Well this weekend is Halloween AND Daylight Savings Time, which means and extra hour of sleep on Sunday, Yeah! I love this time of year. The weather is getting cooler and fireplaces are burning and we will be camping at the beach in the next few weeks.

I made my godson a Halloween Hat this week. I don't think he'll wear if for very long but that's okay it was fun making it any way.

My kit for Dragonsinger is coming along nicely. I received her patterns in the mail and shop for yarn. The handmade portion is coming along nicely. I hope to get it out early, but no too early.

Wow, what a week!

Well, it has been quite a week. My son turned 15 years old on Thursday. Next year we'll be dealing with driving lessons, etc...... We had a Birthday Party for him last night and I had told him he could invite a few friends from school. Well, at one point, we had 24 teenage kids in the back yard. But, he had a great time. Ed made a fire in our portable fire pit and the kids sat around and had a good old time.

On the knitting front, Round 2 of Shuntbumping is today but I will only have a year to work on my project and then I'm taking a class at Knit Affair. I am making a Frankenstein hat for Anthony.

As for Rowan, my spoilee, I finally found the patterns I want to send her. I had some troubles, but I noticed a particular company in her blogs and profile. So I perused their on-line catalog and found the perfect pattern. Now for it to arrive so I can order yarn. I started my part of the project and it is coming along nicely. I hope she likes it!

Where is Winnie

My guess based on the picture and letter is that she is at the Ministry of Magic clearing up the issue of some false accusations.

Go Magpies!
