We couldn’t resist popping in an extra post to celebrate the Beasties’ favourite holiday!
Have a spooktacular Hallowe’en!
And here are some seasonal monsters to get your own festivities started!
First of all, we’ve got Dracula Beastie stopping in for a bite!
Then Ghostie Beastie’s going to drift through later on.
And who knows… If the party starts to quieten down, Frankenstein’s Monster Beastie might well be on hand to bring it back to life!
Well, as long as nobody lets this guy in.
Have a monster time… And don’t forget to tell us all about your own Hallowe’en plans in the comments!
…And this year, I’ve actually had a chance to start getting under way with some seasonal special edition Beasties! Today, I’m excited to introduce you to my first “Famous Monsters” Beastie – Frankenbeastie!
Cobbled together from discontinued dyelots and abandoned WIPs, this little monster hasn’t enjoyed the same precise stitching as some of my other creations…
… And the tailoring of his outfit leaves a lot to be desired as well.
But it’s fine, because I’ve equipped him with this season’s must-have accessory – a pair of electrodes in his neck!
Now those will surely add a little extra spark to his personality!
So, what’s the verdict – a thing that should not be, or a misunderstood creature who makes us question what it means to be a Beastie? Let me know in the comments!
And as if that wasn’t enough excitement for one week, I made some time over the weekend to peruse the latest issue of online crafty magazine Olann And. Look who made a special guest appearance in their Handmade in Ireland feature!
You can read the full feature here – Knitter Beastie was delighted to be included in the lineup alongside so many other great Irish handmade goodies! There’s also a new edition of the Olann And Podcast up on YouTube, which I’m looking forward to checking out on my next day off. If you want to beat me to it, you can find it here… But no spoilers, please!
We’ll be back on Friday with another blast from the Beastie past – in the meantime, have a great week!
