Hi all! I hope you had a great and safe Halloween if you celebrated! We handed out candy and watched Corpse Bride and Shaun of the Dead. I LOVE both of those movies. It was fun overall and we actually had a lot of Trick or Treaters which is unusual. Anyway, it's late as I forgot it was Tuesday (I write this the night before) because my Monday night knitting group met tonight due to Halloween.
Here's what I'm working on:
My Rhombi is coming along great. It fits awesome so far and now it's the boring part of knitting the body. I have a few inches under the arms, so not a ton, but I'm plowing along. For those of you new, I'm using Candy Skein Delicious yarn in the colorway Brain Freeze and it's for the Candy Skein October through December 15th KAL. I love the construction so far. So easy, though I'm a little nervous about picking up all of the front and neck stitches. The sleeve holes look a little odd in this picture as they're overlapping and squished.
These are my mother in law's Christmas present. I love this pattern, as I mentioned last week, because it's so easy to remember, but looks great. It's the Hermione's Everyday Socks pattern which is free on Ravelry. I'm using Candy Skein Yummy fingering in colorway Royal Rock Candy, as mentioned last week.
I also wanted to say, for those interested, I'm hosting a sock KAL/CAL for the month of November. I figured I have to do a bunch of socks for Christmas so it would be awesome to have other people working along with me to push me to finish. The only requirement is that you use Candy Skein yarn. You can use any pattern, and I suggested a few in the KAL thread (linked above) that are awesome patterns and free. I'd love if some of you who've wanted to buy yarn, or who already have a skein with no projects attached to join along!
Anyway, that's it for me! I hope everyone has a great day. Happy knitting!
