I know, it seems that all I have on my mind these days is Halloween, and I'm not even such a huge fan of this holiday. Still, after making my autumnal pom pom wreath and realizing that the front porch needed spiders to thrill the trick or treaters come Monday, I couldn't resist making these!
I came across this pattern by Mary Jane Mucklestone (who knew she designed eyeballs?) and cast-on immediately. I'm definitely going to make more (in-between knitting Miranda's costume) and perhaps put a whole bowl of them on the front porch. Hmmm, maybe I should put them in the same bowl that I fill with treats to give out on Halloween. After all, you are supposed to be a little scared on all hallow's eve, right?
P.S. My friend Beverly says I should add some red yarn to make a few eyeballs look bloodshot. I think that's a great idea!
