- talk about a kid in a candy store (I am talking about myself, of course, not my husband). This was my first time at Stitches and I had a blast browsing through all the booths. Next year I definitely want to spend more time there and even take a class or two.

Pictured above: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock in the Briar Rose colorway from Webs; Lisa Souza sock yarn in Squash Blossom, 4 pins from Leilani Arts, 3 pins and a Norwegian thimble from The Mannings, and a small bear from Mother Bear Project.

Hope everyone has a safe & Happy Halloween!

FO Friday

I finished this a couple nights ago. Tomorrow it will have a real photo shoot, but I couldn't wait to share, so please don't mind the camera phone photo.

October already?!

It has been another busy year around here and the blog has once again taken the backseat. Do I sound like a broken record??

I have been doing quite a bit of knitting in the midst of other things going on -- and even started my own Etsy shop. My aunt was going to host a craft fair this coming weekend, so I have been knitting away on mini ornaments to sell. Unfortunately the fair has been postponed, but I have started to list the items on Etsy instead.

I am still working out the kinks, so please bear with me while I get started.
