Still plugging along on some of the same old projects over here. The reading is a little repetitive as well since the books I've posted today are the ones that we've been reading to Finn every day now that autumn is here. Pumpkin Moonshine is his favorite, but he'll take I Like Pumpkins (a cheap Scholastic book we bought when Elizabeth was 4 and still remains a favorite around here, go figure) and Woody, Hazel and Little Pip as often as we'll read those as well.
I'm still working on the socks, although I'm wading through the heel of the second sock so that's progress. I'm working on a scarf for a Christmas present as well. It's a pretty quick knit using this pattern, and I'm picking it up here and there when I have a few minutes.
The biggest amount of knitting lately has been on Finn's chain maille helmet. Remember the chain maille sweater I made him months ago? I'm just getting around to his helmet now that Halloween is bearing down. But it's finished, and he couldn't be cuter!
Wanting to do some seasonal crafting that did not involve knitting, I picked up this beeswax candle at the farmer's market the other day and decided to make an autumn tree candle using decorating wax.
Now the kids won't let me burn it! :)
I love the candle! I'm with the kids - don't burn it :) And the chain maille is awesome.ReplyDelete
Love the chain maille helmet. He's going to look cool on Halloween :)ReplyDelete
love the look of knitted chain maille! and that candle is gorgeous! I would burn it though - but just because I would like to see the tree all lit up!ReplyDelete
The chain mail looks great! I am amazed you decorated the candle and I would not burn it either. My kids are old but I saved so many of their favorite books for if and when grandbabies show up!!ReplyDelete
Ha! That "chain maille" helmet it great!ReplyDelete
What a cute little helmet (and model!)! My kids love to dress up, and I'm sure my boys would LOVE that.ReplyDelete
Your candle is amazing...I would have a hard time burning it, too!
Oh what a cute helmet! My son would love that and I really like your fall candle :)ReplyDelete
I have those two books as well...Always love Tasha. You are one talented MamaReplyDelete
What a pretty candle! I keep meaning to order Pumpkin Moonshine but keep forgetting about it. Thanks for the reminder. ;)ReplyDelete
How adorable, your knitting is so beautiful. What a darling photo of the helmet and your son. So cute. And the candle is so pretty too, but I would burn it (if the kids were okay). Using things, that's what makes the memories. It could be lit for special meals or times.ReplyDelete
This is great! My boys would both love this. With the pattern, did you have to change it a lot for the size?ReplyDelete
