Tons of pictures

Well posting pictures when I should be working. Please don't tell my boss. Halloween was fun. This little dinosaur showed up on my doorstep wanting candy and kisses.
He brought along his sleeping sister dressed as a wormy apple. Hummmm is she wearing an apple hat? Wonder where that came from.
This is her awake and out of her wormy apple outfit. If you're wondering yes I woke her up just so I could snuggle her for a while. I make no excuses for this action. I know you should let sleeping babies get their sleep but yes I woke her up and I'll do it again in a heartbeat.
And last was this dinosaur who really was tired by the time he hit my house so he decided to just sit in the entryway and eat candy. Hey I'd do that all day every day if I could.
And there's been knitting going on around here like crazy. I finished 5 pr of socks for the grandsons but since I've posted pics before and they are all the same yarn and pattern I will not bore you with them. I did some baby washclothes for a virtual baby shower. Can you ever have enough washclothes with babies in the house? Sadly, Kristi and Noel lost one of the triplets so we're knitting for 2 little ones now. Send some good thoughts and wishes their way.
Finished a pair of socks for a secret pal. Opal Uni in a waffle pattern. Thinking of making a pair for myself maybe next year when I get a chance.
And some more fruit hats for Kristi's twins when they reach about 2 yr olds. Honestly they are the last fruit hats of the year .... unless someone else just needs to have one for their kid.
If you are wondering why I have so much stinking red superwash colorado vail yarn it's because I was at Webs last year ..... enough said to those who have been to Webs. If you haven't let me tell you it's the meca of yarn and all things fiber. Worth a trip no matter where you live.

And my last thought is this: they set up a do not call list. If you don't want calls at your house selling you stuff you put yourself on the do not call list. Great no annoying calls ...... except during election time. Why? Because the politicians decided that they should be exempt from the do not call list. You can get all the political calls and polling question calls they want to make.

Being an independent in a state with some very tight political races I can tell you that I get up to 3 calls a day from those prerecorded things. They don't make it past the first sentence before I hang up but really HOW FRIGGIN' ANNOYING!! I'm not voting for a couple people just because they pissed me off!!! Can't wait til next Wednesday just so it'll be over with.

Very cute little dinosaurs and I absolutely love the idea of a wormy-apple costume for the baby. So cute!

Awww she is such a cutie! How long did the sugar high last for the boys? ;)

I am pretty sick of political commercials on tv too. Election day can't come soon enough!

Love the socks, the kids are cute too!
Don't let the elections get too you. :-)

Love the Halloween pics you shared. So fun! Great baby cloths too! DO you follow a certain pattern for your fruit hats? Or is is second nature at this point? I was thinking of making some from a pattern I have here at home for my niece....

Love the baby cloths and the hats! I'm with you, I HATE those recorded calls. Last election I actually had a live person call for political pushing... I told them that we were on the "do not call" list and was made aware that politicians are exempt. What kind of bull &#$@ is that?! I usually get 2 or 3 a day...

Love the kid pictures, you can tell they are all related. Love the hats and the cloths and you are right there is no such thing as too many washcloths with kids in the house. I am knitting a pair of socks right now for my daughter in the blueberry waffle. I love that pattern, it looks good on any yarn.

OMG the wormy apple is soooo cute! The dinosaurs were cuties as well, but the apple kinda stole my heart. Awww. :)

Is there a pattern for the washcloths or did you just make it up? They're so cute and a great idea. I guess I'm asking for a lead on the pattern if there is one.
