And a Hippy Halloween too!


After much thought and pondering about the contents of my wardrobe, I ended up reprising last year's costume and going all hippy. But of course, since the Big Hair Cut, I had to stop by a costume store and buy a wig to complete the look. The rest of the gear? All my own. Which is somewhat worrying. What you can't see in the photo is that I'm also wearing the rainbow socks that I knitted for Terry. And very nice they feel too.
Here's a close up of me clowning around once Terry got home. It was a pretty fun evening, despite Terry working late and missing all the fun. I handed out candy til around 7:15, when the rain put a halt to the trickle of late trick or treaters, and then, still in full hippy gear, headed out to Stitch'n'Bitch, where a bunch of us were planning on showing up and knitting. Sadly I was either too late or too early, as I was the only knitter there ... and the only person dressed up. So I took a deep breath and used all my extrovert energy to sit and work on the green cable/lace scarf for 45 minutes until giving up at 8:30 and heading back home.

Oh, and here's how much of the chocolate still remains. I'm impressed with my restraint!

In other knitting news, the Booga Bag is finished but not felted. I may try and do that tonight, so look for more pics soon. Once I'm actually organized enough to have a list of who's getting what for Christmas and what needs to still be knitted, then I may even treat myself to casting on for a new pair of socks too. I've been so jealous of all the Socktober fun that folk have been having. I suppose I could always allocate some socks as Christmas gifts and get both things done that way....

You look fantastic. I sent the photo to Pete and he couldn't guess who it was, even with hints (she's been in our house before, that is her natural hair colour. . . ).

Great costume! You look very "hip"! ;) I didn't dress up or hand out candy. What a party pooper I am.

Good wig. Ok then - teach me how to knit - can you do it online? I have NO clue how to do it....and since everyone is telling me I should start and since you're the great knit guru.....

ps - I'm at Gambado with Mum and Oz at the mo (using their free internet). Mum has been on the dodgems and bounced on the trampoline, slid down a large slide and is currently in the ball pool. She is a born again child
