But when I got home some lovely post was awaiting me. Look:
I can't knit for toffee. I would never be able to make something like this in a month of Sundays. So when I saw a picture on the facebook page of a bookcrossing friend whose Mum had made one for a shop, I just had to see if she'd be able to make me one. I just love her hat and swirly cape. She has green long johns on. Well they might be tights, although I think probably long johns given how drafty it must be on a broom. Her pumpkins are sort of glowing and have little personalities of their own. I fleetingly thought of naming the witch after someone that hadn't been very nice to me a while back. But really this witch is far nicer.
I've never really done Halloween/Autumn decor before this year. It's a very American thing to do I think. Given my mixed feelings towards this time of year I thought it might make the season more cheery.
I may not keep up with the Blogtoberfest thing the next few days as Chief is down tonight for a long over due visit.
