October Magic....what *IS* it?
Anticipation of Halloween? Anticipation of cooler days?
I dunno....but I love it. Feels super-energizing!
I have more than ever to do each day with my holiday crunch workload but I spring out of bed, ready to tackle it all, and even the exhaustion at the end of the day doesn't slow me down. Hands can't stay still...must stay busy! I must be a to-do junkie.
Hence.... I'm back to crocheting up a storm at night! The cooler evenings make yarn feel good in my hands, especially on a breezy night, back porch, dogs curled up at my feet.
Here is a recent DOUBLE-THICK Halloween scarf I made and sold already...but it sold so fast, I made another one just like it and have another one in the works that is slightly different--black & orange (vs. dark gray & orange).
A great way to wear October all month, BEFORE costume-day! Many folks I know who are die-hard Halloween-lovers, are not the least bit hesitant to wear orange & black ALL year...of which I am one! This 6 foot long x 8 inch wide scarf can even double as a shoulder-cozy. Double-thick (two color strands used) it will definitely keep you WARM. Crocheted in Trinity Stitch in saffron orange and Edwardian dark gray, it has a rustic heirloom look to it! Keep for yourself, or give to your favorite Halloween-Lover!
