Counting Down to Halloween

It’s October, and for me that means Halloween yarn countdowns! I scaled it way back this year – 1 daily miniskein countdown and my Mom kindly gifted me a weekly small project one. Both are from Fangirl Fibers. I’m really enjoying both πŸ™‚

Week 1 of the daily countdown, themed 31 Days of Haunted America! Each day has a card with details about a haunted location or item and a miniskein inspired by the place. I did not keep these in order, but the inspirations are the Hope diamond, the Riviera Hotel in Vegas, Waverly Hills Sanitorium, Bobby Mackey’s Music World, the Crescent Hotel, Boldt Castle, and Dudley Town, CT.

The box came with some extras – tea and cute stitch markers πŸ™‚

The weekly countdown has a small project kit to open each Monday. It is cryptid themed, so that is going to be fun too πŸ™‚ Last week’s was a

Mothman shawl kit!! It did also come with a pattern, which is pretty cool πŸ™‚ What does Mothman tea taste like, you may ask?

As a side note to the yarns, I had not heard of Thesaurus Tea before this, but I will definitely be checking them out.

Have your gotten any nifty new craft supplies lately? Do tell!

  1. Some lovely yarns so far, remove the green and you’ve a beautiful set in my colours πŸ˜‚ The stitch-markers are super cute, I’m hoping to resist buying anything else the rest of the year now. Well that’s the lie I’m telling myself πŸ˜†

  2. Very fun! Sadly, my only new craft purchase lately has been an emergency 3rd ball of yarn because I realized that I would not have enough to finish a pair of gift socks I’m knitting. Luckily the store still had the same colorway! (And it’s a large manufacturer that doesn’t seem to do dye lots.) So it was a good purchase, but not an exciting one.

    One of these days I’ll do Halloween-themed knitting! I always love seeing the projects and themed yarn my blog friends post, but I haven’t yet remembered about it early enough in the year to include it in my knitting plans.
