😱 Max is doing all the scaring this year for Halloween. πŸ™πŸ’žPlease send good thoughts, prayers, cat love, and wishes for good health, as Max is once again not eating, and is down 4lbs 😞 He got more fluids at the Vet and is perking up a little, but still needs to eat. I am worried sick about my sweet Max cat. #MaxLOVE #lovemycats #myknittingbuddy #HalloweenScare http://ift.tt/2f6y76Z

Happy #Caturday ! This guy gave us a scare earlier this week by refusing to eat and drink. 😞 Many lab tests and x-rays later, he is doing much better after being treated for pancreatitis. πŸ’ž #MaxLOVE #lovemycats #myknittingbuddy #JustDuetShawl #ravelry http://ift.tt/2e8xWZu

Another day brightener, quite literally! These bright colors and casting-on a shawl always puts a smile on my face! πŸ˜πŸ’ž This awesome Pippi bag, and @twosistersyarnco Pippi's Freckles colorway are from @annielightknits as part of her fabulous Pippi kits. I swapped in the @leadingmenfiberarts Punk Rock Highlights colorway over their more subtle green for a #PopPop! #kapowColor #loveSpeckles #ravelry #JustDuetShawl http://ift.tt/2fkMuaf

Today I have been enjoying both the gorgeous colors on my knitting needles and out my living room window. This gorgeous colorway was inspired by the colors of Rhinebeck Twilight, dyed by @emilyquilts and gifted to me by Carla! #somuchtolove #socktober2016 #ilovecolor #handknitsocks #ravelry http://ift.tt/2dzRRC6

I just noticed that when the weather turns colder, around the time I am traveling to New York, I often have #SkewSocks on my knitting needles. This pair was started and finished on my trip to #Rhinebeck2016. I wonder what it is about this time of year that makes me want to knit these socks?Do you have ritual seasonal knit like me?

This is my #rhinebeck2016 haul on the wonderful wood floors of our rental house in Saugherties. It may appear small (in quantity) but it is mighty! πŸ’ͺ I got my gorgeous green #yarnBaby as well as the springiest cormo from @jillmakesstuff. I also scored another #Jawaja leather purse (2 makes it a collection right? πŸ˜‰) I couldn't resist the @dragonflyfibers Starry Night gradient DK set for colorwork, @intothewhirled sock yarn for Ellie and I, and @katrinkles_knitting_jewelry wooden mitten and sweater ornament kits. #yarnSwoon http://ift.tt/2ejZk6t

Cabs, subways, fountains, and exploring NYC with Uncle Matt was the trip of a lifetime for Ellie and I! Thanks for all the memories NYC and Matt! #ilovenyc #makingMemories #mybrotheristhebesthost http://ift.tt/2e352us

Our NYC adventures also included seeing a musical, and CATS was the purrrfect first Broadway experience for Ellie! 😻😻😻 She was in awe of all the singing and dancing, and is now trying to memorize all the songs and replicate the choreography.

As always, NYC was so.much.fun with my brother Matt as a fabulous host! Our first night we went to #MadamTussauds and ran into @jimmyfallon and #slimer. We also got wax molds made of our hands, which was crafty and fun, and I highly recommend! http://ift.tt/2e4WNAp

I certainly would never wish away Summer, but I love when the crisp Fall days allow me to combine my favorite hobbies of running and knitting (wearing knitwear). Every year I love when I need to get out these mitts knit for me by a dear friend from her handspun. #knittersarethebestpeople #justRunKnit #knitstagram #knittingTheGiftThatKeepsGiving #fallyall πŸπŸ‚ http://ift.tt/2dT2MoI

My Rhinebeck sweater is TA-done! I love it and am ever so happy I decided to cast it on last minute! A couple of very late nights combined with worsted weight yarn on US8s and short sleeves made for a quick knit! Pattern is #lettlopivest with some extra colorwork at the bottom band. Yarn is @fancytigercrafts Heirloom base (American Romney) #rhinebecksweater #lastminuteknits #ravelry #Rhinebeck2016 http://ift.tt/2dMcWGw

I could no longer resist the sweater siren song of my yarn screaming RHINEBECK SWEATER at me! Less than a week before I leave for NY seems like a perfectly rational time to cast-on!

I couldn't be more pleased with how my experimental #skewSocks and #rosecityrollers smash-up turned out! I am obviously biased #badumtss and Ellie loves her new socks too. Yarn: #FiberAddiction BFL nylon in the Glo Bowl colorway Pattern: modified for less stitches Skew socks toe and foot, then I unbiased as per the leg instructions, threw in a #spaciousOMGheel, and bound off 10 rounds after the heel. http://ift.tt/2dI3KXr

Every month I love the fabulous display @leadingmenfiberarts puts out of how different bases take dye with their colorway of the month. It's #yarnScience YO! Also, I just love looking at pretty yarn! Also, this month is inspired by Stranger Things - The Upside Down!!! Which base do you like best?

On @jknitma's recommendation, the boys and I walked to @teavana and got their seasonal Pumpkin Spice Creme Brulee tea. While I was buying a tin, they were sneaking more samples. We all loved it... 6 thumbs up πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ #loveTea #lovemyfamily http://ift.tt/2dnY038

My pink and blue colorwork cowl didn't have quite enough POP, so I went with the tried and true #Grellow (grey-yellow) combo. With huge cakes like these, my infinity cowl might just go on for infinity! πŸ˜πŸ˜› #notReally Infinite Twist yellow gradient and dovecote grey. #ilovecolorwork #ravelry #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #KnitCahoots http://ift.tt/2d3RGuE
