What is a ghost's favorite food?
Which is what we will be having for dinner, because we are nothing if not festive ... plus, the tomato sauce looks like blooood ...
Also - something FO this way comes:
This was one of the projects I mentioned in a previous post, that was a secret, so I couldn't provide more details. But the secret, which I call Pink Pirates, has been delivered to its recipient, who seems to be more than happy with it, so now I can show it to you. Here are the details:
Pattern: We Call Them Pirates, by Adrian Bizilla (a free pattern, btw)
Yarns: Black yarn is Dale Baby Ull; pink yarn is Classic Elite Fresco
Needles: US size 1 and US size 3 (and for me, US size 7 for binding off!)
Modifications: First of all, the recipient is my friend Lisa, who loves pink - therefore, the white skulls were replaced by pink ones. At the top decreases, the chart and my stitch count were not meshing, so I improvised and as far as I'm concerned, it turned out just fine. Also, I made it longer on the bottom. After taking out the provisional cast-on to make the inside flap, I just added about 8 more rows of the alternating pink and black to make the hat longer, as I wanted to be sure it would completely cover a person's ears. And, I have no clue how to do a provisional cast-on, so I just knit a few rows in a contrasting yarn, and then took them out when I was ready to do the inside flap.
Verdict: I really like this hat and the pattern! It was fun, not terribly hard to follow, and something good for a person who is relatively new to fairisle. I could have even had it finished in time for her birthday, if not for a serious bout of laziness and depression. But, as I said when I sent it to her, at least it's still October ...
Anyway, I would recommend this pattern, and can see myself giving it another go. And who knows what color those skulls could be the next time???
