Ghost Hand Puppet

As I mentioned previously I have a mix of holiday boxes and a birthday from now until Christmas and I'm trying to apply a time to each project to make sure nothing is completely neglected.

I realized I'd made a significant dent in the castle project, but now that it has been abandoned as a birthday project it slots into a Christmas deadline making it less of a finish now priority and putting it inline with a rotation of projects. I can only make one duck before needing a break to do something different and I'm at a stopping point waiting on supplies to wokr on another October birthday present. It seemed like a good time to think Halloween.

I've been on a bit of a puppet kick lately and while looking through my binder of Halloween projects I came across a free pattern from Red Heart for a set of 3 Halloween Hand puppets. You can find the pattern here .

Just a note these puppets are designed for little hands. I made mine with worsted weight yarn and a g hook and my fingers didn't fit completely into the finger holes. If your child has slightly larger hands you might want a bigger hook or you may wish to add some stitches to make the ghost wider. These are going to someone with little hands still so I don't think it will be an issue. I still have the bat and pumpkin to make to finish the set.

I am thinking with decreased outside holiday activities available having some fun indoor holiday themed play is more important than ever.

These are fab! I normally get my two a few treats for Halloween and these will be perfect for my youngest son's goody bag. :)

What a friendly ghost, and such a lovely gift. Puppets have such a lot of play value don't they?
