Batty for October! But a bit belated…

So, I just found this post, and I guess it has been sitting here, gathering cyber-dust, while I thought I had already published it… So I guess better late than never. Here it is:

I wanted to knit a bat, in honor of the upcoming holiday… and came up with my own pattern! It’s not perfect, so I haven’t written it up yet. I need to make a few tweaks to the head and wings. Here’s my prototype, Stellaluna, named after one of my favorite books:

MY PHONE CHARMS CAME!!! It took awhile, but they were coming from a long way away. I have been waiting for awhile, but they are finally here, so I’m stoked. I have a gazillion hours of homework, so it will be awhile, but I’m looking forwards to creating some awesome phone charms for Etsy. I’M SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!! I will post again with photos and a link to the listing. Don’t hold your breath though, because it’ll be at least 3-4 days, and you will need oxygen to your brain before then. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
Another super exciting tidbit-it’s more than a week before Halloween, and I’ve got my costume all figured out. So proud of myself. I’m going to be Emily the Strange, who is awesome. I’ll post a photo for people who don’t know who she is, and for people who do know who she is but want to see a picture anyways. So, if you don’t have your costume yet, I’m sending you good luck. :D

Edit: WordPress app is being funny and not letting me post a photo. :( I suppose you can Google “Emily the Strange” until I figure this out. Sorry for the inconvenience. <3

Halloween is on it’s way…

I always love Halloween–there are skulls and bats and black cats everywhere, so how can I not? But the best part is making a costume. I was going to be Max, from Where The Wild Things Are, because I already have a hat, but I can’t find a good, not-really-expensive one-piece pajama anywhere and I don’t have time to make one. So instead, I’m being a Hogwarts student. I found these Gryffindor socks at a Halloween store, and I already have everything else except a white blouse. I think it will be easier to find then a pajama though.
Another thing I wanted to mention, Birch Fabrics is having a giveaway on their site. Te fabric is adorable!!
Anyways, I have been ridiculously busy lately, so I’m sorry there isn’t much to post about. I’ve made more beanies, and that’s about it. :( I need to have less homework, and more knitting time!!
