Veronica's new fella came with us to see the Christmas trees in Green Cove Springs. We visited the knitting group tree (and all was still intact), too. We all hung out at our house, watching football and relaxing. The weather was cool and crisp and the trees were so pretty...feeling more in the Christmas mood, that's for sure!
The kids are going to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party tonight...although their sweaters aren't really all THAT ugly. Hey, at least I wasn't asked to knit anything! Whew!

Maybe it's Joey's hair-do.

Got a Madonna song in your head? You totally get Veronica's costume!
I took these photos Saturday night before their party. Last night, they had percussion practice. They're too old to trick or treat anyway.

Justine was with us, too! Here we are taking photos before our march down the field. Pictures taken with my phone...not bad, eh?

We're having a spider issue this October. And those webs!

I finished Xenia. Another wonderful pattern by Vanessa Smith. The yarn is a sport weight by Ewephoric Fibers. I picked it up at the Florida Fiber In. LOVE the yarn...great twist on it, showed off the border pattern beautifully.

See Joey? Ok, kinda hard to miss him. Um...he's not the little guy in back, but the big guy, front and center. (second smallest bass drum)

You get it? Ones Two...Class of 2012...12...now, you get it?
Joey, of course, said, "Ones Two...that's stupid." So Veronica shot back, "Oh yeah, let's see your class come up with something good for 14!" That's be a toughie. Maybe "The Ones Four Success"? I'll keep you posted.

Honey Cowl (This is very nice in Malabrigo!) Photo to come, sorry! I did a shorter version than the pattern shows.
THEN I knit my Six Socks in September and a beret from the new Coastal Knits per-order package. I'll post photos of that one next time.
Paper Moon (new socks JUST came out with Knitty Deep Fall 2011) in bright pink Madelinetosh sock (oh my!)
I'm making this with Woolease by Lion Brand. I know some of my knitsibs might frown upon making this in a "low end" yarn...but this yarn is really great. I made a Brambles Beret from some cream colored Woolease and it turned out beautiful (can't wait to wear it with my red coat this winter).
This one is a deep royal blue...with my red coat, it'll look great too!
Xenia (with my newly acquired yarn from the Florida Fiber In...the green stuff)
Here she is in her greenie...I love this picture!
A lot of these small projects will become Christmas presents...probably. I'm using all my yarny resistance not to cast on two or three new projects!
Help! Someone talk me down!!

This was my STEAL!! I got it at the auction at the Fiber In (for probably $10 under retail). It's Wollmeise, color is super deep navy called "My old blue Jeans" (the color is more like new-new jeans), 574 yds, fingering weight (superwash) merino. This is the first yarn I've owned that I'm just giddy about!! I feel compelled to wait for the "perfect" pattern to come along...so I'm in no rush to find a project. I'll just ooh and aah over it for a while!
This yarn is only available in the USA at The Loopy Ewe in St. Louis, MO. (I believe, someone correct me if I'm wrong.) I went to their website to see the actual retail and they're sold out.
