A Halloween Tale of Terror

 Before I get to the scary part let me share my latest soap. Meet Hot Cocoa. It smells just like a steaming mug of Swiss Miss. Nothing scary here. It's major yummy. I can't wait for these chocolate soaps to cure.

I haven't been in the soap room this week because I've been busy. The Magic Mirror was a real pain in the... neck. It looks so simple but it was layers and layers of hand sewing that had to be done over and over to get it centered. I didn't make those curtains. I just bought them. Today I'll be shoving it on the ice to see if it works. Fingers crossed.

 Now for the scary part. Look at that. You all know what that is. Is there anything more terrifying for a knitter?

 I was so happy to find these socks that were lost behind the dresser. I washed them, wore them and never noticed they were infected. Of course I stuffed them in with my other socks before I realized. Sigh. What a mess.

All of my millions of socks are getting a good going over and a wash with my lavender and lanolin bar. Curse you, wool monsters.

On a happy note, a big thanks to Momolake who sent me a lovely box of goodies. Isn't that pumpkin dishcloth precious? I've already lit the candle and tested the pumpkin spice latte and I can tell you truthfully they are both delish. Mmmm, mmmm.....thanks again Momolake,  you are the bestest!!!!


  1. Oh no! So sorry about the socks. I never think to check my woolies for moths. I guess I should! How do you get rid of them?

  2. Sorry about your socks, they are so pretty.

  3. I had a fight with the moths this summer-I lost my skein of angora but they didn't bother most of my other stuff! Monsters indeed.
    Love the other goodies you have going on!
    That mirror is stellar!

  4. OH NO! Moths? That's a knitter's worst nightmare! And not JUST on Halloween!

    The gift package looks adorable and perfect for the season.

  5. That is a terrible sight for a knitter.
    Swiss Miss soaps sounds pretty awesome.

  6. Oh noes! I've found evidence of the little bastards in my house too!

  7. Your mirror is an amazing creation! And the soap sounds delightful. Sorry about the moths; nasty beasties!
