Wednesday is the day I set join in with others who, like me, love to knit and read. Check out Ginny's blog to see all the beautiful projects going on this week!
I have been making good headway on my Radiance Shawl and really enjoying the knitting process. I also made a little progress on the other two projects I posted about last week but not much because several non-knitting projects have demanded my attention. I thought I'd include a few pictures that showed the October activities that have caused my knitting to take a backseat this week. Halloween costumes in particular have dipped into the evening time I usually knit since I decided that there will only be so many years that my children will want my help making costumes and took the plunge in the home-made route this year. I am pretty proud of how they are turning out and will share pictures in a few days. Most importantly, my girls are thrilled, probably more thrilled than the costumes warrant, but I'll take any enthusiasm they want to give me. We've got a fox, a spider, a fairy, and two pirate costumes waiting in the wings. Do any other moms out there dress up? I don't usually but we are doing a Trunk-or-Treat at our church and I decided the kids - both mine and the community that hopefully will show up- are worth the work and embarrassment of going as my husband's (modestly attired) pirate wench to go with our pirate ship/car. Wish me luck!
Nothing new being read this week. I actually don't think I even picked up a book at all this week unless you count my Bible, but I have still been listening nightly to bits of The Woman in White (free for Kindle through the link!) at CraftLit.
