My first Conwy is done, and other stuff...
It turned out quite nice! I may have to make a pair for myself one of these days. I can make about one sock per week, so according to my hubby's quick mathematical calculations, I can make 22 pairs per year if I knit nothing but socks. That's a lot of socks!
I didn't get yesterday's post written because I was busy cleaning and decorating. I just realized that we have about two dozen people coming over next Sunday for our Halloween party so I really need to get the place presentable! Plus I bought a ton of decorations. They look pretty good. I'm going to put these all as small pictures since I have a gazillion. If you want a better view, you'll just have to move your lazy little mouse hand and click on them.
Here are some Chez Knittin' Mom Halloween Decor pics:
Okay, this last one was done by our resident gigantic garden spider. It's amazing how this web spans pretty much the entire width of our front yard. And it's so pretty when covered in morning dew.
On Saturday, Bill and his friend Nate ran a 15k race. It was at a local park which has great play structures, so the kids and I went out to play and watch them cross the finish line. Owen and his sister both really like the swings...
And here is a picture of the big winners with their participation ribbons.
This is where the picture would go if stupid Blogger would let me load it...
They ran a time of 1:17 which was under Bill's goal of 1:20, so they were happy. I think Bill was also pretty happy that he and Nate finished together. Nate used to run marathons and his fastest time was just over 3 hours (which is pretty darn fast). He hasn't been running for awhile, and Bill has been running pretty regularly for about five months now, so they're finally about at the same fitness level.
I have a few more pictures, but it's time to go pick up The Girl from preschool so you'll just have to wait until tomorrow. Or Wednesday. Or next week. Or whenever I feel like spending an hour waiting for Blogger to decide if it wants to upload them or just give me a blank page and no picture. Remind me again why I don't use typepad?
