October Crochet – Day 01, Gloomy Corn

Inktober starts today. In case you don’t know what Inktober is, it’s a month-long challenge for artists to practice their inking skills by doing drawings either daily, every other day, or one a week.

I may consider doing Inktober this month, doing one drawing a month. Or I may not. I have a lot going on right now with Girl Scouts, and I’m working slowly but surely on setting up products to put in an Etsy shop.

However, there is one thing I am going to do this month – crochet. I started obsessively crocheting pumpkins at the beginning of September. It started when I found some scraps of orange yarn that I decided to use up, but then I started making bigger pumpkins, and you know, you can’t have pumpkins without candy corn, and of course, I love skulls so I had to make a couple of those as well, and the end result of all this is that my coffee table is now covered in crocheted pumpkins, candy corn and skulls.

So I decided to keep going. Having done a bunch of stuff in oranges and yellows, I decided to switch to darker colors. The result is a very gloomy set of candy corns, or as I call them, Gloomy Corns.


Gloomy Corn!

You can just see one of the regular candy corns peeking around in the background.

So I will see how far I can go with this. I have a few unfinished pieces from last month that need detailing, so those will be the next items you see. What I’m going to do with these at the end of October, I don’t know, but I’ll think of something!
