The other night I hit a wall. A big one, directly in the face. In the midst of trying to finish up the Halloween costumes, I decided to quit early and crochet a pumpkin.
Yep, in a fit of stress I decided that I needed to crochet an amigurumi pumpkin right. that. second.
So I did. I found an easy pattern from Hip 2 Thrift via Pinterest and in just under an hour I had a small, happy little pumpkin. (Totally channeling Bob Ross right now...)
And once I had one, I had to have 2.
And then, it was on.
I found a cute spider pattern from Crafty is Cool, so naturally, I needed to have a spider too.
And while I was crocheting my second spider I thought--"hey, maybe I need to have a bat." So I used the same body pattern as the spider and added wings instead of legs.
And then I had a bat.
During this frenzy of crocheting something interesting happened. The wall went away, the stress lifted, and I found my way back to the costumes with renewed enthusiasm.
I also have something else. Too many Halloween amigurumis! So, I am having my first ever giveaway.
