October Happenings.

Just like that, the last day of October is upon us.  How did that happen?  The month seemed to fly by, probably because it was a busy one around here.

There were quite a few soccer games.  I've been meaning to share with you some of the pictures of Lil' Guy at his game when I was visiting a few weeks ago.  Before I show you, I should note that he wasn't quite himself (e.g., falling asleep at lunch), the game was during his normal nap time, and it was 90 degrees out.

Go Get that Ball!

There he is chasing after the ball.


He's getting right in the mix there.  Well, um....if you look closer...

No pushing!
Yeap, that's him PUSHING....hey get out of my way?!  Goodness.

But really, this one is my favorite!

Get up!

Apparently he has never done this before.  He must have been really tired. Oh, 4 year olds!

There were also quite a few trips to the pumpkin patch this past month.  I think perhaps 6 or 7 trips?!!

Cutest pumpkins!

There was some knitting.

Summer WInd

Anzula Squishy

I can't say enough wonderful things about this Anzula Squishy.  I loved it before blocking my Summer Wind, but if it is possible, I love it even more after.  The color, the bloom of the yarn, just lovely.

There is a bit of secret knitting going on as well.  The evenings are starting to get cool, and knitting by the fire is one of my favorite things.

Favorite Knitting Spot

Yes, that is Kollage Yarns Lofty that I'm knitting with.  Lofty, soft, and on size 10 needles, it is divine!

In IGK news, our new knitalong is about to start!  I'm so excited that the group picked Winter Wonder and a holiday gift theme!  Come join us for fun and prizes (and an IGK coupon code!).

This week is Interweave Knitting Lab, right here in San Mateo!  Right next to my work too!  Literally, the next building over :)  I'll be there hanging out with Lorajean of Knitted Wit (she'll be carrying all of my IGK patterns!).  We'll probably do a meet-up on Saturday, but I'll be there Friday too before the Nine Rubies Event!  Did I mention that Nine Rubies will be carrying our favorite Plucky Knitter Primo yarn!!!!  I didn't sign up for any classes...most of the ones I was interested in are sold out, but it should be a nice knitting weekend I think.

I can't believe tomorrow is Halloween.  On a Monday too.  Blah!  I really wish I was up trick or treating with Lil' Guy!  My brother and SIL go all out for Halloween.  They were just starting the house decorating when I was there a few weeks ago.


Seriously. The poor neighbor kids

I hope my brother sends me updated pictures!  There is even a fog machine at night, with a strobe light!

Instead I'll be hanging with these cuties...



So what has been happening in your October?  Anything fun planned for Halloween?

Happy Halloween!!

Well - we had no 90 degree days, that's for sure! I don't think I could bear that!

Whatcha do to your hair? Just more layers or lots of cutting?
