“Boo”tiful Projects

Categories: Hallowe'en, Knitting, Plastic Canvas, and Sewing.

~ Hallowe’en is a fun time for little children.  It’s a time for witches, ghosts, goblins and jack o’lanterns.  It is a great time of year to make some quick and easy projects.  So why not make some cute Hallowe’en projects for the kids or grandkids. In our family it is an extra special day as our little pumpkin was born on that day in 2009.  She wore her little knitted pumpkin hat I had made on the way home from the hospital.  She still has the hat and one of her dolls wears it now.  Big brother is now

With cold weather approaching very quickly I’ve just completed a hat in greys and white with the left over yarn from my recent bags.  Keeping your head, especially your ears, warm in the extreme cold is a really good idea.  Now I hate wearing anything on my head at all … but on those really cold, windy and snowy days when it is time to shovel snow of the walks and driveway I’ve got a nice warm and cozy hat to pull on.

All Things Spidy

Categories: Crochet and Knitting.

Our oldest grandson loves Spiderman so over the past few months I’ve been making him some Spiderman items.  So naturally for Hallowe’en he was dressed in a Spiderman costume. First I made a crochet afghan for his birthday in June.  This is a lovely round ripple crochet pattern. With cold weather coming I made a crochet hat with some of the leftover yarn. I found a nice pattern at A Dog in a Sweater blog.  I just changed up the colours to suit our five and a half year old grandson. Next I got out the knitting needles and used more of
