To lots of people Halloween means lots of things. To children it is candy and dressing in costume. To teenagers it is Hell Night before Halloween and seeing if you can still go trick or treating, while your mom says you are too old.
It is parties where we can put on someone else for a while.
But to me it is sad.
My father got hurt on Halloween Night in 1957, and died 5 days later of his injuries. He was driving too fast and missed a curve, but not the oak tree.
So to you children, have fun, eat too much candy and make some happy memories.
To you who drive, make some happy memories also.
So it won't be your child writing this so many years later.

Cold Already

Here in Kentucky we went from Summer to Winter when I was not looking. The good news is that it is knitting weather. And I am ready to knit.

I got that Pretty Thing pattern from The Yarn Harlot and have one about half done. And it is a Pretty Thing.

It is charted and I have never done any charted pattern before. So I made a copy and notes. And I am taking my time. It is not very big, but I am having a blast. It is nice to have fun when I knit. I really think this will be one of my very favorite things to do.

Pick up sticks

Do you ever notice that if you have a bad back everything falls out of your hands and lands on the floor? Where you have to go pick it up. I think it is bad Karma that does this to me. I was brought up to be nice and polite but find myself being grumpy. Not letting a car out when I can, not letting someone go in a door before me. And I am pretty sure the back/floor thing is Karma letting me know.
I am working on socks, lots of pairs of socks. I took pictures and will add some today.
The self striping yarn socks had to be frogged or I had to find a new friend with size 75 feet.
I tend to forget that gauge means something even in socks. I know there is a lesson there. And I will ponder it, and let you know what happens.
