Checking In

Well, October did prove to be a very busy month.  I thought many times of posting something but I was always pulled in other directions.  Becoming a Godmother, seeing good friends get married, and a wonderful camping trip with great friends made this a very spectacular month!  I'm looking forward to finishing off the year with more good stuff (and good knitting)!

I've started working on Christmas knitting, but got sidetracked by camping hat knitting this month.  One for myself, one for the hubby and one for my Godson.  Guess which one is my favorite...

I was very glad I made him this hat because our first morning in Palo Duro Canyon was the coldest and his little teeth were chattering!  This hat pattern is called  Tinker by Woolly Wormhead and it is part of her Twisted Woolly Toppers collection.  It was a lot of fun to knit!  There are a lot of other hats in the collection that I am looking forward to knitting.

It is also Socktober and I had planned on at least starting the new Mystery Sock pattern by Kristin Kapur.  I've got the yarn, but never got the chance to cast-on, but one of the Christmas knitting items I'm working on is socks for my hubby so I should have at least one sock completed in October!  Once I finish the other sock, I'll cast on the mystery socks.  

I must be developing a serious sock knitting addiction because Cookie A. just released her new book as a pdf file and I purchased it right away.  The actual book will be released in November.  So many great socks to knit and the photography is beautiful.  I love my Monkey socks, and next I want to make some knee high socks next!  I don't know when I'll get to knitting something from this book, but I vow to make several things from it in 2011.

Well, there are probably 20 other things I had planned on writing about, but there are many other things to do right now.  So I'll leave you with a lovely view for now.
