October is fast approaching . . .

It’s hard to even say this out loud — but we are already over half way thorough the month of September! GASP! With the return to school, and the turning of the leaves, so have conversations of  fascinating and unique costume ideas from the minds of my middle school aged girls. Long gone are the days of fairies and princesses!  I just can’t help but giggle when my daughter tells me she would like to dress as a banana this year. I guess I will have to knit the things of fairy tales for myself while my girls take their hand at comedic dressings.

As a fiber lover, I can’t help but turn the pages of these amazing books we have here at Knit’n from the Heart for whimsical and wizardly inspiration. Does anyone else reach for your needles when considering your Halloween wares?
