Chocolate Overload

We survived Halloween last night. The evening started out slow and Beth was very pouty. The kids eventually came but not as many as we had hoped (or bought candy for). We were very generous and still have enough left to cover any chocolate cravings until Christmas.

There is a new book coming from Classic Elite called Warm Woolies with a pattern for Chateau. This is a great yarn. It knits on big needles but doesn't feel heavy. We have a cardigan, a poncho and cowls knit up in the store and customers are always commenting on how soft the yarn is.
Walker - you can purchase the individual pattern on Ravelry

Beth has more balls of Camelot and asked me to find a pattern. I suggested the Multi Directional Scarf (pattern free on Ravelry)
She says that it is her new 'favourite' pattern and when this one is finished she's going to knit another.

Now it's back to knitting time. You'd think that I could get a lot accomplished while watching football but you need to pay a bit of attention to the TV. Baseball, football and Homeland tonight. There goes any thoughts of an earlier night.
