Fun Halloween Projects!

I knit all year ’round but consider this week the official start to knitting and crochet season. I love seeing all the fall projects that pop up.  Pumpkins, spiders, and clowns are everywhere!  There are several Halloween inspired free crochet projects collected on Confessions of Crafty Witches facebook page (and some yummy recipes too) to get you started. They feature a raven, shrunken heads and a Chucky doll!

Here are some fun pattern finds where you can use your favorite Plymouth Yarns!

How adorable is this Candy Corn Hat? Free pattern and photo courtesy of Sarah Sagaser/sarahlou on Ravelry.

Happy Halloween!

I refuse to admit that I am behind on my Christmas knitting so I’m celebrating Halloween a little extra this year.  I have severe carpal tunnel that has been plaguing me .  Surgery on righty has been completed, lefty is going under the knife in just a couple of months.  Knitting has been slow going and crochet has been a little easier for me.  That being said….here are some things that make me happy about Halloween.
