Happy Halloween

We are trick or treating with friends in their neighborhood!

Ben was going to be a punk rocker but I decided a skeleton would be more fun. I mean easier! Carter has a skeleton pj outfit- that has glow in the dark bones on it. There was a cute monkey outfit but he won't wear anything on his head so it wouldn't be very cute with the hood.

I am going to be my standby cat! fun- um I mean easy!

Children's Museum

Ben and I spent about 3 hours at the children's museum today. I have to say getting there early is a plus. By the time we were ready to head out it was pretty busy.

I think Ben had a great time.

I had a nice time but I have to say the parents there are a little annoying. One lady was saving a shopping cart full of goodies (there were only 4 carts total for about a dozen or so kids) while her daughter was over running the cash register. As Ben touches the handle of the cart we hear " I'm saving this for my daughter" giggle giggle. Seriously I was like it's time to leave the grocery store section of this joint.

Over all it was good I just had to take some deep breaths and hope the annoying parents would stop following us to each new station.

We had lunch in the little cafe. No Pizza today! Sorry! :(

We will go again- maybe not for a month - but we will go again. Like I said Ben had a great time!

As promised-

Here is my first Cowl. I just saved one as my favorites on Ravelry! I might be obsessed!

The photos are not the best. sorry was trying to hurry

Bug and I got haircuts today. Went short on this guy since his hair grows so fast. He's going to be a punk rocker for Halloween!

My new favorite things to knit are Cowls. I can't wait to get this Book! I ordered it and it should be here next week!

I discovered it while reading one of my blogs on lunch and had to order it immediately. I can't wait.

I'm currently making one from a free pattern I found on line. I had some left over yarn from Christmas gifts past. The drag is I don't have enough to finish. That means I have to buy more of the same color. I do like the color so that is good. I just want to buy new colors if I have to buy yarn.

I might have to venture over to Alberta tomorrow and stock up! Well enough to finish the current Cowl and maybe one other color. I have to wait and see what kind of yarn the patterns in the book call for as I have bought yarn in the past thinking I will use it and then never do.

Happy to have the knitting needles back in hand.
