Sunday Schmoozing

Which, if you think about it, is a far better title than, say, Friday Flatulence.

I have updated the hat info and it's over here for those who are interested, as I know not everyone who visits is desperately interested in what the fashionable homeless of Vancouver will be wearing on their noggins this winter.

Anyhow, today I took four children out to the Laity Pumpkin Patch. Despite the obvious brain malfunction I was having when I decided that taking four small girls anywhere on my own, we had a great time and we all got good (cheap!) pumpkins. If you're in the area and you have transportation, it's well worth a visit.

I don't have a lot today, due to the exhaustion of the four kids thing and such, but I did want to bring your attention to this post by Mandy. She's got a link to a great article over at Dress a Day. Now I'm not much for the dresses (ok, yes, in the summer but October to April see me pretty much swaddled) but it's definitely well-written and provides food for thought.

And as an aside, I must mention how much I really really hate having purchased a needle gauge sizer thingie made by Susan Bates, only to find that there's no hole for 7mm or 7.5mm needles, seeing that's what I happen to need for the next project on the list.

Thanks, Sue. Remind me to do you a favour one day.

In the meantime I'll just be over here with my glasses on, trying to read the itty-bitty numbers stamped on the sides of my needles.


is an asswombat related to an assroo?

and you forget, susan bates is u.s. based, right? and isn't 7 or 7.5 mm a canadian sized needle? just saying.

i don't wanna think about pumpkins. i need to buy 2 more, and i'm broke. bleh
Pumpkins, then Christmas trees. I'm interested! I have almost 3 hats made! That's quite a feat for me.
I'm avoiding the pumpkins as long as possible, but two hats will be on their way to you this week sometime.
psst....E R I S! BWAHAHAHA!
Laity Pumpkin Patch?

Next year I think you should take the kids to the Clergy Pumpkin Patch. Just don't let them wander into the corn maze unattended.
Thanks for the links to the "pretty" stuff. It's great, even though the introspection is making my head hurt.
Can't wait to see how many hits you get on Friday Flatulence.
That will teach you a lesson: don't buy American (needle gauges).
I think we drove by that pumpkin patch on Sunday - maybe you were there! We were heading back to Whistler from a weekend with SIL and family in Ladner.
