Or I’ll dress like this more often:

(for some of you, this may not be adequate incentive)

Anyhow, that was my Halloween costume, and the Chickengoddess got some excellent pictures as well. I feel this surpasses the awesomeness of last year’s pirate costume, both in quality and in creep factor. I submit, as well:

See? And also, others dressed up:DSC_3320 by you.

J.J. Doggle is not in costume, but he makes a good accessory. (Thanks to J.J.’s dad, David Naugle, for taking the awesome photos).

Anyway. After the party, which was the Party of All the Food in the Universe (And Then Some), we cleaned up and then I sat around the house doing nothing and decompressing, and then on Sunday the Chicken Goddess and I went to Knitch for knitting (as opposed to skiing or investment banking). We were not the only ones unloading leftover foodstuffs, as there was a veritable feast of chips and baked goods. I am still reeling from the effects of too much cake. As an additional treat, the lovely Claudia brought her equally lovely German mother, sister, and nephew, who shared our knitting table. Her nephew is one of the sweetest, most well-behaved kids I’ve run into in quite a while. Then I went home and worked on the Super Secret project some more (I’m officially halfway done!), and strung the beads onto the contrast color so that I can begin to knit the Nine Taylors socks (I know – I shouldn’t take on another project until I finish the ones I’ve got, but if you had this kit, you’d start it, too. I’m just sayin’).

Tonight I plan on working out with the rowing machine and knitting while I watch election coverage (VOTE if you have not already done so), but not rowing and knitting at the same time. That would be foolish.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
