Thank you for taking part!

Please, have a look at my Gallery!



       Few weeks ago I was so lucky to get in touch with Morticia Addams. As you know she's often needles and yarn in her hands so I asked her what she was doing and if she would like share her latest scary pattern with me! ;-))
       "Of course, I'd like to share with you!" she answered.
       Very, very pround Morticia showed me what she was knitting - and I really was amazed. It was the most scary washcloth I'd ever seen! So I asked her if I could share her pattern with my knitting friends all over the world! She answered:
       "Ok, but don't give away the whole pattern at once and send it to your friends as a lovely, frightening gift for Halloween from me! Do tell them by and by about this wonderful, scary pattern!  You must only tell them that I'm knitting a washcloth for Gomez. And when I've finished the one for Gomez, I'll knit another cloth for Lurch to use in the kitchen (a dishcloth I suppose) and one for our bread basket! All three cloths from the same pattern, but with very small differences!"
