Happy Halloween!

This year for Halloween, the Wonder Woolmen hosted their second Instagram Challenge- Stitch or Treat! Each of these 10 days had their own unique Halloween-related photo prompt. I have compiled all of my photos from the past ten days, as well as the links for where you can find the patterns used! You can also see all of my posts from the past 10 days on Instagram and Facebook!

Fall in Love with Fall

Right now the fall leaves are at their prime, just starting to make their way to the ground. Farmer Ted and I headed out recently to enjoy them with a walk in the woods.

Trickiest Trick

 I felt like there were a couple of ways to take this prompt, but I decided to interpret it as something I find challenging, and that is definitely working on flat pieces like this ghost doily, called Boo! designed by Marsha Glassner (free on Ravelry!). This was also my first time working in thread so it was a double challenge! I’m used to an infinite number of single crochet stitches when making amigurumi, so this has been a challenge. I also had to frog rows quite a few times trying to keep the counts correct.

Crochet Treat

By far my favourite things to make are small amigurumi- to me they are indeed a ‘treat’. I have my own patterns, such as Lil Cuppa and Lil Teapot, but also love making ami patterns designed by others such as this little macaron from the book ‘Whimsical Stitches’ by A Menagerie of Stitches! I usually have a cup of tea close by when I crochet, so this picture is a double treat!

A Maker’s Fear

My fear is definitely working in black yarn! It’s hard on the eyes, easy to mess up, and you can’t really work on it at night. If you’ve gotten something from me in black, know that I truly love you! I also made a little spider out of my black yarn because my other fear is getting a creepy crawly friend in my yarn stash. That’s why almost all of my yarn is stored in closed plastic bins!

Pumpkins Everywhere

Pumpkin Bunny is in gourd company this year, having amassed quite the collection of both real and crocheted pumpkins!

Witch Stitch

‘Oh look, another glorious morning. Makes me sick!’ I made these adorable little witches inspired by the movie Hocus Pocus a few weeks ago for a friend who is a super fan! The pattern for these three ‘sistas’ comes from the incredibly talented The Crochet Queen Designs

Spider’s Web

My little collection of bug bears was out looking for candy and got stuck in this spider’s web! That’ll teach them to go trick or treating too early! Hopefully these three can figure their way out of this conundrum before the 31st!

Yarn Monster

Watch out, it’s the terrible and ever-fearsome yarn monster! It’s Day 8 of Stitch or Treat- Yarn Monster! Chirp the Chick was so egg-cited for Halloween that he just had to dress up (or more accurately make a mess of my yarn stash).

Maker in Disguise

I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that witch, even when I’m flying crazy. This prompt required you to remake a photo from another maker so I recreated a photo from the incredibly talented  YarnhildI absolutely loved the photo of her new witch design which you can see here on her Instagram page, so I thought it would be so fun to do the same photo with my own bunny witch! Yarnhild is an incredibly talented crochet designer with patterns available in multiple languages. I’ve made several of her patterns and love them all!
