I realize that Halloween is coming up pretty fast, especially for those planning to create costumes and/or decorations for this annual “ode to spirits that have passed”. However, in my wanderings around the internet I discovered that there is a National Ghost Hunting Day, celebrated on the last Saturday of September (this year, the 30th). This is a fledgling holiday, officially created in July 2016, but with a seemingly robust following (check out http://www.nationalghosthuntingday.com/home.html for more info). So in keeping with the “spirit” of the day, I have chosen to do a little of my own ghost hunting – of the crochet variety, of course!

I hope you enjoyed this little ghost tour and possibly found a little friend to crochet. Oh, yes – and happy hunting on the 30th!

Yes, it’s almost time for one of my favorite holidays! Getting spooked and having chills run down your spine are such wonderful guilty pleasures, but these two little cuties are only here to have fun. The original pattern is by Gateando Crochet and you can find the free pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ghost-amigurumi-2. (The designer didn’t put his/her name on the spider pattern, so I can’t give you the URL. I designed the hat but didn’t write down the pattern.)  Anyway, I hope you all have a delightfully scary Halloween!
