Exhibit A: Dorky, cheesy grin pictures in 100 degree heat at the pumpkin patch. Yes, you read that right. 100 degrees. We pretty much live in hell.
Exhibit B: Carving pumpkins with Daddy, while Mommy sat and knit a sock (instead of working on the mounting pile of Christmas knitting) and drank a glass of merlot. The 'Nut named her pumpkin, Cat. I'm not seeing the resemblance. Whatevs.
Exhibit C: Getting a super cute haircut. (More than one pic just for you Sarie!)
Exhibit D: Making vegan vanilla cupcakes with vegan chocolate "buttercream" frosting and topping them with non-vegan (ehem) sprinkles. Recipe is from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. These are the BEST cupcakes evah. Cupcake liners are from Martha Stewart at Michael's...they probably have some on clearance now that you can get for next year. I can't wait to see the Christmas ones!
And if I hadn't started decreasing the toe on my current sock (aka The Christmas Avoidance Project) too quickly, I would have some sock pics to show you. Does anyone have a favorite toe "recipe" that you want to share? Sometimes I do a regular toe...you know....knit to the last stitch, K2tog and then K1....followed by k1, ssk. Lately I've been doing the toe from the Charade sock pattern...it's a bit different....but since I have to rip back on this sock, I'd like to try something different. Any suggestions?
