I am so glad to be done with all the kids costumes. I waited until last weekend to start, and I’m still in shock that I finished them all in time. It doesn’t help that once I get an idea of something to add, I can’t not add it. ya know? Like Allysa’s kitten costume had to have a collar because it made it look sweeter (and less like a rat). Corra’s vampire cape had to have glitter (come on, its glitter!). Bryce’s Indiana Jones costume had to have a “whip” and a satchel (Indiana Jones has to have a whip, even if its really a bunch of rope tied together and it doesn’t even unravel). My costume had to have eyes too, not just teeth, claws, nose and ears. Kailey *neeeeded* to have mittens so her little Red Ridding Hood hands didn’t freeze.
Of course I thought of this the night of October 29, you know like a day from Halloween.
good thing she has little hands.
pattern: my own
needles: US8 (5mm) I also used a crochet hook to make the chain.
yarn: Paton’s Classic Merino in red held double
started: night of October 29
finished: morning of October 31
Now, I should probably start the laundry that I’ve been ignoring for the past 3 days or vacumme the stray pumpkin seeds that escaped the vacuum Wednesday night after the pumpkin carving.
eh, I don’t wanna.
Happy Halloween all, spooky pictures of the kids in there costumes tonight after trick or treating!
