We have arrived at the end of July, so why am I talking about Halloween? It seems like, with the start of school, Labor Day weekend and shutting down the garden for the season, that August and September fly by. All of a sudden we're closing in on Oktoberfest and - bang - it's Halloween!
So - planning ahead for the mad rush of the season - here are a couple of ideas to work on while the days get shorter and cooler.

Capelet of Invisibility
It might even help to keep you warmer if the night is chilly.
Cat paws and ears
And an amigurumi spider
None of this looks too demanding. You might be able to fit a few Halloween things into the busy schedule of the next couple of months. Don't let it sneak up on you.
