Happy Halloween Spider Web crochet skirt finished!

Last year I posted the almost finished crocheted spider web skirt pattern and yup, I finished in time to wear it this year! Here is a fun photo my friend Maria took of me in my spider web skirt hamming it up for the camera holding a giant pair of scissors she scored on Ebay!

A side note I will confess I had to tear the house apart to find the tiny zip lock baggie the little ball of yarn, hook and almost completed skirt was in. Because where do you keep your Halloween unfinished crochet projects? In with all the Halloween decorations? No. In your "works in process" area? No. I finally found it in the drawer I keep projects I have written about already. These are the done ones but I must have thought I would finish it sometime during the year. Go figure.

OK now onto craftastic links!

I just love this and your whole look. I need to make my own crafty costume like that! Thanks so much for linking up to my blog hop. I really appreciate it :)

This is awesome! I have no idea how to crochet so you get mad props just for knowing... and then making it themed around Halloween--that's even better.

I'm a new follower of yours and found you at The Swell Life. I'd love if you joined us over at Sew Woodsy and linked this up!
