Every Labour Day weekend, to celebrate the end of the summer camping season, the community association at the lake put on a big Halloween celebration, complete with trick-or-treating and a costume contest. Everyone decorates their places and there is a wonderful haunted hayride as well. It really is a great way to say goodbye to summer.
A day or two later, I asked my son what he wanted to be for Halloween at the lake. Being a true lover of Lord of the Rings, he immediately chose “Gimli” the dwarf. I internally smiled, but also panicked. I am not a fast knitter but I really wanted to get it done for this weekend. I started on Tuesday evening, worked like crazy all day Wednesday and finished it today!!!!
When I gave it to DS, he was so excited. To tell the truth, so was I. I may now have to make a matching one for DH as well.
And a bit more close up:
It was a fun project to knit and even more fun to give!
