Crocheting and seasonal longing



Visiting blogs over the last few days I have noticed that I am not
the only one who is already starting to prepare for autumn
and Halloween. I love seeing the treasures my American blog friends
bring back from the stores, spooky outfits and horror movie posts!





I finished my second crocheting project, extra warm wrist-warmers.
Last year I bought some huge balls of yarn in purple and pink
and now I'm noodling on what to make next. Maybe leg-warmers?
 
I have some fears regarding the pumpkins this year. So far we don't
have a single baby. The only two we've seen have been eaten by slugs.
But more than that, we were so late planting this year that even if
a few pumpkins start growing they might not have time to mature
in time for Halloween. It's a bit disappointing :(

  1. Those wrist-warmers are beautiful. Not in the Halloween/autumn mood yet, though.

  2. Wow, what a nice shade of purple! Maybe you could knit a matching scarf? ^^

    The same thing happened to my pumpkins I planted at my mom's place; I only planted a few, but I did it too late as well and the weather wasn't too kind to them, so I'm afraid, I won't have any by Halloween...

    1. I would, but I already have way too many scarves... :)

      I'm sorry about your pumpkins too :( I'm still hoping mine will pull through.

  3. Lovely wrist warmers! I can knit, but crochet is hard for me. I can cast my stitches on, but getting that first row on without twisting everything up has so far proven impossible.

    1. I also knitted for a few years before I took up crocheting, and I felt much safer knitting. But after some practice I find crocheting is much easier, also to bring out at work.

  8. Love those purple beauties. I'm enchanted by any kind of fingerless gloves.

    And yep, I've been putting things together for Halloween, too. Working on our costumes for New York Comic Con, right before Halloween as well.

    Ah, the garden... Our peppers, which I usually start harvesting mid July might be ready in a few days. I wonder if Nature it's just a bit tired. Then again, I also did some late planting.

  9. The wristwarmers are beautiful ... do you sell them in your shop? You should!

    Oh no, no pumpkins? That is disappointing. :(

    1. That is so sweet of you! But considering the time it takes me to make, I don't think anyone would want to pay for them...

  11. Åh nej, vad tråkigt att det inte blir några pumpor, trots värmen. Du får försöka glädjas åt att jag i allafall har lyckats för en gångs skull ;). Jag har 3 stora pumpor på gång och ett par små. Bara inte frosten slår till nu...

      Hur har det gåt efter branden, nådde den er?

    1. "Snood"? Is that a Welsh word for cowl? Either way it's fun :) Thank you!
