All Hallows Eve

Saturday the kids went to a neighbor's Hallowe'en party: one as a witch, one as a pirate; both with make-up on. The party ended with them trick-or-treating in our street with all the other kids - they looked great and had a lovely time.

They drew faces on their pumpkins which DH then carved:

Yesterday I spent a quiet evening as DH had gone to work, so just an informal small ritual of candles and wine, remembering those close to me who have gone. I completed the Harebell Stitch scarf, so will be washing and blocking that today, and will be able to leave the SoD2 out 'in public' since DH is away: just as well that will speed things up, as my friend Mimi points out there are only 55 knitting days til Xmas ....

Quite a few of my friends are doing NaNoWriMo, amongst whom are Ania, Alison, Kristina, Lori, Sara: the best of luck to you: perhaps I might have joined you, had I been able to think of a plot ......


  1. Have you got much Christmas knitting planned, or just a few items?

  2. Thanks for the mention but I have to "fess up that I'm not doing NaNoWriMo although I did think that you were. :-)

  3. Mimi, it's all done bar for DD, 1 niece and baby nephew :-) and of course the SoD2 ...
    Lori - nope, can't write a story without a plot cuz my names not James Joyce ;-)

  4. Ugh, every time I think about Xmas knitting it makes me cringe. I'm such a procrastinator. I haven't even finished the planning phase....


Thanks ! I love comments :-)
