Do you get excited about creating for Halloween?
This year we will be celebrating Halloween in Spain along with lots of other families.
My kids are excited to design their own costumes for the day.
I will never forget my first experience of being invited to a Halloween Party.
I was utterly blown away by the Halloween decorations placed in and around the home.
It looked very spooky with bats, spider webs, ghosts, and glowing pumpkins!
Such fun 🙂
This week’s crafty goodness is all about Halloween crafts.
On My Needles
Have you ever knitted with 2mm needles?
I have been swatching for my next pair of socks which is using yarn I got in Amsterdam, along with 2mm fixed circular needles.
My toe up socks are on 4mm needles, I haven’t finished them yet, just the cuff to complete.
Knitting on 2mm needles feels so strange. The stitches are tiny! I hope my gauge will match the pattern of 36 stitches and 44 rows in the measurement of 4×4 inches.
Yarn Spotlight: Knit Picks Palette Yarn
Designed especially for Fair Isle and colorwork, you’ll find hues that span the entire gradated wheel, including supporting neutrals and a full complement of heathers. Consider Palette for warm and durable socks, slim-fit sweaters or felted items.
