Happy Birthday, Halloween, Crap-Fest, Scout Spoiler

My Trick-or-Treat girls...our little chicken will be a fluffy bunny tonight for the outdoor candy free-for-all...kind of chilly here in the mid-west.

It also happens to be my husband's birthday today - can you imagine, what a cool day to celebrate a birthday! Getting all dressed up, getting candy - plus a cake - plus presents? Nice. He declined to have a photo on the blog - so in light of the "crappy" day we have had - I will honor his request. You see our eldest DD came into our bedroom at 1:15am to inform that our darling dog had an accident on the floor - so our planned afternoon off of work of lunch and movies switched up to an afternoon of carpet cleaning and floor scrubbing - after an early morning rendevous of the same sans the rented carpet machine. Good stuff. But thankfully, our dog is the best so he shall be forgiven once his banishment to the garage ends post-cha cha. I know, too much information - but to truly appreciate the day I have had - well, you need details. *giggle*


On a good, no great note - got my Scout Swag today - shee-ya, it's gorgeous *happy dance* I think it may be the best so far. The colors make me think of apples and pears, a spicy fall palette. Also included was a pattern by Lisa Shobhana, famed author of Yarnplay. And Elemm from Knitter's Uncensored graciously wrote up a chart. Another for the queue. Gosh, fellow Ravelers, how big is your queue?

Happy Halloween! Your girls look so cute. My husband started off his day cleaning up cat vomit. Lucky me... I slept through it!

It would take me 2 lifetimes to knit through my ravelry queue. I've stopped thinking of it as a "queue" -- it's really a wish list. Or inspiration list.

Love that little Chicken!

My ravelry queue is completely ridiculous. I'll never get through it all. (Even if I didn't have knitting ADD.)

Oh those trick or treaters are too cute! I loved how on the Colbert Report last night he was calling trick or treaters Pagan Panhandlers and referred to the as Pre-Hobos!:)

OK, now I'm just pissed that I don't belong to the Scout yarn club:(

Oh my goodness, that chicken outfit is so cute!!

The new yarn looks bright and pretty. Any ideas of a pattern for it?

Now, that's a happy chicken! :) My best friend's birthday is also on Halloween, and she takes a more negative approach. She's pissed off that people are partying for reasons other than her birthday!
Also, I'm drooling over your Scout's Swag yarn...

Happy halloween. My queue is truly terrifying over 60 patterns at least. But really am I going to knit all those things? No, I'm just thinking about knitting them.

Happy Halloween! It's my parents' anniversary, and my nephew's birthday! :) This explains a lot about me - hee hee!
I'm in denial (maybe it should be the river in Egypt) about photographing my stash, and adding projects to ravelry. I have enough to try to keep them going before Christmas! :)

Happy Belated Halloween and Birthday! That chicken costume is too cute :) I think of my Ravelry queue as a wish list, not a to-do list!
