I hope everyone that celebrated Halloween had fun.
Even though my kids are all grown up, they still like to carve a pumpkin
as I found out when they all wanted to come for dinner on Thursday.
So if you can picture 5 adults, all in the kitchen while dinner is
being cooked. There was pumpkin
innards everywhere, they were all bickering over who had the
best hollowing out tool or carving
I really wish now that I had them all on camera, so you could see
that these adults have not truly
grown up yet. But they all had fun and the pumpkins looked great.
These are everyone's, including mine and Flynns.
They didn't take long to make and they fit really nice. Now I think I have some requests for a couple more pairs. Best get that hook working overtime.
And they're all here again on Sunday, for more food and fireworks.
I've bought myself a wool winder. I had bought quite a few skeins
of yarn when I went to the knitting and
stitching show and my friend suggested I get one. It was brilliant,
I had the skein over the back of the chair and just sat and
wound the winder, easy peasy. At the end of it I had loads of lovely,
neat looking little balls of yarn.
That's also a pic of Flynn in his Halloween outfit, dressed as a
pumpkin elf, I think watching Daddy and Aunty with their
pumpkins wore him out.
And lastly I had a go at crocheting some fingerless gloves, it took me a
few attempts and a lot of huffing and puffing and ripping out and
starting again. I first found a pattern for some gloves in a magazine
that I really liked the look of and thought I would give them ago.
I don't know if it was because I wasn't reading the pattern right or if it
was my crocheting tension, but they were way to small and
even the measurements that they were
giving didn't seem right. So in the end I found another pattern with
measurements that seemed a bit more realistic and I'm really
pleased with how they turned out.
I've since had a couple more requests for my gloves, by the girls, so I best get that hook working some overtime.
Have a lovely weekend everyone. I'm going to try and take some pics of our fireworks on Sunday and if you have any, I hope you enjoy yours.
