I‘ve been working on these primarily during D&D games, or while waiting (in line for groceries, at the dentist/doctor’s, etc.) Eventually I’ll get around to blocking Herbivore (pattern by Stephen West can be found here) but it’s even wearable now…
Once I finished knitting herbivore, I returned to a fun yarn that I’ve had for a while. I thought it would suit a crosshatch stitch that I’d used in a previous pattern, but I made a number of modifications so that it became the following cowl:
Melissa had a pumpkin-carving party and I decided to carve a very small pumpkin for myself… Of a nazgul fighting a death star.

Kathryn Ann stopped by so I could help her with her makeup for her Halloween costume. It was a quick 20 minute job and a fun break.

I have a Tiefling Warlock that I play in a D&D campaign. In our plans to get together and game today, I agreed to bring the snacks, keeping in theme with my character, who deals a lot of flame-based damage. I’m hoping that my chili chocolate flaming cupcakes actually taste decent!

Good news: I don’t need a new set of winter tires this year. Whew. In the mean time, I’m enjoying the relatively warm weather that we’ve been getting. I even saw a hint of a rainbow today…
See the hint of a rainbow?
Hunter requests my attention. Must go!
John arrived in Saint John on Saturday with this lovely bouquet in hand. Great call with the combo of snapdragons and exotic flowers! Thanks again – they are wonderful! (Added bonus: the cats have not pulled the vase over yet.)
We decided to go for a walk at the Irving Nature Park since the weather was still good. Then after our walk, John cooked a delicious Matsuman curry and we hung out and watched “The Nines”.
Sunday was a chance to return to our D&D campaign, even if we were missing one player. We spent the afternoon working through a big boss fight and resolved that portion of our quest …

Bit by bit, I’ve managed to get my old website ported over from HTML pages and a Blogger-based Journal to this new site. Thanks to the help and patience from my awesome server-gnome, things are starting to come together. I still have a lot to work on, and I need to squeeze it in sometime between work, sleep and working on a mural design.
Here are the items that still require attention:
- The Portfolio. I need to go into the template documentation and figure out how to get the images to actually show up.
- Theater section. I’d like to add links and photos and info on past productions.
- Old blog posts. This may take a while, as I’d like to go back and add images back in to old postings. I could also categorize things and add tags.
I‘ve decided to make the switch from Blogger to a new WordPress site. Please stay tuned, as it may take a little bit to get things ported over. The good news? I’ll have a portfolio again. Also, all of my knitting patterns will be available on one page!
Jay & Lisa & I decided to try out a new game that they’d gotten. It sure looked pretty, but there were a TON of rules and it was rather confusing. Of course, I didn’t give Jay enough time to pre-read all of the rules either.
After teaching a knitting class, I rushed out (in the dark) to harvest the remainder of my plants from my Community Garden plot before our first heavy frost set in. I managed to get the oregano, lavender, and rosemary with their roots and I’ve replanted them into a small planter in the kitchen. I hope they survive!
