Tricks and Treats

It's time for Halloween.  We got in the festive mood this year and decorated the house.  We carved pumpkins this year too.  

Here's my spooky Jack pumpkin

And Ed's dragon

After we were done carving, I roasted pumpkin seeds.  Yummy treat!

Pretty in Pink

This is what she gave me:

I had some extra purple yarn of the same brand that I added in for variety.
This was the end result:

The beret is my favorite.  I want to make one in my size. But probably not pink.

Happy Fall

The maple in my back yard is exploding with color today.
