Fire and Blood (5/4/14) - not anytime soon
Outlander MKAL (8/8/14)  - possibility of finishing this..the yarn is so yummy

My first finish is my Stripey Goodness fingerless mitts.  I started these in 2015!!!!  So no pattern, I just k2p2 around....The yarn was a kit from Quaere Fibre and The Purple Purl.  The color is called Modern Christmas.  There is actually enough left for me to make a pair of socks too....I had to fix the Ravelry page, as the wrong yarn was listed.  

I just started this this past week......well I actually cast on awhile ago...I pulled it out of the bag and there were some cast-on stitches....The hat is Put a Pom On It by Nancy's a free pattern...The yarn is Dragonfly Fibers Super Traveller in Stone Circle.  I actually have two other skeins, that I'll be making a cowl with, they are the grey and the copper color in this colorway.

So I took back two project bags and a couple of sets of needles.  I'm really trying to clean up some WIPs...some are not even on my list.

I have 5 days for Thanksgiving and we tend not to go anywhere on a good year, so I'll have more time to craft

I also made some last minute Halloween jewelry.  I ended up channeling Charlotte from Charlotte's Web for my "costume.".  

My completed Hexed Halloween Calendar....I loved this so much, I plan on buying another next year.  It was by TeenyButton Studio....all the colors were fabulous!

So that is it for me this week....I do have a couple of short daily videos posted of opening the calendar, but not longer vlog this week...

I'll catch you all next week....Oh I tested negative....and am going back to work on Monday...even with the negative test, I had to stay out for 14 days.....this month is a short month for us....only one week is a full 5 day week of school....
