|Notice I remembered to bring knitting with me too|
|Didn't try one, but maybe I should have....|
|Much harder than it looks. I ended up with two candles, one I like more than the other, but still a fun activity!|
|It's all about the bass, about the bass.....|
|I really wish you could see how pretty this is turning out|

I started spinning up the alpaca batt that I got at the alpaca fest a few weeks ago. I have been remembering to add more twist to the ply and it still has a nice fluffy halo. It is going to be so soft and squishy when I finish. This is the first ply all finished
I have also started my next stitching project. This is another one from the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. It is the 12 days of Christmas. Maybe I will finish it in time this year!!
I've also been busy the past few weeks. As Jen mentioned, we went to the Renaissance Faire with a new group of friends. I had so much fun and I hope to go again next year!

Two weekends ago I went apple picking with my mom after church. We went to Grim's Orchard. We picked about 13 pounds of jonagold apples and I picked a couple of a darker type of apple (I forget the name). The orchard is really cute. They have a corn maze, hayrides and a play area for kids. They also sell apple cider donuts and apple cider slushies. (SO GOOD!!!) When I came home, I found a bag of cider donuts from Jen hanging on my door. <3 I was going to freeze some, but I ended up devouring them instead. With the apples I picked, so far I baked a diabetic friendly apple crisp and want to make some battered apple rings and a pie.

Jen and I are both knitting with our Miss Babs MDSW exclusive yarn. I am knitting a pair of Jaywalkers. The pattern is crazy easy, I am just hoping they aren't too snug. I decided to do an afterthought heel, mainly because I was at work and couldn't concentrate on the pattern heel.

I have also been working on some cross stitching. Since I already finished my Halloween Sampler, I felt that finishing my Gingerbread Lane was more crucial than finishing Halloween Town. I am almost done with the 2nd house. I decided that I am just doing the houses, not the scene underneath or the countdown. I am hoping to be done before Thanksgiving.
