So Worth The Effort

Like these other goofy, crafty folk, I was frantically finishing up a Halloween costume yesterday...

Yes, I knit a wee fur balaclava and horns, and then sewed a furry striped fleece sweater and fish pants. This wacky idea was actually proposed by one of y'all, my three kooky readers. And I just want to say that working with furry stuff was harder than I thought. Doable, but fuzzy and messy and hard to count knit stitches or stuff under the foot of the sewing machine. But oh my, the results!

















At first we weren't sure how the Tankster was going to handle the whole shebang... So we started off easy, sort of looks like the start of an elvis costume...

But then he took to it pretty well, and was a champion Wild Thing the whole night!

He even started "goring" daycare friends with his fuzzy horns...

At the end of the evening, he had the drill down so well he sat and handed OUT candy to other kids at a friends house. And just incase you've forgotten, here he is to remind you that "You da man!"

Indeed well worth the effort! And are you sure you only have 3 kookie readers? Seems there are at least 3 in the family that I know of!!!

Love,
Dad

So Cute!!!!

OMG, you rock, as usual, my crafty pal.
I'll try to get a few pics of Asher's costumes posted one of these days (yes, he had multiple), though we did suffer a wee camera snafu, so I need to collect pics from alternate sources than the usual easy-download/upload. Post-Halloween, of course, said easy camera finally re-appeared.... ah well.
Glad you guys had fun!!!
We miss you!
