Samhain, a time to remember our family and friends who have gone before us. To remember all our ancestors at this time when the veil is at its thinnest. 

 In our belief Samhain is the end of a year and the beginning of a new one. Where the wheel of the year has completed its travel and is ready for a new start.
 New beginnings and a chance to reflect on the past year. Both its good and bad points.
 Good, well Mr Mog is still going strong and fighting the cancer all the way.
We have met up with friends old and new at various events, not the least being Mogfest in all its glory:)
 Bad, my health is getting worse. My body is not liking the damp and cold that this year has been filled with.
 But new year new attitude. I am not going to let it stop me creating or having fun.
 Today I am wearing black and Green. Black for those who are no longer with us and for the end of the year and green for new beginnings. The wheel moves on and brings new as it takes away the old

Oh and I thought you would like to see some finished items:)
 Wingspan shawl in same difference sock yarn from Knitting Goddess, colourway is bumble bee:)
 Yet another Pamuya shawl in zauberball sock yarn
and another Elsewhere jacket in Austermann
