happy halloween!

Brindle Bat wanted to stop by quickly to say, "Happy Halloween!" (she's knit from my Bat pattern - Rav link). I hope you all have a fun and spooky weekend!

Things have been a little quiet around here lately for a few reasons, but I should very soon have more time for thinking up fun and cute ideas for you! Lev is starting preschool next week - 2 days a week at a Montessori school. We hope this will give him the opportunity to socialize with other kids and adults, and learn a little too. It will also give me some much needed time to spend on Fuzzymitten stuff, which has been sadly neglected for too long.

I've missed blogging about knitting and all the other things I do (which you seem to enjoy reading about). I'm going to concentrate on thinking up some fun and useful items to post here leading up to the holiday season. There's at least one tutorial I've been meaning to get to for months...

One thing I can tell you about is a new hat pattern for kids and adults. I've been updating about that over on Facebook and Twitter. I have no photos yet, but it's a fairly simple and cute pattern that works for girls and boys of many ages. It should be ready sometime in November (I just need to get off the computer and actually knit the other 2 sizes).

That's all for now. Thanks for hanging out!

Thanks for being willing to help me, even though I finally had the sense to read the abbreviations key! I have two legs now and a body, and am raring (rearing?) to go on a head. This puppy will be for my grandson for Christmas, if I don't ruin him! Your bat is, of course, clever and charming. And I will always be delighted to see your name pop up on the reader - knowing that a treat is in store!

Suoer cute photos. I'm still trying to finish my bats. I'm intimidated by the head shaping (which my sane mind knows will turn out fine like it always does once I get over my fear of mangling the little beasties).
