October Crochet

The colors of autumn are enchanting, October’s most of all. And the colors of candy corn are my favorite. Like the candy itself, the palette is sweet and simple – a honeyed mallow blend of yellow, orange, and cream.

It is true, as they say, you can never have too many doilies. And so it happens every year during the cozy season, that I look around the house and wonder why there are too few of them, and what can I do about it? The answer almost always comes in an armful of yarn and a crochet hook.

I crocheted my favorite granny hexagon in candy corn hues, and gave it a black edging for a very vintage Halloween finish. (Granny crochet has a mesmerizing perpetual movement, doesn’t it? It’s the Buster Keaton of yarncraft.)

Falloween baubles are scattered across the dining table: Pumpkins, pies, corn, bats, witches, Jack o’lanterns, apples… (I’ve been thinking a lot about Falloween lately. There’s much to explore in that very cozy combined world of fall and Halloween.)

‘Till next time.
