Halloween ’08

Posted in Holidays tagged , , at 2:42 pm by outdoorknitter

We had a nice Halloween.  It was fairly quiet and this was the first year EVER that we haven’t decorated in some fashion. 

Daughter brought Grandbabygiraffe by the shop for a surprise visit:

 We have now lived in Macclenny for 4 1/2 years and I’m still amazed at how Tricks or Treats are “done” out  here.  Most likely due to the fact that it’s a very rural area.

We live in a neighborhood and just past 6 PM, this begins to happen:

Cars, Trucks, Trucks hawling trailers… all hauling Trick or Treaters.  Some park inside the entrance of the neighborhood and get out and walk, others drive real slow as their child goes from house to house.  Needless to say, more than half the neighborhood turn their lights off and fake a “not at home”.   We choose to participate until the candy is gone, then do the same.

I thought it was a perfect time to work on a little knitting between treaters.  We started a shop KAL at The Local Needle for EZ’s Adult Surprise Jacket.  I chose Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky in Grey Heather. 

It kept me warm, laying over my lap, but wasn’t too long to cover up my boney feet.

This was how our cute little deranged giraffe looked most of the time…One hoof kept falling off and the hat would slide down where she couldn’t see.

This was one of the best costumes of the evening…my kind of mom!  Two brothers dressed up as pirates and this was their ride!

October has already come and gone.  Looking ahead tho, we have some major knitting months approaching, gotta love it.
