just a little something i whipped up last night - whooo whooo
first off, just want to mention to those who comment, that blogger seems to be taking 12 hours or so to post the comments. i have an email into them...
well i finally got around to taking a pic of my hallowig. it isn't very spectacular, pretty much the same as the pattern pic since i used the very same yarn. i feel like adorning it somehow, but haven't had any brilliant thoughts. here is the pic
along with the wig, i have made some fake knitting needles for my halloween costume out of lightweight dowel. hopefully they will stay in place on my face with the scar clay goopy stuff. i totally spaced out too, i was planning on having them coming out of my forehead and realized the wig had long bangs. the needles are going to be annoying coming out of my cheek.
besides the french market bag woes, i have also been knitting my winter poncho. i altered the SnB pattern for smaller yarn and so far (well, i did have a few trial starts) it is going well. it was fairly simple because 2 of my stitches equal one of the patterns. not too complicated to figure out. i have some great plans for this - but i will wait to share! i agree with those out there who say ponchos are on their way out so this will probably be my last. i like the incoming capelet trend though. and i think wraps are a safe bet as they will forever be in style. i enjoyed the poncho trend before they showed up in every darn store! some of them are soooo cheaply made.
hope you all have a great halloween!
