I can't believe it's November already.  Time sure is flying.  Got a few pairs of socks to show.  First ones are a Christmas gift for BFF.  They are just a 2x2 ribbed sock knit on 2.5mm needles, started October 1, finished the 15th.  The yarn is Mary Maxim Foot Prints Sock Yarn in the reef colorway.  Details here.

The second pair are plain old vanilla socks also knit on 2.5mm needles, started October 16, finished the 22nd.  The yarn is Mary Maxim Twinkle Toes in candy cane.  Not the easiest to see in the picture, but the yarn has a gold metallic thread in it to give it a sparkly look.  Details here.

The third pair is identical to the above pair, started on October 22, finished on the 31st, this colorway is called sugar plum. Details here.

The boys went trick or treating the other night with a couple of their friends.  It is the first time that I haven't gone with them.  I was very surprised that I only ended up with a total of 32 kids.  That's the lowest I've ever had since we moved to this house in August 2001.  We usually have at least 50.  I had chips and cheesies and a treat bag with a couple of types of candy and a chocolate bar.  At my old house I couldn't afford to give out much of anything except for Rocket candy, gum, and suckers.  I used to get over 200 kids there!

Someone got too pooped out with all the walking and fell asleep on the sofa.
Happy knitting!
