Weekend Update - Weather and Spooky

The weekend started out well with cool, fall weather and by Sunday had progressed to a taste of winter with a snowy afternoon drive back from Cripple Creek where we had been to see the Halloween play, The Lost Souls of Cripple Creek.

As usual the play was wonderful and was followed by the infamous Halloween Olio. It was great. The drive home after dinner left a lot to be desired and I was glad to get the car parked in front of my place.

I spent some time plotting ideas for holiday gifts. We are looking for feltable yarns for part of the gift ideas and think we have found the answer at KnitPicks with their line of Wool of the Andes.

I finished the pair of felted clogs for the shop sample in ChocTurqs. All I have to do now is felt one and return the pair to the shop. Then I can bring home the purple pair that are for me. Next up is the pair of felted flip flops.

While I was at the shop this weekend a lady came in with a buttoned shawl that she had purchased, interested in learning how to make them. So I am designing a pattern off of the finished item and will be teaching a class on that soon. It is a really neat item and very simply done. The addition of fabulous buttons is what will make it special.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Batten down the Hatches - it's gonna get ugly over the next couple of days.

My fridge is full and I have yarn. Wonder if we will be lucky enough to get a "snow day?"
