fun and done

Its Halloween time! I have never quite outgrown wanting to carve pumpkins but my themes have changed since I was a little girl carving happy faces on my jack-o-lanterns. My friend Rachel came over the other day to carve the pumpkins that we had dumpstered from Trader Joe's and we decided we would both carve our lip tattoos onto our pumpkins;

Here's Rachel carving 'salty':

I also carved a pumpkin that has my train tag on it, which is 'dot'. Aside from enthusiastically creating jack-o-lanterns, I've also been enthusiastically knitting. I finished the lace Montana socks and I am so stoked on the way they turned out.

My dearest one, I am all caught up on your blog and feeling so delighted. I think I know what FTW means and I agree with you as usual. The latest socks are fabu with the yarn (or wool as Auntie Penny would say) really complementing the lace or vice versa. Remember, I bought you that knitting bag that stashes needles because the one we saw had been a gift to the knitter from her aunt. That was another reason I wanted it for you.
Oddly or not, I have the Pacific Northwest shawl pattern and the yarn ready to swatch in Pacific Northwest Forest Green. Like minds again?
Keep on knitting and blogging. You beat the Harlot in my book.
Love ya lots, the 'ru
