I knit basic ribbed socks and did my first ever Fish Lips Kiss heel. I've had this heel pattern for a long time, but have always been too intimidated to try it. Now that I have successfully knit it, I can't see myself knitting any other type of heel again. This pair of socks fit so perfectly!

Now that I have been working on it all week, I am really in the Halloween mood. I have been burning pumpkin candles, watching The Witches of East End on Netflix. Tonight I plan to relax, make some chili and watch scary movies all night long.
With unpacking, cleaning, shopping and organizing I have had very little time to work on my crafts. I did manage to get my August square done on my sampler, but I have yet to take any photos of it. After I did all that stitching I want to work on another stitching project. Just have to figure out which box those are still in..... Hopefully we can get my shelves for my craft room built this week and I can start to unpack it all.
I do have one EPIC FO to share, if I do say so myself. Thanks to Jess I was able to block my Dr. Who scarf after I finished knitting it up. Then I just had to trim ALL THE ENDS that I had previously woven in, add the 24 tassles and I was done!
Here it is hanging off the banister at my new house:
Another Christmas present off the needles!
I have one more braid that I finished during Tour de Fleece that never got shared as well. This is Into the Whirled 100% Merino in "Smaller on the Outside." I did another 3 ply (it is getting easier) and ended up with 200 yards of usable squishy yarn.
