Happy Halloween from 60's Girl and Annoying Man!
(He decided to be annoying man after a guy at the gym was working out next to him while talking on his cell phone the entire time. He's sporting 3 cell phones, one with an ear piece, a retractable ID badge, a water bottle clip belt with a travel coffee mug, a leatherman and wearing his biking clothes - which for some reason people wear around here in Seattle - and his biking shoes. For safety's sake, he removed the clips). And he wouldn't dance with me because of all of the gadgets. Very annoying.

- I ride the bus to work every day
- I recycle at home
- I've started to wash all of my clothes in cold water
- I do all my laundry at once to save on energy from the dryer stopping and starting throughout the week (actually, I've always done that but it was because I just wanted to be done with the laundry at once and not drag it out all freakin' week.)
But there is still lots of room for improvements - to be honest, I'm sitting in my home with all the heaters in each room running because I'm tired of being cold all the time! And yes, I'm wearing layers! It's just day one of the challenge I guess - long way to go!

Yesterday was the perfect fall day to head out to the pumpkin patch at Biringer Farm! It was sunny, cool and the company was fabulous! We all picked out perfect pumpkins.
Matt and Rebecca were quite happy with all the pretty colors we selected.
Carrie was sporting her new Irish Hiking Scarf made from the Magic Yarn Balls Rebecca and I put together for her out of Cascade 220. It was some magic, because not only did the scarf turn out beautifully, but she and Kevin also got engaged!

(Editors Note: This post was written Thursday night for posting first thing Friday morning. After I wrote in, Rebecca began sending taunting text messages and pic via the cell phone. Is there no extent to her torture?)

I've finished the Baby Bolero from One Skein. It turned out pretty cute if I do say so. I'm still not thrilled with the design on the back, but I think it'll look pretty cute on baby Cameron Lee.
I also found out today that one of the babies on my Baby Knit List is going to be a boy! I'm very excited to knit for a boy as all the baby knitting has been for girls! This will require a trip to the yarn store!
Until then, I'm still working on the Purl scarf for me from Last Minute Knitted Gifts! I just love the berry colors!

Editors note: I came up with the plan to start knitting holiday gifts on Aug. 1 while frantically finishing a scarf for last Christmas at 12:30 a.m. Christmas morning. I seem to be heading down that path again.

This is the reason I need to knit guage swatches: Here is the Irish Hiking Scarf Rebecca and I are both working on in the same yarn. She is on gauge, I am not.
P.S. Rebecca's coworker saw the entire thing and said the man didn't stab her, it was only a paper cut.
