Hi everyone! Happy November (what?!?). Sorry I haven’t been on much commenting on people’s blogs lately – I’ve been a bit stressed about work and *gestures to the state of the world* all this so just have been taking solace in lots of knitting and rewatching old TV shows, operas, and listening to books and Great Courses lectures I’ve listened to over and over again.
Anyway, it’s Sunday so this is a year of projects (Ravelry) post, but since it’s also the first of the month, I’m making it a monthly wrap up post too.

I didn’t bother taking a full photo of the WIPS since nothing except the three above looks any different. I did A TON of knitting in October (more than 86 thousand stitches, yes I count them all) but there were all in the big projects of the sweater and the MKAL shawl, plus two smaller projects. I do think over the Christmas/ New Years week I’m going to take a long hard look at WIPs and probably frog some. But I’ve got a several days off before then so we’ll see how much of a dent I can make
By the way, here’s some photos of the cute little knit pumpkin (rav link) I made for the pumpkin “carving” contest at work. This was a fun little two day project! I added the “carving” with some embroidering and I’m actually very please with how it turned out!!
I also finished my little love note! I ended up making the one year old size, which I think will be good for the baby who is due in late January. This pattern was just as fun to make in a baby size as it was in me size 🙂
To finish off, here’s a few photos of non-knitting things happening in the past few weeks!
Hope you’re all doing well! What are you working on this week?
