Bella is Tinkerbell for Halloween, of course, we called her Tinkerbella all day! We have a wonderful zoo here in Toledo, and they do an annual thing for the kiddies called Little Boo at the Zoo. She had to have a hat to wear in the 50 degree-100 mile an hour breeze, so I knitted her up a little punkin hat. She is also wearing three layers of clothing!
I used Plymouth Dreambaby doubled and it is so soft. It almost feels like velvet or velour when you double it. I can't believe how soft it is. Just right for a little punkin head!

I added a purl stitch every 10 stitches to make the pumpkin ridges and I didn't increase to 85 stitches. I love the i-cord top!!! So cute!
I also made another Montego Bay Scarf. I had so much trouble with the first one, I was determined to start another so I could get in more practice. I am happy to say that I finally got the concept of the pattern and could do it with my eyes shut. It only took me a scarf and a half, but I finally got it!! (I'm a little dense sometimes!)
