Ahhh, fall..and other junk!

I love fall.. Here in MN it's beautiful.. You have such a wide variety of weather, it can be 80 one day and two days later it could be snowing. Today is gray and wet, not super cold. The air is heavy and I like that. Sometimes it's just nice to have days like that. This guy is a metal skeleton stake thing that I bought at JoAnn's last night.. It was 50% off. I thought it was cute so I decided that if I bought anything else that I would get him, and since it's not hard to find stuff to buy at JoAnn's, especially in the fall when I'm knitting all kinds of junk. Plus, I had some coupons and you can use more than one. And when I came home I stuck him in the yard so when Mom came home she would see him. She thought he was cute.
This is my second wristband, it turned out a lot better than the first one, but it might be a little small, but it's fairly stretchy so it'll be ok. I'm also working on a wristlet, like a fingerless glove, but I'm putting a thumb on it. I did this thing I've seen called "fetching" and you knit the stitches on waste yarn then you slip them back and knit them again and when you take out the waste yarn you have two sets of live stitches that you knit to make up your thumb. So we'll see how that goes. But I'm pretty excited about it. But I've decided that I like making singular things like A scarf or A hat. This stuff where you have to make 2 seems like a lot of work.... But I might try making 2 at a time.. with 2 circulars.. If I can figure that out..
Well, this weekend should be fun B/F and I (if he still wants to go) are invited to a German themed Halloween party. I'm not going to dress up, mainly because I don't have to. I'm kind of excited because it's my friend from H.S. and her husband who are having the party and I haven't seen her in about 2 years. Even though she lives like 7-8 miles away. But really that's all I have going on.. I have to get some new glasses, and I hate shopping for glasses. Anyone who wears glasses will probably understand thing.. because you can't see with out the glasses but you need to see what they look like on your face so you gotta put them on (but you can't see) and try to figure out if you look like a doof-wad or not.. Plus, you got someone asking if you like these or these or what about something like this.. So it's generally a good 'ol time.. And bringing someone with you doesn't help at all, because they can see, and you might not like what they like. Writing about it makes me want to do it even less.. damnit! Oh well, I could probably find some if I just sucked it up! Plus, I'm a cheap skate- so I try not to spend a shit load even though the last pair I got cost like $200 but that was with a nice discount thru my insurance.. Well, that's enough boredom for one day. See ya'll on the flip-flop..
