Category Winners

Favorite Creation (crochet): Margie Carroll
Prize: One pattern of choice from Crafting Friends Designs

My little dinosaur, granddaughter, Adeline.

I used Ira Rott’s pattern Tops the Triceratops Dinosaur Hat pattern for the head features, attached to a hoodie and free-handed the back, spines & tail.

A comment from one of the judges: I think it is very creative that she put the crocheted items on the clothing.

Favorite Creation (non crochet):  Debbie Procek
Prize: One pattern of choice from Ambassador Crochet

I was paper… three of us work in class together and we were rock, paper and scissors…

A comment from one of the judges: Very simple costumes but together a unique idea. Since they work in a school I wonder how many times they played rock, paper, scissors with the kids.

Favorite Group: Kathy Davis
Prize: One pattern of choice from Sweet Potato 3

“I crocheted all the ears for my team for Halloween at work. We all made our shirts.”

A comment from one of the judges: I really love that they got everyone to dress up where they work and that they made their costumes. Very clever idea to crochet the ears.

Best Halloween Spirit: Heather Windle
Prize: One pattern of choice from Made by Mary

“I made the spiders in the trunk of the car, the ninja turtle hat and my son’s fingerless gloves.”

A comment from one of the judges: I chose this one because it captured part of their Halloween night and the adults seem to be having as much fun (or more) than the kids.
