1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Spider Pincushion on: September 28, 2018 02:49:31 PM
Here's a fancy spider pincushion made for the wonderful cmarion3 in the Vintage Halloween Swap. Her body and head are made from wool felt and her legs are pipe cleaners wrapped with floral tape painted black. She has a crepe paper collar (how I love the crepe paper) and embroidered face.

She has a crocheted web shawl and sits on a weighted wool felt pumpkin which is, of course, where one should stick their pins!

I am thinking she is somewhere between 6-8" tall, but forgot to measure before she was sent off. Happy Hallowe'en!

Haha! My daughter walked by and laughed too, and then told me a joke.

Why did the toilet paper roll down the hill?

To get to the bottom.

What is weird about your shawl, Jennie? Texture of the yarn, color flow? It looks perfect.

curiousfae, I have now made three of the skull shawls, so if you get stumped or have a question, let me know and I'll try to help you out. Personally, I work the pattern using the chart vs written instructions, but where the chart/written instructions stop, you are just repeating the previous number of rows it takes to complete a skull, with more skulls added at the ends, until you are satisfied with the size (or run out of yarn and have to dash to Michaels to buy more), and then finally adding the top border. That wonky bit at the very beginning is what killed me. I tried for the life of me to make the first two pom poms even. It ain't happenin'. So I just drank some wine while finishing the scarf and all was well.

Get ready to lose your heads, kids...the brilliant cmarion sent me my most favoritest Hallowe'en thing ever:

The Headless Horseman!! Isn't he fantastic? The details on this guy are outstanding, like all of the wee buttons and buckles and stitching.

There was a sweet hitchhiker named Korneilia (she's quite frightened of The Horseman):

And there was another surprise! He isn't lying down on the job. My picture refuses to rotate today.

ACK, he GLOWS! I love him! Thank you, thank you for my awesome Headless Horseman, the cutie corn, and the extra cones, cmarion!
