Some of the world's great monsters have untold stories, many, in fact, led quite happy childhoods before their later, more infamous years.

so, the front and back of the sweater are done. I also made a giant totebag for Grandma Emma for Christmas. And I finished the hat for little Emma. So, I totally feel pretty good about it all. Especially because my arms aren't breaking as much anymore. You see...crochet kills my hands, and knitting totally screws up my arms, so if I just sort of go back and forth a lot, neither one really gets completely broken. and that is good news.

My to-do list is still very long. I have also recently signed up to do a swap on Craftster. It is a Harry Potter at Christmas swap! how awesome is that? I know! Unfortunately, that means that I'll have even more things to work on. The swap runs from 10-25 until 11-30, so I have a little while, but dang... that's a lot, kind of.

I have to get started on my other October projects. Yes, I have them divided by month. This month I have to finish the sweater, and make 2 hats and 2 purses. not too bad really, and I'm trying to finish early and get a jump on November to give myself more time for the swap. At least the swap stuff doesn't have to be made of yarn, so if I'm having a yarn overload, I can always find other stuff to do.......yeah....right....
