Hello Fall








This is a sampling of all the fun we have been having this season so far.  I forgot to bring the camera with us apple picking but that was really fun too. Tomorrow we go to a fair.

 I have been slowly working on Halloween costumes.  Stella's costume is almost finished and Luke's costume has aways to go.  I enjoy making the costumes more than I could have ever imagined. 

The only finished item I have to show is this pair of mittens.  And it is just the shell with no lining.  But they are now finished because I have become allergic to the yarn.  So I am skipping the lining and I will give them as a gift as is.  I was heartbroken when I first realized I was allergic but I have the rest of my life to make myself mittens so really it is okay.  And they only took so long because I put them down for 6 months or so.  I guess I can never have an alpaca farm (the yarn is alpaca) but I already have way to many hobbies so it wouldn't have worked anyway. 

I hope you are all enjoying the start of the season!

Allergies are a real pain, but you are lucky is only a type of yarn and you can still use the rest, can't you ?

The mittens are lovely !

Oh no! You cannot have an alpaca farm?! That's the dream of all the knitters out there. :))) But seriously, sorry about your allergies to the yarn because those mittens look beautiful!
