Ethel did take up the challenge from last week to make a Hallowe’en project. She showed up with a crocheted spider on her shoulder. She said it took almost as much time to insert wire into the legs as it did to crochet the whole thing.

Meanwhile, Ethel started a new project, fingerless gloves. She loved the colors in this yarn from Michael’s, but was stumped that it’s considered a worsted weight. It seems smaller than that


New project: mitts

I’m such a bum, I’ve only just picked up this knitting the first time since last week. But  I still have time to do a quickie project before Hallowe’en gets here…what will it be?
