Wow–I just realized this is the FOURTH Halloween that I’ve been blogging, so I have a bit of goolish content on the blog that it might be nice to revisit.

In 2005, my first year with the blog, I made a crocheted Halloween Treat Bag for a class. You can get the bag on my Ravelry store, but this week only, I’ll e-mail it for free to anyone who leaves me a comment on this post requesting the pattern.

In 2006 we carved a “knit-witch” pumpkin:

Speaking of which–I’m hosting a pumpkin-carving party later this week, and we’re contemplating making our own apple cider I’ll take pictures and report here if we do.

Ghoulish Snacks: Make this easy Halloween snack that jay brought home from preschool last year:

Bake and decorate Halloween Gingerbread Cookies with my recipe from last fall:

And of course, there’s Selma’s Hermione Tie which I made just this weekend:

What are you making this year?

Roundup of Halloweens Past
  • I made this year a bag for my kid that’s sooo nice! He loves it. He’s using it already to carry his water and juice to school and on Friday he’ll carry it to the Trick or Treat “excursion”, lol…

  • I made Elena a fancy “Hannah Montana” scarf for her to wear (as you can guess, she’s Hannah Montana) and she’s also wearing a bolero I made last year for an outfit as part of her costume-so I made something and recycled something I made too!

    I’m making myself comfortable (joke). I’m getting ready for the season of knitting. The temps are going down, the heat will be on soon. I would love a copy of your bag to add to my knitting list.

    I’m afraid that here in the UK, we don’t celebrate Halloween to the extent you guys do in the US, I wish we did, I’d love to have the kids come knocking!
    The bag is gorgeous, and I’d love a copy too, if possible.

    I just love all the fantastic Halloween craft ideas! The crochet bag is just to die for. My dd is wanting a “special” treat bag, that just fits the bill!

    Happy Fall!

  • When I was a kid, we had two big apple trees and a cider press! Each year we’d bring it out under the trees and make a bunch of cider — we put in in plastic milk jugs and froze it to have later in the year. I remember it being totally delicious, and unparalleled by anything you could buy at a store.
