Haunted Handwarmers: Day 1

Fortune befriends the bold. ~ Emily Dickenson

No doubt everyone will have their own reasons 2020 has been a challenging year. When I saw the Fright Club kal, I thought what a fantastic way to claim back some excitement in what could be a very tumultuous autumn in this country.

I’ve always loved places that wrap my yarn purchase in tissue paper like a present. Even though I know what’s inside, it’s still a special treat. Self care is even more important during COVID-19. I couldn’t be more excited to open up 13 wrapped surprises. Sure, most of them will have yarn to make Haunted Handwarmers. It’s the anticipation that’s half the fun.

Day one included Madeline Tosh sock in onyx for the cuffs. Conveniently, I have two mini balls so I can work two mitts at a time. With the black cuffs it’s a little hard to see what’s happening so far. The cuffs have 1×1 ribbing. What will day 2 hold?

These are the perfect project for Monster Mayhem 2020. After the Baztan Trilogy, we wanted something more lighthearted. The Wolf Man Collection was just the ticket. Here’s our list so far:

  1. The Invisible Guardian
  2. The Legacy of Bones
  3. Offering to the Storm
  4. The Wolf Man

How is your autumn going? Are you gearing up for a spooky Halloween movie fest or getting your social distancing Halloween costume ready? If you have movie suggestions, pop them in the comments section below.
