And what else is coming up? Last year for Christmas I made felted clutch purses. Tuesday night at Insanknitty I bought the pattern for Fiber Trends Felted Clogs. I see some of these showing up under the tree this year, at least for Mayhem and Absent-Minded Professor, and maybe for a couple of big people who need warm tootsies. Shall I make them in favorite team colors? Eeeewww... that might mean knitting with scarlet and grey for some people!
The weather here finally feels like fall, my favorite season of the year. The nights have been crisp and cool, and the days have warmed slowly, with clear blue skies. Some leaves are already starting to change, and I look forward to getting out with my camera. Tomorrow the kids and I will attend a local event called Fossil Fest and we will dig through dirt from a local quarry for fossils. Fossil Park is usually where we go dig for fossils, and the same quarry will supply the material we'll be digging through. Being a science geek (aka nerd), Absent Minded Professor is really looking forward to the event! My other science geek, retired science teacher Buddy B, will be joining us.
Mayhem and Absent Minded Professor are also excited because we are planning to adopt two African Frogs from The Other Karen and her teenage twin girls. The frogs will go to live at Dad's once the kids know how to take care of them. Hopefully they won't croak.
