Cat on the Spiderweb Sign, originally uploaded by modeknit.

All up and down our street the fashion has become to put up a big spiderweb off the house, made with twine and usually with a big, huge spider somewhere in the web. Up the street the guys have put a stuffed kid in their web, a little errant trick-or-treater, right next to the spider.

Here’s our own version. I’ve recycled part of my sculpture from a few years ago and planted it into the ground with old aluminum knitting needles (the points were useless, this is a good end for them!)

You can see a tiny bit of Atticus in the lower right corner, and Gig is getting ready to jump on him.

Today we had another family look at the house – I made myself scarce at Panera – and we just got the call that another family will be looking tomorow in addition to the couple that’s already expressed interest to our realtor. Let’s hope they like spiderwebs.

I’ve been asked about participating in a knitting cruise, which sounds delightful, but I’d love to get a feeling for how many folks would realistically be interested in such an endeavor… I know it would be a huge hoot, that’s for sure!

Carlos Sweater, originally uploaded by modeknit.

I finished the sweater for Carlos, it’s turned out nicer than I hoped, with a little Fred MacMurray collar. All he needs is a pipe.

Tomorrow I teach at one of my favorite shops, The Point in NYC. I just love Helane, love her shop, and I love NYC in Autumn. Nothing nicer! Then on Sunday it’s up to Yarn Barn in CT for a Cocoon Shrug class and a book signing.

… and I may have been wrong – perhaps Autumn in CT is as nice as Autumn in NYC?
