Halloween 2014 preview

Image
This is the first year I made the costumes for my kids, guys! I did everyone's except for the little cowgirl coz she really wanted this from the Disney store...sigh....
Can you guess which characters they are?

Took them to a Halloween bash over the weekend. Didn't stay too long, as everyone was sniffing and hacking (including me)....



For my eldest's costume, we went to a thrift store and bought a plain jacket and pants. I hand-sewed the character badge on the jacket (badge from Etsy), and also hand-sewed the pants's accoutrements (materials from a fabric store).
I knitted the vest and gloves for my middle child's costume, and also knitted this hat for my costume. Can you guess who I'm gonna be? Heehee
Are you excited for Halloween?

As of late

Just wanna share some random shots taken lately. Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!
(Everyone is sick over here again...sigh....)

Prep work

We all have different ways to get ready for the change in season. For me, it's new shoes and new hair colour:D



It was looking blonde-ish in the previous posts because I had to let the old colours wash off and bleach my roots to make the new colours more vivid.
How do you get ready for the change in season?

Skullduggery

Love this top, but it might be too cold to wear it soon...sigh...It's perfect for Halloween though:D

Do you like skull prints?

Currently Loving #21

My new loves:D

1) Sherlock
Ohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh! Thank you, Netflix, for having Sherlock. I now understand the hype over Benedict Cumberbatch. Brilliant writing and excellent chemistry between the cast. I watched the three seasons straight, you guys! The Sign of Three episode (Season 3)....enough said.
The only downside is that Season 4 comes out 2016.....aaaaaah! (They only come out with one season every two years...sigh....)


2) Viajante shawl/poncho
This is the latest knitting project I finished, and I'm kinda obsessed with it. You can wear this thing so many different ways! I feel like I'm in a post-apocalyptic movie when I use this:D
If you knit, you can find more about the pattern here.



Let me know what you're loving lately:)

Leather weather

One awesome thing about fall: the leather jackets come out:)






It's Thanksgiving Day on Monday here in Canada, guys! Wishing all my Canuck friends an awesome holiday.

Obsession #33

I am so in love with these Coach boots, you guys!

What are you coveting lately?

Back to back

Image
I usually wear my pants a couple of days in a row, coz that's just how I roll....



 Yeah...she's still in a cast...sigh....


On a side note, guys, I finished the assignments for the Level 1 of the Master Hand Knitter programme, and mailed my binder to Ohio on Friday..yay! Learned so much from it, and am really quite happy to be embarking on this journey:) Now, the waiting for the review begins....

Just a plain all-black outfit, but lookie....printed scarf!

Anyhoo, just wanna let you guys know that my posting may be a bit sporadic for awhile (but I'll still be reading and commenting on my fave blogs. You guys keep me sane:D). My eldest is due for a major surgery the first week of November (for his cleft lip and palate), so fingers crossed that by the end of the year, everything will settle down a bit. On that note, I'd like to share this post by a dear blogger friend, Rooth. Let me tell you...I wish I know in real life the people I've gotten to know through blogging.

 and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.


P.S. Just wanna take this opportunity to say thank you as well to Powder Blue with Polka Dots for the mention:)
