Oogie Boogie Boo!

In anticipation of Halloween I pulled on my "Pumpkin King" socks and took Jake to see Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D.
Totally worth going to the theater to see. (Even if you own the DVD) The picture is so sharp and you are able to see every little detail. The movie really is visually stunning and Danny Elfman is a musical genius in my opinion.

Where has Thing 1 gone???? Oh, well. Thing 2 is ready for the school parade and costume contest. The students dress as characters from a favorite story...So Thing 2 by day and "Lego" man by night! (photo's coming soon)
The Socks that Rock "Dashing" mitts below were knit for Tammy and I loved the way they turned out so much.......................
I knit myself some in Halloween orange! Thanks to Devon, who gifted me with this gorgeous orange Berroco Touche'. Magic Loop on size 6 circs. I used 2 skeins - one for each mitt. Perfect for a chilly night of trick-or-treating.

Happy Halloween!

Beautiful! Love the color of your dashings. The yarn shows off the cables so so well.
Dan and I wanted to go see the 3d version but we are broke. I am glad it was as good as we had hoped!

I love your dashings! Beautiful!

Dashing looks great - I love the stitch definition on the cables. "Thing 2" is very cute - he has the face of an angel.

Wow! Dashing came out fab! I agree with Robin the stitch definition is divine.

Love the socks and couldn't agree more about Danny Elfman. I have a double disc of a lot of work and it never bores me.

I was bummed not to make it to the 3-D version in the theatres but getting married and spending 2 weeks in Mexico made it not so bad!!
