Last year, we did a post about how to make a lovely Pierrot costume like Spring's: read our extended notes on making a Pierrot. Pictured here: Tunic Pattern by Made by Rae; Collar by Lucille; Pom Pom tutorial by The Sweetest Occasion and Knitting pattern for slippers by Carrie Bostick Hodge. This week, we'll be posting more Halloween costume ideas inspired by our Halloween story, stay tuned!
Every fall our crafty attentions turn to knitting and weaving. If you've always wanted to knit, our super-easy Windy scarf pattern is ready for you: find the pattern and notes here.
This December we have made you a digital advent calendar!
Behind the doors are all kinds of treats, surprises, and prizes including craft supplies, some beautiful soft yarn and apps ... The calendar is open to everyone, but only Windy subscribers are automatically entered into all our prize draws.
Come visit: the first door opens December 1st! If you arrive late to the calendar, don't worry, we have plenty of prize draws :)

What's behind these doors? Only one way to find out ...
Do you know what you'd like to be for halloween? Spring wanted to be Pierrot for Halloween. Here are some tutorials and pattern if you'd like to be Pierrot, too. A ruffly tunic, some black tights, a collar and some pom poms, you are all set :)
By the way, the collar tutorial looks daunting, (and is in French) but it is surprisingly easy and the nicest part is that it looks prettier with the raw edge of the fabric sewing, so you just rip a strip of white fabric, fold and stitch as you go. There is no hemming.
