Got needles?

We went to Parents' Weekend at Ben's college over the weekend. It was great fun to see Ben and meet some of his friends and their parents. The swim meet was awesome! On Saturday, the two top breaststrokers were out with sickness and a muscle pull sooo the two Freshmen stepped up to the plate for the 200 Breaststroke taking 1st and 2nd. Ben's first place was also a top 25 time! Yea!!! The team won the meet. On casino night, Ben won a case of M&M cookies and a case of Austin crackers and cookies. Jim won a case of microwave popcorn and a Sex and the City DVD. When he went up to claim his prize there were lots of hoots and hollers! It was a very fun weekend!
An hour into the trip, I noticed that I forgot my DPNs for the pumpkins and an extra ball of
yarn for St. Brigid! Augh! I solved the DPN challenge with some pencils we got at a Wal-Mart, later I got some at a Michael's. I found a LYS in town, which is nice. I looked around, but resisted the temptation to buy anything. I finished the large pumpkin and two small ones. I felted all three last night, but have to felt them down a bit more today. I'm about 10 rows away from shaping the neckline of St. Brigid. I'll be glad to start the sleeves! It was cold (we ran into snow on the way home) and it would have been nice to wear my sweater! It's nice to be able to wear sweaters, now. I love this time of year.

Congrats to Ben! Sounds like you had a fun weekend. We are bad parents and ditched parent weekend, but will see our collegiate this Friday at home.

Pencils! That is desperation knitting. Are you going to have pumpkins by Halloween or Thanksgiving? I'm anxious to see what they will look like. (Ah, probably like pumpkins.)
