Well hello there! It is Sunday.
Look who finished her Halloweenie socks in plenty of time. They are squishy, don't they look squishy? I have already worn them around the house and these are just fantastic. I knit them in a my basic sock pattern: cast on 64, classic heel and round toe. These sock were part of a KAL for Knitabulls Sept/Oct Self-Striping and Personal Sock Yarn Club for the Traveling Sock Knitters.
Still in the KAL theme, I have cast on my October socks for The Sock Knitters Anonymous group and Solid Socks group. It may seem that I am KAL'ing all over the place, which I am. Joining in on this fun has allowed me to discover new designers and knit with yarns that have been sitting in my stash for far too long. Bonus, I end up with some great socks at the end of it all. :)
You may be thinking that all I knit is socks, but in fact I have something non-sock related on the needles. I know, don't faint. The sister put in a request for a cowl. You can tell from the pic that the yarn is thick and the needle size 9! Many who know me, know this is not the norm for me. It feels like I am knitting with two boat oars. I like skinny yarn and skinny needles, but that's just me. Although, I can see the allure of knitting something like this, as it is knitting up fairly quick.
In the food department I am gearing up for Fall, despite the fact that it is still in the 90s here. I choose to pretend. So this weekend I fired up the dutch oven and made this soup. I have made it before so I won't share the pics. It really is a perfectly simple and rustic soup. Then..I made this pie!
Really...we have knitting, soup and pie, my Fall dream is coming true! If you would like to pretend with me then enjoy this song or go visit Kate for her week of leaves.
P.S. A couple of people have asked about the stitchmaker, they are Downton Abbey stitchmarkers from this lovely shop on Etsy!
