The costume was Katie's idea, inspired by one of Charlie's favorite stuffed animals - Henry the Fox. She found the Fox Hat pattern on Ravelry; I had the yarn in my stash ... done deal! Next I found the vest pattern (free!) and once we had this inspiration photo ...
agreed on a blue-gray Rowan Felted Tweed. Both patterns were quick, fun knits (raveled here - the vest and the hat). I finished the knitting last weekend, sewed on the buttons before Charlie came on Tuesday...and sent the pieces home with him. Without a try-on. Not even a single photo.
Halloween is huge in Katie's neighborhood. There was a parade - and a lot of parents (and grandparents...ahem!) taking photos!
and then trick or treating. Charlie's favorite part was passing out the candy.
...and I loved having these photos to share with my friends last night. More to come on "my" Halloween...tomorrow. Happy NaBloPoMo!
