A spooktacular day

Welcome to my haunted site....I'm your blogger, Skullella'. In honor of this 31st day, celebrating the fun holiday "Halloween", I've temporarily transformed my website.

I have some goodies to share with all you ghouls!

Halloween Pumpkins 2008

These freaky pumpkins were hand carved by little goblins last night, and YES, they made it finally to the Pumpkin Patch! My Mother was able to rush them to the Pumpkin Patch yesterday so we could enjoy a night of knives, cutting, stabbing, carving, and spilling the guts of the poor pumpkins.

Now ghoulies for my secret Halloween FO. I had been wanting to knit something special for Halloween, and like I always do, time got away from me and before I knew it, Halloween was just a week away. My original plan was to knit a black scarf with skulls in white yarn, but given that I only had a week to Halloween, I knew there was no way I was going to knit it by today. So I had to create my own pattern. I decided to make a cowl, a "Skull" cowl. I used black Malabrigo yarn with white "glow in the dark" yarn. I invested in 2 balls of the "glow in the dark" yarn about a month ago just for Halloween. I wanted the skulls to stand out as I'm Trick 'O Treating tonight.

This is my evil creation, which will be available for free on Ravelry within the next few days, it is my 1st official "Rocky Moreno Design".

I tried so many times to get a good shot, but the evils that be just didn't give in.

Here is the Skull Cowl being blocked late last night

And look at this frightening "Skullella" woman with skulls around her neck. (This is pre-blocking, so it's not as flat or straight as I wanted.)

Ahh! I yell when I see myself! I will frighten you with more pictures later tonight when we get all gored up.

I hope all you ghouls have a creepishly safe and fun night! Watch out for those goblins and vampires out there.

Skullella will return again tonight!

But wait, I have one more morsel to share with you ghouls, it is yes, "EYE CANDY", the latest installment from the "Madelin Tosh Society". 200 yards of luscious yarn. I was rushing this morning so I didn't get the yarn specs 8(.
