It's FRIDAY!!!!

I finished this sock last night during the debate......Shibui yarn....SOOO soft!! The color reminds me of a caramel apple!!

I love this color and love this pattern....Hedgerow...not THE Hedgerow pattern but A Hedgerow pasttern....apparently there are TWO Hedgerow patterns in the world.

Also....Halloween Oreo's. (A favorite).

My sister and I have had long and convoluted round table discussions about the Halloween Oreo's. We have tested NUMEROUS packages of these cookies (STRICTLY for the sake of science)......these are just DIFFERENT than regular Oreo's or regular double stuffed Oreo's. We can't Q.U.I.T.E. put our finger on what it is that makes the Halloween version oh so much better than all the others.....but we have vowed to keep at the research until we come up with a conclusion.

Another favorite is THIS yarn!!

Mentone '08 sock yarn, commissioned by Wendy and created by Jessi.

I LUV this yarn!!! The colors remind me of Brach's Fall Mix!!!

I am still debating on what pattern to use....the Monkey pattern is whispering in my ear....but we'll have to see.

Last but not least, I leave you with a kitty pic (since I forgot to post Whiskers on Wednesday).

Bowl-O-Bella-Kitty.....with the ever jealous, watchful Heidi!!

Now that the cooler weather is starting to arrive, Bella is looking for any place she can find to curl up and stay warm. She is THE most cold natured cat I have ever seen!! Heidi on the other up with me first thing in the morning to rush onto the porch to enjoy the cool mornings......of course, she is like me and has ample insulation so the cold doesn't bother her as much!! LOL!!

Love the "bowl of kitty"!!!

Never tried Halloween Oreo's, but how tempting after seeing your pics!

Knit Witch said...

Too cute. Our kittens love to curl up in bowls too!

Holly said...

I knew all about the Weekend yarn, Jessi did. Hehehehe.... Love that I can keep a secret. We don't bring those Oreo's in my house because I will eat the whole thing.

My favorite Oreos are the mint ones. And the peanut butter ones come in second. I'll need to sample the halloween ones!

LOVE the bowl of Bella. I can't believe she squeezed in there!

Bubblesknits said...

Yeah, I had to tell somebody (other than the hubby) and when I found out Holly wasn't going...I caved. LOL

I love the bowl of Bella! heehee And I require to be a part of these testings you're doing with the Oreos. Especially when the chocolate dipped ones come out around Christmas. *drool*

ginger said...

Definitely going to have to check out those Oreos now!

Anita said...

Oh my, that Bowl of Kitty is just too funny! The look on her face is priceless! :)

That will make a very pretty pair of monkey socks.

Wht is it about cats that they can look comfortable anywhere?

The Yarn Nut said...

That is a great picture of Bella. I wish I could get good pictures of gutter cat.

I had my comment all worked out, but it took so long for the window to load, all I can think about are mellowcream pumpkins.

Suzanne B said...

The sock looks great!

And I can't believe you are tempting me with the Halloween Oreos. Believe it or not I've never had them.

I can't believe Jessi managed to keep the secret from us. She is much better than I am. LOL

And why is it that cats always have to fit themselves into something it just doesn't look like they should fit in???
