Skeletons need clothing too!

I came across the wooden skeletons that I bought a few years back in an after-Halloween sale. The girls where just begging to be dressed up in their Halloween finest.
What girl would not like some tule, ribbon and sequins?

 The chickens in Cluckingham palace are not that impressed, only thing they are interested in is food.
 Paco on the other hand thought it very interesting, but in fear of the girls (including me) ending up with a nice green snot spit, we stayed at a safe distance.
 Tess was only interested in a nice long talk and some behind-the-ear scratching.
 Who also moved into the farm is Mona, this lovely monster who likes to dress up for Halloween was a test knit for Anna from Mochimochi Land. Pattern can be found here.

 Mona likes her costume, although going out in the fields made her a bit shy.

There is more knitting on the needles, the only thing is that I need to find more time. If you have any on hand or know how to generate more hours in a day, please let me know.
For now we are waiting on that big rainstorm that has been promised to us for days. Finally after a few very warm (hot) things are cooling down.
We are finally settled in here and it starts to feel like home. There is one thing about moving that totally baffles me. I lost things that I know (really believe me, I KNOW) had packed. I even saw the box here in the house, touched it even. And I just can not find the content of it.
My mouse from my laptop is gone, so are my headphones, my fishie vest, my new rainbow socks that I made at Sock Summit and my bead crochet book that I got from Kniterlines for my birthday. The last one bothers me the most. I have the urge to make some of that stuff for a nice little curtain for the bathroom. Have the fabric, have the yarn, have the beads but can not find the book. It is driving me bonkers!!!
For now, I think a cup of coffee is in order and some knitting while I wait for the rain.

Very cute and festive!

We got rain in the East Bay. I think you moved too far south. :)
