Two weeks ago???

With the weather today, I find it hard to remember how nice it was two weeks ago. It was a beautiful weekend. We went for a last boat ride on Lake DeNeveau.

October will soon be over. This will be a god send. I am not exaggerating when I say I had AT LEAST 3 after school meetings per week this month. Oi! Then a big birthday - Ian turned 8. and blah, blah, blah.....

I am grateful for the long weekend. Ah...nothing to do but knit, watch the kids, go for walks (if the weather is ok).

As for Sockoberfest....I've not gotten very far. I have one more square finished and another on the needles, but it will be a miracle if I get 5 or 6 more done. I'll just keep plugging away and those squares will get done.

Every year I say I am going to participate in Socktoberfest. My goal is to finish the pairs of socks that I have started. This year I have a fighting chance. I only have 2 pairs started. But here is the problem, I still have 7 blocks of my barn raising afghan to go. I'm thinking that I am going to count those squares as socks BECAUSE they are after all made out of sock yarn. See my fuzzy logic??

Wish me luck. I really want to get these squares done - I'll keep you posted on my progress.
