Out-of-town visitors from California kept us hopping.
The beginning of the month our older son made a quick appearance,
the end of the month brought younger son and d-i-l
our older daughter.
Not much planning of activities
- we all like to take what comes.
Our Capitol was highlight a couple of days.
A guided tour of our beautiful Capitol one day
and a private tour for some of us another day.
Lots of visits to favorite eating spots
- especially Central Dairy -
Boy, oh, boy, did we ever get our fill of dairy.
Extreme Moose Tracks and Bear Claw
seemed to be the flavors of choice.
Couldn't talk anyone into a Banana Split.

Now that everyone has returned to the West Coast
we have taken time to remove any and all of the Halloween decor.
By the way, how many Trick-or-Treaters rang your door bell????
Wanna guess how many we had
- here I am bragging again -
did ya take a stab at how many?
that's 9 little ghost or gobblins or rather Princesses, Super Heroes and, yes, even one member of some SWAT TEAM ! ! ! ! !
Cute, every one.
But what do we do with the rest of the candy???
Between the arrivals and departures of our kid's visits
there was time to knit.
Yeah, yeah, I know you're not one bit surprized.
Well, with the turn of the seasons and cooler to cold temps making it known every time we left the house,
I decided I needed a knit hat to keep my ears warm.
So I cast on using the Tree Frog colorway
and knit the ribbing that would hug my head and ears.
Then began the decrease portion.
By decreasing five times each round I created a wonderful swirl effect that I just love.
Keeps my ears warm and my head snuggled into this yummy Merino wool.
Have you ever attempted to photography yourself wearing a knit hat?
Well, it ain't easy!
Don't ask me how I know.
However, the number 23 does come to mind when I think about it.
Hubby came to my rescue
and got just the angle I wanted to show off my knit hat.
xxx to you, Hubby.

Gotta love her grin.
She's just too dang cute to put out of view,
don't ya think.
