October Crochet – Post-Mortem

So this is what I did last month…


Look what I made!

October Crochet, in total.

That’s a lotta crochet. At the time, it didn’t seem like I was doing much, but there’s a lot of work in that one picture. This image doesn’t included everything – there’s still one ghost I need to finish. And a few of these projects aren’t quite done. The ghost and the one candy corn need mouths, and I need to finish off the spider web and the Nautilus shawls, weaving in the ends and doing a bit of sewing here and there to polish things off. But otherwise, I did a LOT last month.

You’ll notice, of course, that there are two tiny figures in there that weren’t done this month…


Tom and Enid!

Meet Tom and Enid!

The little pumpkin guy and the little skully girl were made a couple years ago when I first started crocheting. I call them Tom and Enid. They’re probably the first amigurumi I made without  a specific pattern to work from. I borrowed a bit here and there from a couple patterns, and then made up a few things on my own. That was the point when I fell head over heels in love with crochet.

One other thing I’m supposed to mention – the missing day from October Crochet. What happened that one day that I couldn’t do even a few stitches? Well, this happened…

Rita Wright

This is NOT crochet!

These are props from the Murder Mystery Party we held for our Girl Sout troop. I was very, very, veeeeeeeeeerrrrryyyyyy busy that day, finishing up props, cleaning the house, printing out scripts, and then pretending to be the director of the Rita Wright Museum for Girl Scouts.  We had a lot of fun. And then I passed out.

But that’s what kept me so busy I couldn’t get any crochet done that day. So now you know. And honestly, I did crochet 30 out of 31 days last month, so I think I did pretty good!
