Skinny Empire

I finished knitting Skinny Empire from the Custom Knits book. It is a really simple knit.

I wish I had made it a size smaller but otherwise I think it turned out well.

Pumpkin Treats and Scarves

I made pumpkin cookies last night but man do I want to try this pumpkin dip recipe that Capricious posted about!

I've been trying to do the "healthy" thing lately and it has me thinking about unhealthy food all the time *sigh*.

In knitting news, I have been working on this lovely scarf. I am kind of bummed because I messed up one of the cables and it goes the wrong direction and it is making the perfectionist in me crazy. Makes me want to rip out the entire thing and start over but I know that isn't practical....

Can you spot the "bad" cable?

We had quite the Halloween this year. We started at the Wild Life Experience for Trick or Treat Off the Street.

Then we carved our pumpkins.

And we ended with Trick or Treating. Chase had a great time, the kid is OBSESSED with candy!
