I just picked up 10oz of gray Icelandic wool from Weaving Works. I am totally in love with the smell and texture of this fiber! I first spun a sample of it and made a 2-ply cord to wear as a belt for my Halloween costume.
Then I felted a sample of it and was very impressed at how quickly it felted up. I decided to add some merino wool to it and made a creepy neckscarf to wear for the season. I would like to felt longer scarves, but unfortunately I only have the length of my bathtub to work in right now. Sigh.

I love Halloween, and one of my weaknesses this time of year is definitely candy corn. I both love and despise candy corn. I decided to needlefelt some of these sweet treats so I would enjoy the sight of them, while avoiding the feeling of stomach discomfort after ingesting them :(
This year I am going out on the town as a dark sorceress. This blog is totally inspiring my dark sorceress costume. I love Lady Lavona's Cabinet of Curiosities! This lady really knows how to keep it creepy in the most artful of ways.
