Flower Baskets.

So... it's Friday night and I'm chilling out at home... Literally. Chilling. My apartment is a tid bit nippy and I'm thinking about turning on the heat. Anyway. I've been knitting here and there. I finished the Soft Seafoam scarf, but I'll wait until I have natural light to take photos. It's so depressing that it's getting dark so early in the evening. Especially when I have to work all day. Hopefully tomorrow I will get to spend sometime outside in the glorious fall weather. Oh, yes... knitting. So I started a Flower Basket Shawl. I had some leftover Koigu and I couldn't let it sit un-utilized so I bought some MORE Koigu to make a shawl. Makes complete sense, no? Needing to buy more Koigu gave me an excuse to visit the knit shops in Chestnut Hill near Philly. I still need to scout out the LYSs around here. I'm going to stripe my FBS ala Charlotte's Web. Hopefully, my math worked out and I'll use up almost all of the Koigu in this pretty little shawl/scarf.

Flower Basket Shawl beginnings.

And I just wanted to include this photo because it's almost Halloween. And there is a pumpkin in the picture. And we are cute.

Carving pumpkins with my Eric.

Unfortunately, we were a little too enthusiastic about carving pumpkins early and they have since wilted and died.... Oh well. They looked really cool while they lasted!!!

Ooooo... spooky.

Happy Halloween!!!

P.S. We did not carve all of those pumpkins. It was a pumkin party. Artists from left to right: Me (Manda), Eric, Christa/Cal, Kaitlin, ... girl who's name I forgot... Beth?, and Sach. We also had warm apple cider and home-made pumpkin pie. Dude. I fall.

Quick knittin'

I had a wonderful weekend. I did nothing. But it was wonderful. I spent time with my guy and mostly relaxed. Friday we went out to dinner and I ate sushi! Sushi!!! Who knew I'd like that? Then we watched Sling Blade. Mmmmhm. Good movie, even though it's a bit sad. On Saturday, we got TONS of rain in Eastern PA from Hurricane Tammy. There were many roads flooded. We went to the mall to walk about and on the way back home we had to divert several times because of flooded roads. It was a little freaky but we made it home safely. Then PSU kicked ace which was awesome to see... I can't believe how well they are doing. GO STATE. Sunday we watched yet another movie, Tombstone. I'd have to say that I didn't like that one as much as I expected too. Owell.

I got to knit this weekend too. Yoohoo. I started this scarf on the way to State College a couple weekends ago, but I wasn't happy with the needle size/pattern. So the smaller "scarf" you see on the left is the swatch. I finally tweaked the pattern to my liking and got started on the scarf using the second skein on Saturday morning because I didn't want to rip the first one. It was a quick knit on size US10 needles and I finished the first skein during our marathon couch potato session this weekend. It's SO SOFT. I can't wait till it's done.

So soft!

So now I must study. I have an exam tomorrow. Oh boy. ♥

PS. Thanks for all the comments about my nano! It's great! I love it! Such fun! And if anyone really wants, I could post a little pattern for the cozy... I used a bit of Elann Esprit I had laying around and an eyelet pattern I made up off the top of my head.
