Halloween! What are you making?

Boo! It's only two days until Strung Out Fiber Arts' favorite holiday. Though my shop is always busy in the months before Halloween, the number of orders that came in this year caught me off guard. I have been busy busy making many little Snow Whites, many little Cinderellas, and many, many, many little Elvises. Now that Halloween is right around the corner, I have a bit more time for my own projects.
If (like me) you're still in the Halloween mood and (unlike me) have finished your Halloween costume,  check out this great list of free patterns for Halloween Decorations compiled by Moogly.

I particularly enjoy the Spider in a Jar on Fun and Fang and the Zombie Phone Case on Cult of Crochet, which, let's be honest, I would rock all year round. All these last minute goodies look like tons of fun, but what I really want to tell you about is the super-secret project I'll be showing off on Halloween night.

It's quite a bit different from my usual Halloween projects, which run more along the line of these extremely classy wigs (warning: shameless plug for a pattern available in my Ravelry Store).

The Mod Bob with Devil Horns
The Mod Bob with Alien Antennae

My project this year isn't a hat at all. There are no horns or antennas involved. No blood shot eyeballs. No vampire teeth.
In fact, it's a sweater.

Scary right? If you're too afraid, you can stop reading here. I won't judge.

It is in fact a very specific sweater from a particular classic horror movie, and I am very much looking forward to sharing my terrifying new look with you all (just as soon as I get the darn thing finished). Any guesses?

No, it's not this one.

Too Easy!

I can't tell you just yet, since it's still in it's final stages of seaming and finishing, but I will tell you it involves cables. A terrifying number of cables! Haunted cables.

Do you recognize it?

Tune in for the exciting conclusion...coming soon.
