Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  It's November, Really?
Halloween came and went pretty uneventfully in the Violet/Kellen house. I made Harvest Soup, without the beef, using veggie stock instead of water and bullion, and it came out great. Then we spent the evening with friends. No complaints!

At the begining of the month, I made two Halloween-y FOs, though. One for my Secret Pal and one for me.
Punkin Dishcloth

Pattern: Punkin Dishcloth (ravelry link).
Needles: US 5, clover bamboos.
Yarn: Dishcloth cotton from Handmade Memories. I think it's Bernat?
Karla made this pattern last year and it was so cute I had to make one. Quick, easy pattern, although there are a few typos in the pattern. They're easy to make sense of if you really look at your knitting, though.

Other than that, I've been spinning.
Spinning Practice.
This is a bit of merino I spun up. I'm still getting used to my wheel (it's old and almost as cranky as I am) but we're starting to learn to work together. All my practice yarn (including what I spun on the spindle a few years ago) is slowly being knit into an "artsy" (aka crappily spun yarn) scarf. I think it might look cool when it's done...whenever that will be...

And then of course, there are xmas gifts. I'm hoping to have another FO this week...I'll keep you posted!
