October yarn along.

october yarn along with amigurumi pumpkins and knitting scarf.Ginny from small things  hosts yarn along and invites us to show what we have been reading and making and encourage our friends to join us. Details of joining in are here. I have been visiting one  of my my favorite libraries (Northcote, Darebin) and borrowed Umberto Eco (author of The Name Of The Rose) “The Island of the Day before”.  Meanwhile I am crocheting up a pumpkin storm for Halloween markets and gifts. I am happy with the reception and feedback from this pattern. I am told it is quick and easy and one woman told me she made 3 in an hour!  If you haven’t got a copy yet, get one from here.  or of course from my store on ravelry. It is perfect if you are a beginner crocheter and fun for the more experienced. Enjoy!

  1. There are definitely pumpkin treats on the way. I’m still deciding what to do for Halloween, though. I have a couple strong contenders.


  2. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, “The screwtape letters”. What a compassionate, brilliant and amusing writer was C.S.Lewis.? It is always fun to see the critters destroying a holiday appropriate toy. Mine have the Halloween “samples” to play with minus the choky eyes.
    Thank you for your comment, perhaps there will be a Halloween cup cake on the horizon? My house is full of paper bats and crocheted pumpkins. Why not? Why not indeed. 🙂 🙂


  3. I’ve been sitting here all grumplestilskin like about all the pumpkin crafts in my feed on Pinterest. Saying things like “Why would I want to put pumpkins all over my house?”. You, my friend, have answered that question with these adorable little things. I’ll take a hundred, plus two for the kitties and I will never take them down. 🙂

    I just started The Screwtape Letters from CS Lewis. I’m throughly enjoying this ‘classic’ I’ve never read before. I recommend it.


  4. No I havent! I was a little disappointed in myself because I loved “the rose”. I just couldn’t get into it. Your comment made me feel much better. 🙂


  5. Have you finished Umberto Eco’s book? I tried to read it, because I saw the movie and want to know more about. But that was really hard to read, I felt like sitting in latin-lessons again ( we really had a deacon as teacher) and it was very verbose….
