Wipocalypse November

 Since the last full moon I completed Autumn Angel by Joan Elliott.  Probably my last finish of the year.
I have gone back to working on Little Fairies at Play.  Will stitch on this one thru Saturday.
And of course I am still knitting away on my son's scarf.

 My Sister asked me to do a 4 mile run/walk with her friends on Thanksgiving morning.  It is the first time I have ever done one of these and it was alot of fun.  My sister got us these lovely hats to wear.  It did help so we could find each other in the crowd of 3044 people that participated.  The weather was beautiful - sunny and in the 40's.  My goal was to finish in under an hour as I am a walker and not a runner.   We did jog some - everytime we went down hill and for the last 1/2 mile.  I finished 2537 over all and in 1:02:00 a little over my goal.  For my first time I am glad 1) I finished 2) I was not last and 3) I finished in the middle for women in my age group.
Since I finished Autumn Angel I have been concentrating on knitting the scarf for my son.  I feel that I am at the half way point.  But I am missing my stitching so today I will work on one of my projects for a while.

 I have finally finished Autumn Angel by Joan Elliott.  Started 6/5/11 and finished 11/18/12.
 And I am a little late for TUSAL.  Here are my orts.  Only the threads from backstitching Autumn Angel and from the beading.
I am now working on finishing up the scarf I am knitting for my son.

 I finally have all of the back stitching done.  I now can start adding the 400+ beads!  Hoping to have it finished before the year ends.
 Still working on my son's scarf.  He is anxious for it to be done as the weather is getting colder.
While shopping at Walmart I spotted this cute pig in the pet toys.  When you squeeze him he oinks!  It is a deep oink.  I just had to have him as he made me smile.  My son also laughs whenever he sees him.  I guess we have the same sense of humor.  And no I do not have a pet to share this with.  I was thinking it would make a good white elephant gift.  But I can't give him up.  I will have to go back and buy another if I run into a white elephant gift exchange.
