Halloween knits...

A couple of projects inspired by the latest holiday.



My first attempt at fair isle knitting. I've had this pattern for years but was always afraid to attempt it. I decided to try it with the leftover yarn from Jake's sweater, but it came out a little too big for Jake so Brian gets my first attempt. Jake was quick to put in a request for a matching hat.

Baby pants.... wait for it....




That's just ridiculously cute! 
Now if only I knew someone with a... say, two week old baby boy... any takers?
I'll hopefully have a picture or two with them on a cute baby in a couple of weeks. :)

And to wrap up the Halloween creativity I'd like to share a poem my son wrote for me:

Zombie Sheep Attack!
By Jake
age 8

Zombie sheep are coming, so run away!
Zombie sheep are coming, today!
All they really want is their wool back,
But I don't like them.
Ack!
They're big and merry,
Definitely not hairy, 
And that's why they're so scary,
At least to me!
Zombie sheep attack!!!

I love this kid. He just makes me smile.

Love both knits. You are amazing! Alicia had a baby boy yesterday. I am sure you could strap those cute monster pants to her new little one ;)
