Bucket Loads of Fun!

Hooray! Just launched a new pattern for Halloween! Now I know I’m cutting it a bit fine time wise but these Bucket Head Trick or Treat bags are crocheted with doubled up worsted weight (aran/10 ply) yarn and a big hook so they really don’t take that long to make.

Come and meet my empty headed and empty bellied Vampire, Witch and Pumpkin who are just waiting to be filled up with loads of Halloween candy 🙂820HalloweenLineThey’ve got dangly arms and legs and a comfy handle to carry them around with.

Even though my kids are a bit too old to go trick or treating now I shall be making them one each and filling it with their favorite chocolate. Because chocolate is the one thing they don’t seem to have outgrown yet! (I’m still waiting too!)

Trick or Treat!

Autumn (or Fall for my friends over the pond) is fast approaching and my thoughts are turning yet again to all the wonderful cosy treats and celebrations that always cheer up our journey into the tail end of the year. With dark nights beginning to draw in, a chill in the early morning and late evening air and a definite lack of sunshine around here, there are less reasons to be lolling around in the garden or lazing on the beach and more reasons to be tucked up under a favorite Granny Square blanket, warm and glowing with the pleasure of a new crochet project or two, or three, or four, or in the case of this new pattern – five!

So come and meet my new, Autumn season bunch of mini makes.820HallySquareIt’s another one in the Minimals range and I’ve called this one ‘Teeny Halloweeny’  – mainly because they’re really rather teeny and extremely Halloweeny!

This gang of diminutive Fright Night dress ups will promise to be the life and soul of your Halloween party.820woodsThey may well be the cutest Trick or Treaters that you’ll ever find knocking at your door and they’re certainly every bit as sweet as all that candy they hope you’re going to give them!DSCN4785I’ve  had such a lot of fun designing these diminutive Trick or Treaters. They work up nice and fast and it’s very satisfying to have your finished results so quickly. I’m planning on making a whole crowd to hand out to my real life Trick or Treaters this year, along with the usual selection of lollipops and chocolates. I can’t wait 🙂

Who’s missing the summer already? Not me!

The last of the pumpkins

As it’s now time to replace all things autumnal with all things wintry I thought it would be a good idea to get our last pumpkins from this years Halloween celebrations chopped up and put to good use.

Pumpkin-soup

After roasting the pumpkin in a tray with garlic, rosemary, thyme, a few carrots and an onion for a good half hour, the Pumpkin Patch People and I decided to make a delicious and warming soup. We just added some organic vegetable stock, ground black pepper, a great big dollop of creme fraiche, and a squeeze of lemon.

Then a quick whizz in the blender, a gentle re-heating on the stove, and it was ready to eat. Easy peasy!

Of course after all their help growing and harvesting on the allotment this autumn the Pumpkin Patch People had to have their fair share of the bounty too. Here they are, about to give thanks and tuck in to their steaming hot cups of soup. Oooh, there’s nothing like the taste of home grown veggies!

Oh, and if you think that the Pumpkin Patch People look very relaxed with all this pumpkin chopping, roasting, and liquidizing going on, it’s because they know we are vegetarians just like they are, and would never eat a pumpkin if it also had a head, let alone such a cute smile!
