Ladybug Time!

As you can see in the photo I have some ends to weave in and black dots to add but over all Dori's Halloween costume is almost done! With a week to spare no less.

Anyone want to lay down a wager those dots are going to be added around 1am the night before Halloween?

So taking pictures of peoples outfits anonymously via iPhone and ridiculing them on one's blog is catty and mean. I had to remind myself of that SEVERAL times today walking through Soho for work. It was like Ugly Betty Exploded all over Broadway. I may be wrong but I think 6" heels are a wee bit over kill while standing in line at the bank, no? All though this is coming from a woman whose new fashion objective is to not leave the house with any visible spit up/milk stains.

This also comes from a woman who is not so secretly living out her Punky Brewster fantasies on her child

And who also might put her child in all things holiday related until the child can verbally beg her not to

But thankfully that day is far far away

Meet Sydney the Stash-Busting Snake

I've had the idea for Sydney for awhile, but it took a bit to work out the details to make him coil on his own (funny what lack of sleep will do to your knitting skills). basically he's just a three row repeat with short rows, switching up the colors as you choose. pretty simple, and a great way to practice wrap and turn short rows if you're just learning.

And best of all he's Free!(pattern link)

The sample is knit in Lamb's Pride Bulky (by the lovely Kusi Coya), but anything would do. Just make sure all the scraps are roughly the same weight, or switch up your needle size accordingly so the fabric stays tight, and you will have one interesting looking snake :)
