So let me tell you about my new pattern. You can now keep baby clean this Halloween with a fun pumpkin bib.

Designed for easy make-ability this jack-o’-lantern baby bib is just perfect for any little pumpkin’s first Halloween. My little one will definitely sporting this bib and enjoying Halloween in style!  If you’d like to add this pattern to your queue / favourites on Ravelry you can do here.

The lovely people at I Like Crochet also gave me the opportunity to view the October issue of the magazine to tell you about the other patterns available. Some of my favourites include the Frightfully Adorable Bat Set by Amanda Saladin which is just CUTE it almost hurts the eyes with how ridiculously adorable it is!

And there’s plenty of patterns for grown ups too! The issues takes a cue from fall’s changing foliage with gorgeous variegated colourways featuring in scarves and shawls and another of my favourite patterns for this edition – socks! Aren’t these Caramel Corn Slipper Socks by Kristi Simpson just good enough to eat!

I’m also completely in love with the Herbal Tea Cardi by Kristen TenDyke, it completely fulfil’s my current love affair for mustard coloured yarn, and it would make a great piece for layering as the days turn chillier!
