Happy Halloween! I'm looking forward to handing out lots of candy this evening and also to exasperating six-year-olds with my (not on purpose) bad costume guesses.
Oddly enough, I got these duckies at a Reformation Day supper (= at church, y'know, Ein' feste burg ist unser Gott, etc). They're supposed to glow in the dark. They don't. I checked.
In honor of the season, I started a Glampyre pattern, Bold and Bulky Mini Cardi (in Fitted Knits and also free online) in Malabrigo Aquarella, colorway 02 Soriano. I made pretty good progress – all that's left to knit is the right sleeve and the sleeve, neck, and button bands.
Stefanie Japel's design is brilliant, the pattern is meticulously well-written, the photoset is great, I got gauge exactly, I love the shaping, and the sweater fits perfectly. But... the rakish silhouette makes me feel like an M.C. Hammer action figure, so I'm going to frog it. EEK!
ETA: Please send some knitterly love to Shonda, who lost her husband last night in an auto accident (not the one in her October 9 post and not what I had in mind when I titled this post).
