Happy Halloween!!

Hope everyone who celebrates had a magical Halloween. For everyone else, hope your Monday was good πŸ™‚

My annual yarnstravaganza is over now, leaving me with a lot of miniskeins and some nifty small project kits. Here are the last two of the Fangirl Fibers Cryptids kits:

Left is Nessie, which comes with a hat pattern, and right is the Jackalope, with a sock pattern. All in all, these were great kits – nice yarn, nice patterns for the most part, good tea, and cute stitch markers in the bargain πŸ™‚ And now I’m thinking of doing a cryptid-of-the-month small project next year, as I have enough cryptid-related patterns and kits to make it 10 months already.

Here is the final 9 days of my Haunted America miniskein countdown set, also by Fangirl Fibers:

The haunted things represented are (l to r) the Pfister Hotel, Milwaukee WI; Patience Worth; the Goatman’s Bridge, Lantana TX; Emily’s Bridge, Stowe VT; the Mark Twain house, Hartford, CT; the Lizzie Borden B&B, Fall River MA; House of the 7 Gables, Salem, MA; Winchester Mystery House, San Jose, CA; the Bell Witch Cave, Adams, TN.

And finally, here is the whole countdown in no particular order:

There are some lovely yarn colors here! I don’t think I will use the whole set in one thing. However, there are some groups of minis that look good together, so this will likely go into several smaller projects.

It’s always fun to have a little present to open every day, and it’s going to be a bit of a letdown tomorrow morning. However, I have a lot of lovely haunted and cryptid-themed yarn to tide me over until next year!

  1. Wow, that is some great yarn! And I’ve been to the Winchester Mystery House, and I feel like that color is a good choice to represent it. The outside of the house is yellow, but there’s a lot of that rich red color in the drapery inside. Plus, it just fits the vibes.

      1. The Winchester Mystery House is fun, but honestly it mostly depends on the guide. I’ve had good tours and mediocre tours. (It’s a local site for me, so I’ve been several times.) I like the ones best that focus on the history instead of the “oooh, spooooooky” part, but that’s personal opinion. On the other hand, the flashlight tours can be a lot of fun too! (But there’s more spooky and less history in those.)
