I went to another virtual crop last weekend and all the challenges are due Nov. 30. So here I am making Christmas layuot kits and two December Daily kits (to be given as gifts).

I have also been chugging away at my MKAL although I know how it looks finished now even though I am not done, but I did get a few surprise sections so I am happy about that. The rows are now over 900 stitches long, and it is a good day when I get more than one done. Really it's a good day when I get 1 done : D. I am on row 3 of 24 in this last section and then there is the bindoff. So I might have this done in a little less than a month (fingers crossed).

There is a lot going on here, which is typical. some things from the crop last month yet to be put away, embellishments to be made. The booties to be finished are just out of view.

And proof of a scrapbooking miracle : D. The Gary Larson cartoon was the basis of my daughter's first Halloween costume. She was the miracle and I was the butterfly from the wrong side of the meadow. Sadly I did not get a picture of my wings. But the picture and the cartoon have been toted around for about 25 years, but like Superman and Clark Kent, never together. I finally got them both together so there will be a page : D.

I have been making layouts!!!! It's been 2 years and some months since my last one was completed. I went a virtual crop in the beginning of the month at Victoria Marie Designs Mighty Network (free to join and 8 dollar for the crop).

I have also been knitting alot as October is Mystery Knitalong Season (you get clues every week and knit them up not knowing what the shawl will look like. This is the back of it as I don't want to accidentally give away spoilers : o.

So one of my pages is about the MKAL, and how I bought a kit for the first time : D. I used the yarn bands (labels) and the yarn used to tie the skeins for embellishments. I also used some of my Crackling Campfire Distress Glaze to color a little piece of wood (in the right corner), and Crackling Campfire to change the color of the letters to orange. Also if you knit, LolaBean Yarn is amazing! I can't afford to buy it regularly, but totally a wonderful splurge now and then. It sells out very quickly. I had to buy mine from Amsterdam : D.

Also a new stamp set : |, because 2020.
