I'm not sure how it could already be the end of October, but here we are. Time to take down the Halloween decorations. No oversized inflatables out on the lawn, no Halloween trees or strung lights, just a few seasonal touches on the mantle, here and there. And, always, these vintage crepe paper figures. I laugh to myself as I type *vintage*, because these are from my childhood, my Grandfather's impulse purchase at a Boston bakery counter brought to us on one of his frequent weekend visits to Maine. (That wouldn't make me....? No comments, please.)
Just under the wire, I've finished my Socktoberfest socks. Knitted in OnlIne Supersocke Nepal (#779) from Ann Norling's wonderful Adult Socks II: Play on Ribs (Wide Wale Rib version), they're my last deadline knitting for a while (yippee). Huge thanks to Lolly for hosting this knitalong which got me to pick them up more often than I would've otherwise and move them off the list!
A million things to do this morning and then this awaits...a bit o' ironing. The fun kind!
And another cautionary photo of soaking, bleeding fabric, just one of several yesterday. This time in a prettier color, for someone who was traumatized from last week's warning shot. Happy Halloween!
