I'm BAAAAAACK! (With lots and lots of pics)

Sorry I haven't updated in a month. I'd like to say I've been way too busy but the fact is that I'm simply lazy.
So, to recap what has happened to me in the past month:
I went home for October break, which was fun. Then I went to Rhinebeck, which was awesome! I love me some sheep!
Then I came back to Vassar, and this past weekend my friends from home came up and went to the Halloween dance. Sam wore her Slytherin vest that I knit her!

Doesn't it look so good? I was so proud of myself!

Also, I knit some CHERIE AMOUR!!!! I've been lazy and have procrastinated on knitting the sleeves (same with BFC). Here's some progress pics though:

The main body is done, so that's great. Sorry about the pink bra in the pics. I get lazy sometimes!

Then there's my Rainbow socks in some Regia 4 ply. I cast these on right before I left for October break, knit them on the train, knit them at Rhinebeck, knit them at the Ravelry party, then shamefully cast them aside for my other socks (I have some serious knitting ADD). Here's a progress shot though:

Also I started Eunny Jang's Entrelac Socks in some Cherry Tree Hill yarn I bought at Rhinebeck. They are gorgeous!!!!!

And finally, two FOs. These are Breeze socks in Patons Grace. Fresh off the needles (actually I finished them last night!) for Sockdown October on Ravelry:

And Tychus, for Sarah, in lime Simply Soft!

Next up: Scheherezade's Slippers for Sam (she's playing that role in Arabian Nights), Child's First Sock by Nancy Bush, and I'm sure tons more socks. I leave you with these lovely cookies that my friend Jess made and me in my Halloween costume!

Happy Halloween!

Yes, I finally caught Startitis off of Ravelry. Actually I only started one new item so far. It's the Fake Isle Hat from Magknits! My first normal Fair Isle project (meaning not intarsisle, which is my own weird mix of Fair Isle and intarsia):

Please ignore my weird faces. It was late at night.

I finished the body of my BFC. You can't tell because I should have had someone take a pic of it instead of trying to do it myself. Here are some cable shots though!

I've had quite a few tests this week (I had two today, hopefully I did well on both), so I've been knitting to take my mind off of the stress. One more tomorrow (Linear Algebra...ahhh!) and a paper due Thursday. And then I'm free (ok I still have work, but I have October break in two weeks, so I will actually be free!). I'd like to finish my BFC and Cherie Amour (casting on as soon as BFC is finished) finished by the time I get home. Also I need to get some buttons for the BFC at home, but that shouldn't be a problem. Depending on the weather I will most likely wear one of the sweaters to Rhinebeck!!!! Should be exciting, since I've never been there before.

Anyway, I have class in half an hour so I better go grab a frozen yogurt or something =)
Love, A.Co
