Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, it looks like Halloween is going to be a particularly spooky night here ... wet, windy and wild ...
It'll soon be time to ignite the pumpkin:
Here's our messy pumpkin that no one was willing to touch!
And now for something completely different.
I veered from my course of making continuous hexagons (continuous?!), and made some pentagons instead! And once you start making pentagons ... well, you just can't stop.
Except you cannot join penties the same as you can hexies and expect them to lie flat. So you end up making these:
It's not perfectly round (lumpy stuffing job), and I know my stitches aren't supposed to show (according to all the instruction books I've read), but it's either my eyesight or just my sewing, but there they are for all the world to see. The Great Ball of Pentagon is complete.
Have a Happy Halloween tonight, whether you're trick or treating, or maybe just dishing out the treats. Enjoy!
