Trick or Treat?

As some readers might remember, yesterday was the Knitsmiths' swap.  Many of us gathered at Thea's house for yarn, knitting, conversation, and of course, a few refreshments.

How about a treat?  How about a few of them?


Mmm, the appropriately named Mummy Wraps.


And the oh-so-seasonal Pumpkin Spice Whoopee Pies.

Yes, in a rare burst of domesticity, Subway Knitter got out her mixing bowls and spoons, measuring cups, and cookie sheets.  In a word: baking.

As you knitters know, one cannot swap yarn on an empty stomach.  People get cranky, there are fights, and pretty soon two knitters are rolling around the yard wrestling over a skein of Rowan.

Or not.  Anyway, a swap is a lot more fun when there are goodies to consume, and it's a lot more fun to cook when there is an audience.


And what an audience I had!  Here's our swap MC Johanna, with Claire a mere blur as she dashes back from the swap table.


Dana surprised us all.  Welcome back from Israel, Dana!  We missed you.

Oh, you might be curious as to what I took home.  I think that I did rather well:

First, there are two skeins of Artful Yarns Candy (the yarn kind, not the rot-your-teeth variety) in the Sour Apple colorway.  The label has a pattern for a one-skein baby hat.  Score!


(sorry about the bad photo)

Then there's some Legend in the Don Juan colorway:


(again, sorry about the bad colors)

There's a beret pattern on the label.  Score again!  I am really going to love calling this my Don Juan beret.

Thanks again, Thea, for hosting.

Happy Halloween to all the ghosts and goblins who read my blog!


Those are great scores! Enjoy knitting with them!

Those pumpkin spiced whoopie pies look amazing. I am a fool for pumpkin foods. You'll like the beret. I did it some time ago. A quick knit!

Sorry I was remiss in sending you a recipe for the whoopie pies--glad that you found one! Having a crazy life here. ;)

Mmmm. I don't know what looks like more fun, the food or the yarn. Yum!

Pumpkin spice whoopee pies -- yum!!

mmm those look so good! oh and so does the food!

Looks like a good time was had by all. And you came away with some nice yarns. Whoopie pies, whoopie! Pumpkin spice anything sounds good to me. Happy Halloween!
