Halloween

I haven't made a halloween costume in years. Previous costume attempts included a generic tunic used for grecian party and a fairy (of sorts) for halloween, and a pirate costume cobbled together from my first corset attempt. I have stashes of historic costume patterns and I could love any terrible movie or show as long as the costumes are amazing. (Boardwalk empire is my current favorite). I love the idea of making costumes, but unless I have a reason to make them, I don't. This year I let the Burdastyle/Bernina Halloween costume contest pass me by again. But then yesterday my company annownced it's own "Hant Couture" halloween costume contest. The deadline is week from now, and I don't even need to take pictures to upload them. Well, inspiration struck me immediately and I then went out a lunch to source fabrics. Here are some of my inspiration pics.

New Project: Fall Sweater

I'm starting a sweater! ***
The pattern is Wisteria from Lion Brand.
The Lion Brand Blog is hosting a KAL and I decided I need a new sweater for this fall and winter.
The yarn is Amazing, and the colorway I chose is Violets:
Pretty, huh?
Wish me luck!

***Disclaimer: Ok, actually I have a bunch of sweaters still on the needles but I'm a sucker for this style, which does not already exist in my closet, and I had a 20% off coupon at the Lion Brand yarn studio so I really can't fight fate****.
**** Disclaimer: I voted for this pattern in the KAL voting process. Sometimes fate needs a helping hand.
