Each week Amanda [Running with Spoons] hosts Thinking Out Loud Thursday. A chance for us to do some brain-dump blogging. And to hang out with fun people.


Heeeeeey.  Did you know that next week is the last week of October?! Uhm.  Not cool, October! 

Actually, it is quite literally cool.  Or.  Cold.  This is at 10am today.  IMG_20141022_105101October has always flown by for me.  For 6 years I worked at a theme park that did a Halloween festival.  We called the weekends during the festival one really long day at work with short naps in between.  October flew by.  

Now, there really isn’t a reason for it to fly so quickly – but it is.  All of time is, really.  Is that just a part of growing up?! 🙂 

At least October means Fall clothes.  WHICH ARE MY FAVORITE.  IMG_20141017_081231Plaid+Flannel is perhaps the greatest combo ever.  Pair it with hand knit wool socks?!  YES!  Nothing makes me feel more productive than wearing a pair of hand knit socks.  I mean.  I could do nothing all day, but I have on hand knit socks, so I’ve accomplished something 😉 

Oh yeah.  Speaking of socks.  I finished the striped pair…IMG_20141020_200412And am actually wearing them as I type.  I will say they aren’t my tip top favorite – the yarn was a bit thicker than other yarns I’ve knit by the same brand / listed weight.  The stripes were also a bit wonky.  BUT they are still awesome, and will make GREAT super cold weather socks.  

I cast them off on Monday night…then I took some pictures of them…and then I sat down at my desk and started another pair.  I don’t know why I’ve become so obsessed with socks.  I think it’s because they’re so stinkin practical! And…I loved socks already.  IMG_20141021_212707It’s terribly difficult to see the colorway on these – but they’re some kind of rad fall colors and each row is a new stripe – which is fun.  I also think that – by TOTAL accident these have matched up to be identical twin socks 🙂 …So far, at least!

I have also been mainly engrossed in YouTube this month.  I’ve been trying to steer clear of having too many videos here – but I’ve been (with the help of my lovely friends) hosting VlogTober this year, and it has made for a constantly full Watch Later youTube list.  Luckily I found my cordless headset which makes watching videos while knitting a tangle-free dream 🙂 IMG_20141018_200953

Alright folks…I’m going to leave you now.  But not without sharing a sunrise picture 🙂 Capture

I hope you guys have a great weekend, and I’ll see you next week! 🙂 

P.S. –
