wooooooo Halloween!

OMG... what fun I had in the Halloween swaps!
Here is what I received in the MINI, yes, I said mini, Hootin' Halloween swap.  This was unbelieveable!  The cowl, has giant spiders knitted into it.  She sent all the yarn to make the mittens I wanted, plus the pattern, the jewelry and the zombie (!) stitch markers she got from etsy. I kept saying to myself as I openned the packages.."this is crazy!" Wow, I loved everything soooo much! Thank you Diabro!

This is what I sent my spoilee...angiedawnc
The felted witch hat (full size) I hand needle felted the sun and moon on. It was a favorite logo of hers. I made the cat bag, stitchers, cat box, cat ornament, and owl pin.

In another swap, the Creatures of the Night mini swap, it was a personal swap I did with ChrisFixedKitty, here's what she sent me...
I love everything! The yarn bowl ..which has a Doctor Who 'crack in the wall" crack in the glaze, the bee necklace and there are earrings to match too, the bat bag, cute little bat, stitchers galore, zombie duck...and a bone tatting shuttle and thread winder!!!!!!
Here is what I sent her. She is really into steampunk so..

...I made her a steampunkin! haha.. And an adorable, if I do say so myself, steampunky Octopus knitting a bat scarf. She also wants to get into tatting, so I sent a tatting book and a bookmark I designed myself. Mint Meltaways..something she loves but can't get where she lives. I had never had them. wow.. they are good!

And finally, my last Halloween Vampire swap from knitredsox...
 the cloth is a giant skull and crossed bones, adorable bat bag, bat cookie cutter, and I adore the bat acrylic necklace! 
Here is what I sent my swap partner. She liked Twilight, so got Bella's mittens and a headband that matched, and some other cool stuff.

Oh yeah, I had a wonderful time Halloween swapping this year!!!
