Genetics and Knitting


Somewhere out there AL has a relative that passed along her knit genes. I won't even begin to take credit for anything other than enthusiasm for the craft. I dont' know how she knits these beauties....

Here is her Falling Leaves scarf. Purl Bee pattern. She's back to knitting! Last night she showed me a hat she is in the process of knitting up. It is all cables and bumps and what not, and it is gorgeous.

As for me, I am knitting up a pair of socks. Plain as can be, be right up my concentration alley. I'm all about the last week of good weather here in Chicago and the Halloween decorations. Our town really seems to go all out. Whole front yards are devoted to grave markers and silliness. This year, I have the quintessential Witch accessory in my own little black beauty of a cat. So bear with me, more Halloween images to come! And let's just see if I can wait until the actual day to have my very favorite bite size bar: a baby ruth!

I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>

Beautiful scarf! Al is certainly a pro!! I've had that pattern hanging around for a while. Maybe I'll go ahead and knit it.

I would love to see pictures of the Halloween decorations around your neighborhood. I have autumn stuff out but there aren't many decorations around the rest of the neighborhood here.

Pretty scarf!!

I have mixed feelings about Halloween. Some years I think I'd like to dress up, but we are remote enough that we don't get trick or treaters...
