Candydiosis

Besides BR here aging another year and celebrating our 10th anniversary at the House of Prime Rib, I was busy this weekend!

First, I was motivated by Ree’s chocolate truffle recipe and made my own Peet’s Coffee Truffles:

And my friend Laura and her “partner” are celebrating their 20th anniversary this weekend, so I decided to make them some market bags. I’ve completed 2 so far, and am finishing up a third. Unfortunately I only have one photo:

I wasn’t too fond of this pattern (the bottom really leaves a lot to be desired) and I ran out of yarn, so I had to make the handle in a different yarn, but I’m down 2.5 skeins of my over 750 balls of yarn! (Poor Kimberly told me she has 1500 balls! I can’t believe it – I’m drowning in 750!)

And finally on Sunday morning I took the kids to the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival. I think this is the current largest pumpkin of the year:
