Here is what came. Woo hoo! I was just playing in my stash just this morning.
If there's no post for a while, this is probably the reason. Plus, the two posts today should cover me for a while. Don't call the authorities; I'm sure I'm okay!
So I added the little tuft on his head, knotted securely. I think it gives him some fun. The eyes don't show up well but are duplicate stitched in.
Here is a set of "wristers" or whatever. My oldest girl has been wearing them to school but traded them in on a costume for Halloween today. It's the only reason they're photographed. Pattern from "Weekend Knitting".
And here is the dreaded sock. I'm on the foot, probably mid-way through the decrease on the instep. It's not doing much for me but I want to finish one of them and then find a one-legged friend to give it to.
Here is the annual parade of pumpkins. I free-handed a moose well, okay, I had a photo of one and enlarged and copied it, but with my hand. Craig carved. I think it is just darling. Might become a Halloween pumpkin tradition.

Here is the view of the bottom of the one -- I thought it looked pretty neat. The red and white one is some random stripes etc I thought would be fun and that pattern is called Labrador Diamonds that I think I got from a book of mitten patterns.
This is the "South Seas Table Runner" finished. It will eventually have some shells or buttons on the edges. When I finish my sock!! The candle is one of my favorites from a store in Peddler's Village in Lahaska, it is a MOOSE.
Oh, and another new discovery in my own backyard. What a cool place! By my own confession I am not a yarn shop maven but this one was completely set up by color. A warm room, a cool room, black/white and neutrals. Fun stuff!

Here is the WTC site. I kind of like the NYC hat reflection. Amazing to see the rubble still there. Very sobering.
Here are Lindsay Steph and lady Liberty. Great weather and a very nice Liberty Island and Ellis Island excursion.
Here we are and I have really bad wind-blown hair! NYC skyline (financial district) behind us.
Here we are in the Ferris Wheel inside the ToysRUs in Times Square.
Here is Paige hamming for the camera; Times Square was really cool.
Her shirt says "I didn't ask to be a princess, but if the crown fits..."

I look forward to some photos of the yarn store in Myrtle Beach that I didn't make it to. Thank you in advance for my vicarious visit there!
I have a mistake (dropped stitch) in my sock and I'm seriously considering abandonment. And possibly destruction. I think I dropped the stitch doing the lace pattern so I can't even just go back and catch it. sigh.
