Alright, it's the middle of September, so I can't wait any longer to start posting Halloween projects. Oh, how I *heart* this season! Over the coming weeks I'll be posting a several spooky projects -- both new and from the archives -- so, get ready! First up though, is my latest, littles design: Webbed leg warmers. Simple, black & white, slip stitch color work creates a webbed background for an embroidered spider to lurk on. Make these for your own scary, sweetie and they'll be as cozy as they are creepy while wearing them! Enjoy! xx, Vickie
