October’s Crafts

October is always the busiest month around our house. I do try to sneak in a crafting project here and there to keep my hands busy and my mind focused.

I cast on and knitted a Ravenclaw scarf for Agnes.

I started knitting a Gryffindor scarf for Dylan too.

I made a few more teacher gift scarves that are ready to go for Christmas.

I even got out the sewing machine to tackle a big pile of mending.

My craft space is always this messy.

I take along some knitting to do while I’m waiting for the kids to get out of school.

I also started a new crochet project for the holidays.

I’m still working on Dylan’s (and Agnes’) blankets that I had hoped to finish before Autumn.

Seriously, so messy… I’ve got to get the craft nook in a bit of order before Thanksgiving.

I decided to binge out on some netflix, and cast on another Ravenclaw scarf for Agnes.

I did finish crocheting another scrappy blanket for downstairs, just in time too the temperature has really started to drop in Kansas.

The scrappy blanket is extra warm and cozy.

I also finished up knitting Dylan’s Gryffindor scarf, and I had a bunch of yarn ends to weave in.

Now that we are well into November, my mind is busy with Thanksgiving preparation. There is much to do around the house, and even more that needs to be made in the kitchen. The craft table is going to have to be lonely for a bit, so I can get some housework done.
