Didn't think it had been that long since my last post.  Let's see, still working on the Citron and the illusion scarf.  Also still working on one of the cardigans from Vogue's early fall issue.  Started a pair of the Octopus Mittens from 60 Quick Knits for Margaret.

Now for a quick summary of finished projects that have been photographed.
 Pair of socks, owed for a couple years now.  Finally finished, just need to actually get to the post to send them.
 The beaded shawl from Vogue Knitting a few years ago.  Yarn is Sophie's Toes in Crimson and I love it.
 Easy Tweedy Cowl in a wool and silk blend that I spun myself. 
Earwarmer headband in Queensland Collection Kathmandu Ultra with a flower in some of my wool/silk handspun.  Just need a button to finish it off.

Margaret and her friend Emma trick-or-treating on Sunday.  Such cute girls :)  Margaret's costume was on sale at One Step Ahead.  I got sparkly gold shoes at Target and black tights and a black turtleneck at Gymboree so she wouldn't freeze.  Luckily it was warmer this Halloween than last, although by the end (and we weren't out that long) I was quite chilly, even with my Hallowig on.
This is a video of Margaret running around our backyard.  She wanted me to take this video.

Sorry this is not a very inspired post, I just figured I should put something up here since it's been over a month.  Oh, I did have my birthday October 24.  Dragging Dave to a birthday movie this weekend.  Do I force him to watch Easy A or The King's Speech or see Red, which I also want to see, but is more of a compromise.  I wish Harry Potter were already out!

My Dave and I loved Red, but it is YOUR birthday!

Sending hugs! nan
