This past week I finally finished the infinity cowl that has been my throw-in-the-bag knitting project since last spring.

Perfect timing; there’s a chill in the air and we had our first frost over the weekend.

I am deep into the Christmas knitting.  Three hats are complete, and I’m almost finished with the first slipper sock.

It’s my first time doing thrumming and although it’s a little fiddly, it’s pretty straightforward stuff.  I think these socks will be crazy warm.  Probably a little slippy too.  Need to think about that a bit.

Notice the videogame in the photo above; Larson got it for his birthday and the textures are AMAZING.  There is yarn (in knitted and crochet form), felt, leather, denim, canvas, corduroy…and who knows what else.  Watching videogames almost always makes me dizzy.

Yes, he’s five.

Saturday we went to the annual Boo at the Zoo event.  So. Much. Fun!!

This year we carved plastic (well, foamcore) pumpkins.  So much easier.  There’s a lot of dust, but there’s no slop.  I don’t think the squirrels will be interested in them, either.  Win-win.
