This week was a doozy of week, Loves. Here’s what happened.

I went for a visit to my favorite salon. Dawn and Callie did a superb job given that I’m still growing my hair out from that time I shaved my head. They always do a wonderful job, but I am truly impressed with how they handle my in-between stages as we work towards a particular goal.
I started decorating the house in preparation for Halloween. I already had the wings stashed from costumes of yore. The witches hat was a steal from Target ($3). On Friday the lions finally received their names. The Fairy Lion which sits on the left side of the door has been named Dorthy. The witchy lion on the right side of the door has been dubbed Bricky. (I asked several times to make certain…and yes, this was the name.)
Friday also marked the ending of my Nanowrimo prep. I gathered all the materials I would be using to document the adventure that would start at midnight on Halloween night.
I spent a good portion of the week knitting and therefore finished a work-in-progress. This hat was originally a shawl that I made several months back. But I decided to re-purpose the yarn and see how it would turn out as a beanie hat. The colorway is amazing in this and I am in the process of making a pair of fingerless gloves to go with it. By the way, the yarn is a blend of silk and alpaca fibres. It’s squishy! Once the gloves are done the set will be available for purchase. Look for it in about a week to two weeks time.
Halloween! Matt carved a pumpkin for the first time in a very long time. I love the lopsided grin and crazy eyes.
I went to my very first Nanowrimo event – a kick off party to start the madness that is Nanowrimo. I met some very wonderful people and caught up with some that I hadn’t seen in several years. By the time we left I had managed to put down on paper 1669 words. And the day is still young yet!
