October review

With October gone and November here I can’t help but think what the new month will bring. October was such a productive month for me, I can only hope that November will bring me the same knitting gratification.
November is always my favorite month, for 2 reason. The first:My birthday!! This year I am turning 30, so I am very excited that it is November! My day o’ birth is the 11th which here in the US equals Veterans Day. So when I was little I always thought my birthday was such a big deal and I was so awesome that they let everyone stay out of school that day. What a disappointment to learn I was just a regular person haha. But I still make a big deal about my birthday and this year will be even bigger of a deal 🙂
The second reason is Thanksgiving! I love to eat! I mean I really LOVE to eat, so thanksgiving is my kind of holiday. The best part is my mother in laws stuffing! Man that junk is good!

This November Is bringing a lot more goodness this year. One: I have so many orders and can’t wait to see them come to life! Several I get to design and pick colors, and I love being able to let my creativity run free and have others appreciate it. I also finally get to go to the neurologist and see what the heck is going in with me! Oh I can’t wait. I already know what I will be knitting during that appointment haha.

The best part about this November is that it is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who!!! Man oh man, I can NOT wait for that! November 23, what a great day it will be!!!

Here is a recap of Octobers FOs:










Happy November everyone! Hope the month brings great things to you all!


I just joined my second KAL but the first one I will actually do.

I joined one over the summer to make a shawl and quickly realized I am not the shawl making type. I believe I did the first 2 weeks and then ripped it out and made a hat. I have zero follow through for large projects. I always say I am going to knit up these amazing scarves or shawls and it never happens. One day I will learn my lesson and stick to hats and mittens.

Anyway, I joined a holiday KAL to knit dish cloths. Dish cloths I finish. Since I plan to give out cloths for gifts this seemed like the perfect KAL for me.

It is The Yarn Attics “Holiday Dish cloth Mystery KAL” . She plans to release 3 patterns a week for 4 weeks. 12 patterns in all.

She has the materials listed and I have most of what is needed already, so I am basically set to begin come October 1st.
