Although we still have a little baggie of those vampire teeth ice cubes in the fridge and our glow in the dark zombie flamingos are hanging out in the garden, October's over.


Both Rhinebeck and Halloween have been successfully put to bed - but not completely, until I put the official pics up so the family members and faraway friends of mine who lurk here can see what the gals were this year. (Hi, Alene or Cassie or Steph!)

Zoe, above, was a sorcerer.

And Maya is still in her zombie phase.

Both had a blast, and now I'm trying to ignore the chocolate. Luckily, my office is in the attic, and the bags are down in the kitchen, so any trips from the third floor to the first require actual effort.

Effort better spent on this, yes?


A little preview of the progress so far on the capelet. I still have a little ways to go on this guy, but he's chugging along now that I've chosen an actual direction and stuck with it. Amazing how that happens, right? This will be some kind of cranberry drink, and I think it'll be timed right between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

A Hanukkah cocktail anyone?

I love that shade of red. It is one of my favorites. Once this is out, I might actually need to make it in the called for yarn and model color!

My kids have the same socerer costume! They both look great. I hope they had fun. I love that shade of red, too. And anything cabley.

Gorgeous color! Reminds me of my Mom's Cranberry Rum Punch... a holiday staple in our house!
