Have you seen the knitty fall surprises?

There's the new pattern - My Vampire Boyfriend by the wonderful Kate Atherley.

Vampire Boyfriend Socks

I took the photos for this awesome pattern months ago, and have had to keep quiet!
But I can show you now!

The photos were taken at U of T, and my sister was the model, it was a lot of fun! I especially enjoyed the looks we got for parading around the campus, and taking photos of socks and stakes. Messing with people is fun.

Now I've got to knit the socks, as we all know I'm definitely one of the vampire-obsessed.

What is there to do in Rochester you ask?

Well, my parents and sister came to visit yesterday, and we found out!
First, we went to High Falls.
High Falls
High Falls is a giant waterfall in the middle of downtown. You'd think a tourist attraction like that would attract many people on a unseasonably warm late October day, right?

Wrong. There was no one there!
Rochester's downtown is deserted though.
After High Falls, we went to Wegmans, the local grocery store for lunch. Unless you've been to Wegmans, you cannot understand why a grocery store is on the agenda for visiting family. Apparently, the Wegmans near my house is the biggest one in the US, and it's got sooo much! Even my father, who hates grocery stores could not shut up about it after he ate "the biggest sub ever!"
I had a tofu burrito. It was yummy.

Then, we went to the Eastman House.
I took stupid photos, since I'm there everyday, and it's nothing new to me!

Here's Cheryl reading the newspaper over George Eastman's shoulder.

And us outside the Discovery Room, which is the best room in the house!

After GEH, we went to Target, because obviously, my sister and my mom wanted to go shopping! I bought some clothes!
Then we went to dinner.
Then they drove home, and I wrote a paper on Nicole Richie. Grad school is fun!
