Winter is coming...

The snow is sneaking down the mountains. The yard is frozen when we get up (and for a good portion of the day). I am actually wearing a coat to go outside. I had to scrape my windows yesterday (and my new 4-runner has far more windows than my old little truck!).Winter is on its way. I'm quickly realizing that I don't have appropriate clothing for Sawyer yet... he has a snow suit (which he has almost already grown out of....) and a lot of light weight coats, but no heavy winter jacket to wear when we run errands or go for short trips where wearing his snow suit would be silly. So, hopefully I will be able to find something at Kid 2 Kid this weekend that will fill that gap in his wardrobe.  He also needs mittens.... have to keep those baby hands warm!

I'm also in the process of knitting a hat for a friend. He asked me to knit him a simple alpaca hat, so I did the math the other night and I'm ready to cast on.  It should be a quick knit...

I started the first of three bears for Sawyer, but I'm not happy with it. I think I might try and go down one more needle size and see if that looks better. I also messed up the pattern (thanks to trying to knit in the car with an upset baby) so I have to start over anyway. Blah. Not sure if I'm going to get all three done by Christmas, but that is the goal.... (in case I didn't mention it, I'm knitting the three AK bears, a big white one, medium brown one, and small black one)

Other than that, I've just been sewing and getting things ready for a craft fair I'm vending at next month. I will post some pictures of what I plan to sell as the day gets closer. I am hoping to come up with some fun things... I have lots of ideas brewing! Of course, it is on the 12th of November, so it is coming up quick! I have quite a few things already ready, that just need tags, but I still want to get a lot done. Now, with Sawyer's party out of the way, I'm focusing all of my energy on that.

No big plans for the weekend. Weston is heading up to the cabin tonight, so it will just be Sawyer and I. We are planning on going to the Fall Carnival at the rec center on Saturday... hopefully Weston will be home in time to go with us. If not, I'm sure we will run into friends from Toddle Time, which will be fun! Between that and preparing for the craft fair, we will stay busy!

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend and stays warm!

I'm having a tough time finding Sylvester shoes for this winter. He doesn't seem to want to keep anything but socks on his feet. And he even pulls those off if he can!

I can't wait to see what you made for the fair, that sounds like a lot of fun.
