Halloween sugar low...

Hope everyone had a great halloween. Ours was crazy but great fun. so crazy that we forgot to take photos. Then after the girls went to bed, my husband and I had a nice dinner, wine and ALL the left over candy. So needless to say I am exhausted today. Can't wait to go to sleep. Arghh another knitting night lost to fatigue. And today I spent all afternoon turning the heel on my grey socks (photo tomorrow), then realizing that the turn was off center so I frogged one heel turn and one heel flap + heel turn. Hmmmm probably should have done a nap today instead!

But for today's photo (left), I got some Elann.com Peruvian Highland Wool in the mail yesterday and swatched it last night. It is very nice to knit and doesn't seem itchy scratchy. Although, hard to tell, till actually worn. It made lovely cables and I am going to use this Butterscotch color for my cabled sweater (pictured right).

Hi Linda! Beautiful color and pattern. Always looking forward to your knitting-news. What did the girls wear for Halloween? I got a lot of goblins visiting me, and it was fun. Started off w/ loads of candy and was left w/2 little packs of M&M's. Just the way i like it !!!! Mom.
