Did you do anything special for Halloween?

What's on your hooks and/or needles this week?

Anything new?

Anything finished?

Have a great weekend.

icillage is working worse for me again. It never did let me comment at the complaints link, and now Safari is only letting me "quick reply" and not showing other than the first post. Did I mention that the hat I was making for DH was called "Pumpkin"? It has a non-costumy version that's basically a wide-ribbing hat with flaps. He must like it. It's not quite finished, and he's already wearing it on cold mornings. (I wove in the ends last night. I plan on adding long braid-ties in the traditional Scandanavian way, and maybe a pom-pom. I incorporated some of my handspun in a stripe. I finished the thin wool yarn I was spinning, but there only appears to be 50 yards.(It weighed in at 0.7 oz. Wonder what I can do with that.

Got it finished today. No pom-pom, but the braids turned out good (I used more handspun).

We went to a trunk or treat at a local church.  Still owe the kids a bag of candy. They enjoyed handing out candy to the little ones.

I still have the same projects on the hook.  I am trying to resist putting anything on the needles right now until I finish the Stitch Sampler Afghan. 

Nothing new and nothing finished for me, but I am seeing the ending to the afghan!  ;) I am thinking about starting my granddaughters cardigan next.

Happy Knitting & Crocheting!

So great that DH likes the hat so much that he wore it without the ends being woven in! :) So nice you were able to use some of your handspun yarn.
