T Tuesday: ending October, begining November edition

Last week I wrapped up my first ever daily photo challenge. I stayed on track and was only more than 24 hrs late with a prompt once. That one I missed for days before realizing my mistake. Here are the last four prompts of the month.

28. Pimp it up…not sure what that meant so I shared my freshly decorated coffee table.

29. Costume…I was a cowgirl for work….yes, we were asked to dress up for school.

30. Treats….our bowl of goodies ready for the kiddos.

31. Halloween…our neighbor out having fun along with the kids

This is the challenge I’m doing this month. It appears that FatMumSlim does her challenges in a Facebook group now but I’m still going to do them on Instagram daily and share them in groups here. In fact here are the first 6.

1. Something blue….handmade bowl J made in school.

2. I saw this!….brand new choir sweatshirt lost or abandoned one day after receiving them.

3. Weather….snow before we got the outdoor stuff put away for winter.

4. Can’t live without….my morning coffee. (got my T Tuesday beverage in)

5. 8 o’clock…that was 8AM for Marvin

6. Made me smile today…wearing my late mom’s necklace to work

Over the weekend I was inspired to pick up my knitting needles again. I’ve been helping the past two weeks in a FACS (Family and Consumer Science) class in a couple of intro to knitting sessions. The kids are using pencils as knitting needles. It’s been really fun watching them struggle through and have it click all of a sudden. We’ve had several boys in the class as well. Nice to see them trying something new. 

I’m trying to follow a pattern for a stocking hat.  The pattern is in a very old knitting magazine I found in my mom’s craft bin. She never, ever knit so I’m not sure were it came from but what the heck…I’ll give it a shot. I’m using a self striping yarn…or at least that’s what I believe it to be. Like I said…giving it a shot. I do think I need to be using longer needles. I can’t remember where I put the rest of mine though…hmmm.

The days this week are all pretty much the same but I’m looking forward to Friday this when our school spends the morning honoring Veterans Day. I have heard so many wonderful things about it that I can’t wait to experience it myself.
What are you doing today?

    They are super photos for your challenge and your Mom’s necklace looks so pretty.
    The knitting sounds fun, I taught my boys to knit when they were young, it was quite an eventful time, you guessed it, they gave up very quickly..
    Happy T day wishes.

  3. Can’t wait to see your finished stocking cap. It is tres chic. 🙂 Your photos are fun too. I’m doing the black and white on facebook and I always forget to add one. Not a facebook gal I guess. Anyhow, the monster-ish looking creature in your photos made me smile. Hope its a great day and happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  4. I loved seeing all your photos on Instagram and your great interpretations of the challenge themes 😀. You look wonderful in your cowgirl outfit, I loved seeing the handsome Marvin and your mum’s necklace is so beautiful! The stocking cap you are making looks so cute – I love it 😁. Wishing you a very Happy T Day! J 😊

  5. You’re quite clever with the photo challenge ideas, Halle. I love these day-by-day collages. I wouldn’t know what to do for “pimp it up” either – even after I looked up the meaning – lol.

    You made that blue bowl? Outstanding! Knitting with pencils sounds like quite a challenge.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  6. Is Instagram for photos only? I know. I feel like a mushroom, kept in the dark, and fed poop (joke). Another social media site I need to join, right? You certainly didn’t look yourself in that selfie. Your hair looked like mine does every day: short and curly. LOVED that necklace and the blue bowl J made you. He’s very talented. And Marvin always steals my heart with those big inquisitive eyes.

    My art friend Norma knitted a small sweater for a techniques altered book swap using TOOTHPICKS. Can you believe it? I would take that photo, scan it, and turn it into a great piece of art. You can have the directions, because I no longer knit (or crochet).

    Thanks for sharing your photos, your knitting project, and your mug of coffee with us for T this Tuesday, dear friend.

  7. Glad your having fun with the photo challenges and that you’ve picked up your knitting needles… that hat looks really interesting.. I hope you’ll show us when finished…. Happy T day Halle! Hugs! deb

  8. That stocking cap looks so lovely and I hope you share it when it is completed. I just picked up my needles again and I started on a Christmas stocking. It is nice to working on something again.
    Happy Tea Day,

  9. I think I must have missed some of your IG photos – or maybe my memory is failing as much as hubby says it is!! It’s OK he is teasing and I give back as good as I get when he forgets something(he IS 4+ years younger than me!)
    I’ve got as far as getting my needles and wool out and intended starting a triangular scarf last nigh but kept nodding off in front of the TV so they’re still untouched! Enjoy Friday! Belated Happy T Day! Chrisx

  10. Love the stocking cap your making. The photo challenge is a great for inspiration. Love it! Belated happy t(ues)day and a happy T(hurs)day.
