This stuff. Wow. It's reeeeaaaally bad. And you know, I had a feeling in the store. Almost put it back. It did have that trashy vibe about it - but you know, I was buying for a little Halloween get together this afternoon and it's Pumpkin, for chrissake, so I caved.

Then I realized my mistake. Hmmm. A friend came over yesterday afternoon to raid the liquor cabinet for a palatable option. No luck. It's pumkin syrup. And even scarier is the fact that I dropped $12 on it. So, instead I think I'll be making this instead later on today. It's still orange :-) and goes with chili.


Also Halloween related -- at the last mintue, we realized Maya's Wednesday Adams costume didn't FIT. (crapcrapcrapcrap - there's hours wasted) We put together a new costume - she's a vampire now. She's still all covered up. (phew) And Zoe? She's Maya's pet black cat. Me? I'm a witch. As always.


But, beside Halloween preparations, there's also been knitting in the past couple days. Here's Fireside in her current state. ( Oh, #10 needles, why don't I use you more??)


Since it is Halloween, I leave you with popcorn candy corn hands in the cubbies at school. mwah ha ha

I saw that Pumpkin Liqueur in the aisle of the my local liquor store and thought better of it. Glad you confirmed my decision.

Fireside looks lovely.
Happy Halloween!

The other day, they had pumpkin soda at Whole Foods... yuck! It was surprisingly nasty. So... I can imagine that pumpkin liqueur is nasty too.

I may have something more horrible than pumpkin liqueur, it's creme de violette, and I bought it to make lovely violet martinis for a shower (I got the idea from someone on Ravelry, maybe you? ;) The stuff is horrible, way worse than cough syrup. I should stick to knitting and chardonnay.

Hehe! I'm knitting some Selbuvotter on US10s, so I know just what you mean about 10s. Think my next project should be worsted weight or thicker!

Thea said...

Oh, shoot. As a lover of all things pumpkin spice, I had high hopes for that stuff. Syrup you say? Ick.

Fireside is looking great!

Your Fireside looks great! I'm doing one, too, but it's been neglected for months now. Tsk. Looking forward to seeing yours done!
