I need ...

sigh,...I need warm coffee

The heater control blew in my car, so it's in the garage getting a new one today to the tune of over $400 :(

Only Oct 10 yesterday and we had snow and flurries all afternoon, making for a lot of bitchy and depressed people...including me. I figured I should hang on til I got home and knew Curly would give me some laughs romping in the first snowfall. That's always so cute. I took a little video of him and put it up on YouTube here. Too funny.

I crocheted a lot over the weekend, making a hat and scarf for Brooke, which turned out really cute. She's only 8 and she's itching to learn how to crochet. She's mastered the knitting knobby thing so her mom is buying her the Knifty Knitter set and she wants to try making a scarf. She even used her own chore money to buy two balls of yarn, and was excited to phone me from Michael's when she bought them, haha.
She loves pink,...of course :) There was enough that I made her a matching hat and also matching one for her doll and added in some more yarn to make a scarf too.

brooke's stuff

They turned out really cute.

I also started a new afghan with a real easy pattern, just to have a long term project sitting around the house I can work on. Made out of RHSS again, but I had picked this stuff up on clearance with discontinued colors for $1 each so can't go wrong. I finished about 1/3 of the ghan just on the weekend.

new afghan oct06

I bought some Paton's SWS wool - that stuff is so soft and the striping is beautiful. I'm knitting some legwarmers (another fixation of mine, hehe).
The hat pattern I used was from this mag.

That's it for coffee's ready and I'm about to take a swan dive into the cup. Have a great day!!
