We've had another busy week here. Big Boy's hockey season is in full swing, and the little kids started a learn to skate program. Plus, my parent were here! There was a lot of sewing and running around to get Halloween costumes done. The kids are all set and are very excited for the weekend.
I made us a goat cheese and tomato tart one day for lunch:
It was SO GOOD! (And easy! You can find the recipe here).
My Dad and I went to see the movie "Red" with Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, and John Malkovich. If the cast alone doesn't make you want to go see it, it's a really fun action movie. I love going to the movies, and I don't treat myself to them nearly enough!
There was a little bit of knitting this week. I knit up a pair of slippers for Little Girl:
The pattern is from Fiber Trends. I used Patons Classic Wool and some fun fur I had in my stash. The slippers knit up really quickly, and I hope to make a pair for just about everyone in the house. I'm a little nervous about the fit. The first time I felted them and had Little Girl try them on, they were a bit big and slipped off her feet. I put them through the washer a second time, and now Little Girl says they're a little tight. I'm hoping they'll stretch with wear.
I've also knit a bit on my sister's-in-law sock, and started Little Boy's Christmas stocking last night at my knitting group. It looks like the Christmas knitting is on track.
