Happy October!

It's finally here. The start of my favorite holiday seasons - Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas.

I've already started decorating my home for Halloween with the exception of some things I still need to create. Pics will be posted once I'm finished with it. But, in the meantime, here are a few of this year's Halloween homemade decorations:

Just a few fun squishy pumpkins, made with recycled yarn no less. And then Zero from 'The Nightmare Before Christmas.' To make your own Zero, here's the pattern.


  1. Hey, Helen! How have you been? Got here from Joe's blog. I was wondering, are you on Ravelry?

  2. Nope. Is that just a picture-sharing thing? Or is there more to it?

  3. Ravelry is an online knitting/crochet community. It's got a database of knitting and crochet patterns, tons of groups so you can chat with likeminded knitters/crocheters, projects pages so you can organize your projects, etc. I joined when I started knitting again last year, and I love it!

  4. Thanks! My username is hovermoyer if you want to friend me.

  5. I admire your ability to knit. I would love to make some of those pumpkins! Guess I need to up my knitting skills. Or were they crochet?
