Happy Halloween!

This is Witch Hazel. She says hi.

I crocheted her about 12 years ago for Halloween and she sits out front every year with her cauldron full of candy.

Sunday night I started a new project and Monday morning we woke up to the first frost of the season. How appropriate that the new project is Frost Flowers and Leaves?

It's not that it's a difficult pattern, but it certainly requires full attention. Lots of yarnovers and knit togethers in weird places. I know it looks white in the picture, but it's actually a very light blue.

Hi Witch Hazel! Don't you look lovely? :)

I have been aching to start Frost Flowers, but I'm going to try and finish the Forest Path Stole first. Looking at your gorgeous piece makes it very hard to keep to that resolution!

That reminds me that I probably need to go over to Ravelry and put that in my queue. I've admired it ever since I got the book years ago, but don't know why I haven't tackled it yet. Yours is looking lovely!

Gorgeous work! (Okay, can you just see Ms. Green-faced Leicester hearing that and patting her hair in place just so, preening?)

Witch Hazel is fantastic! If I started now, I wonder if I'd have mine done by next Halloween? So many WIPs!!

Witch Hazel is quite the pleasant looking green-skinned lady, and what a nice start to Frost Flowers and Leaves!

FF&L looks great! I'd been imagining it in a super pale blue too. Did I miss the memo where you mentioned which yarn you're using?
