Complaint by Numbers

Happy Halloween!

I’m sitting on my couch, pretty far inot a bottle of wine, enjoying a Ghost Hunters special while talking with my friend Lisa (who, in Montreal, is watching the same special). I’m not really a paranormal buff, but this show (and Paranormal State) seems to suck me in.

I’m also mostly done with both the socks and slippers for Matt and my mother, and have begun knitting a sweater (Carolyn from Knitty).

I also made pumpking cupcakes with chocolate frosting. The cupcakes came from this recipe, and the chococlate was a simple buttercream. The cupcakes came out wonderfully! I have to admit, pumpkin might be one of my new favorite foods.

We had around 8 trick-or-treaters this year in three groups (two individuals, and then a group that piled into a minivan and drove around). This was a pretty high number for us. Fortunately, there are plenty of Reeses left for me, 🙂


Yarn Adventures of the Week

I’m not ashamed to say that I don’t necessarily buy the classiest yarn. I’m still looking for a job, and my fiancee is just starting out his business (though it’s going well!). So, I’ve been purchasing a lot of Red Heart Super Saver yarn these days, to quell my need to knit as well as satisfy my guy that I’m not just sitting here wasting money instead of looking for a job. It’s mostly not true.

I have recently started thinking about Halloween, though, and all of the exciting things there is to knit for that lovely holiday. So far, I’m thinking I’ll knit myself a fun costume. Or at least the accessories for a costume. I’m thinking animal themes will be the easiest to tackle. I’ll update here as I go!
