October was an adventurous month for me! Traveled to Paris at the beginning of the month, and managed to churn out a good amount of knitting. Enough knitting that I was kind of a slacker about photographing all the finished projects, so those posts will be coming later.
I did manage to post about my Paper Moon socks, and in the process forgot to mention that I’m in love with the yarn used. It’s Socktopus Sokkusu Original and it’s definitely the newest addition to my top 5 yarns to knit socks. I fell so hard for it in the process of knitting this sock that I bought another skein while I was in Paris. Have you knit with Sokkusu yet?
I also hosted the Ghosts eBook for a spell. Teresa’s book exploring the cultural history and evolution of ghosts is such a great study into one aspect of the human mind, AND it has beautiful patterns! What more could you ask for? Tomorrow is the Day of the Dead—what better day to cast on your own Calavera Catrina.
Aaaand I posted about the perils of being an idiot and not making sure you have gauge on a pattern before you knit the whole thing. I still haven’t frogged my Folded. I really just can’t be bothered.
Tomorrow starts National Blog Post Month, in which I will endeavor to make a post every single day for the month of November. I’ve done this for the past two years, and I’m really excited about some of the posts that I have planned, as well as all of the fabulous guest posts I’ll be hosting from some of my favorite bloggers! Don’t forget—I’m hoping to do a Q&A post, where I answer your questions, whatever they might be! I have a handful of questions—thanks to those of you who already asked!—but I’d love more, too.
Adios, October! Bring it, November.
