happy halloween

it wouldn’t be a knitspot halloween without the annual viewing of bret’s house—i know you’ve been waiting for it. we’ve been watching it evolve since october 1st. from a distance you can see that there is a lot going on, so let’s draw a little closer to view the details . . .

i just love those burlap-swathed skeletons with hats on, hahaha!

new this year is the skull inside a bottle—bret is happy to add water for showy smoke effects while you wait

back again is the underground stowage, complete with pig-headed person. sadly, someone stole the bearded figure’s head sometime last week.

up on the porch a vignette of witches and other goblins preside over the ordered chaos

and from the trees a host of friendly ghosts is carried by the wind.

wherever you are, i hope you are enjoying a fun-filled night with an extra hour of sleep as a final treat!

    Happy Halloween to you too! I just cast on for my own pair of Regatta socks and I’m really excited. I already finished the toe (short rows are just like colorwork or lace… just one more row…)

    That’s quite the display there – how festive for the season. Maybe the skeletons need some knitted hats?? Bret is very creative – how fun.

    Wow, does he get equally as excited about Christmas? I’d love to see what he does for that.

    Fun-filled night? Yes. Extra hour of sleep? Nope. Kids under 5 just don’t “do” the time change. *Sigh*
