Fall Friday

Well, its official in Belgium. Fall is here! While it is sunny today, it is colder than cold - I could see my breathe this morning as I walked to the Police Station to sort out my residency. Belgium Bureaucracy is beyond belief - I've been working on getting this sorted since MARCH!! Talk about delays! Even today after meeting with the Police they said I would here from the Commune in 2-3 weeks...At this rate I'll be gone for Christmas and 2007 will be here before I get my new residence permit!

I've been busy working on a few new patterns using the Broomstick Lace technique. I've finished another Scarf pattern that I am calling "Sideways Lace Scarf" and I am almost finished with a yet to be named Dishcloth pattern. I am going to post the patterns as well as submit them for publishing.....should something come of the publishing I can always take the patterns down, but until then I want to share them! =)

No plans for the weekend - I hope to get a few Christmas presents done so I can mail them back to the US - I am going to try to mail some lighter items to my parents to avoid issues with the weight of my luggage after all of the shopping I am sure to do in New York and Argentina! =) I'll have to get it mailed though in the next 2 weeks to be sure it is there by Christmas, so I have a lot to do quickly!

Has everyone started their holiday crafting? I am trying! I did finish a bunch of stitch markers / earrings and have a few snowflakes done. Hopefully I'll get a few scarves churned out this weekend.

I am doing two CAL / KALs currently - A Handy KAL for hand related items and a Hat / Scarves / Mittens / Warm Items CAL. Perfect for my holiday gift giving plans!

My Bags from the October Bag KAL that I took part in are not even close to being done. I think that they will go into the bins and be pulled out in December!

Ta ta for now!

Just 36 days, Kimberly!!!
Fall in Belgium, Spring here! Remember to wear a very light T-shirt when you´ll arrive here, because it´ll be almost Summer! You´ll feel the weather difference! ;)

Careful posting patterns-the CPAD lets you have the rights, but many places won't take anything that has been published, even for free, anywhere.

Happy Fall!
