Getting All Set
On Sunday we headed out to Butterprint Farms to pick out our pumpkins. The sun was warm and it helped because of the strong wind gusts. It's a great place to take the kids. You have to pay and entrance fee, but with the hay ride, corn maze, goats to pet and banjo music it's a blast. The kids love the flavored honey sticks, which you can see Eric had hanging out of his mouth. They have hives on the property and sell their own honey which is fabulous.
Monday night was carving time and when we lifted Eric's top off his pumpkin, a wet sickly sound was heard. The smell drifted and I just about tossed my cookies. rotten. He was disappointed and Mac shed some tears over his loss. He carried that 23 lb prize from the patch back to the cashier which was no easy feat. Another pumpkin has been purchased and round 2 of carving will happen any night now.
As for knitting, I've started the September club package for the Rockin Sock Club. Cloning Anemone Rib is coming along fine. The colorway is definitely fighting with the pattern... but I'll see how far I want to take this.
