SuperLinoleum

It's a bird!

It's a plane!

It's a chick with an eyeball cape!

Huh?

Um, yeah...



You know, it was surprisingly easy for me to get ready for work today...Slipping on my red pants and boots (both of which are Linoleum wardrobe staples oh by the way), pinning my eyeball emblem (which doubles as a coaster when not on super hero duty) to my SuperShirt and pulling my newly crocheted SuperLinoleum mask over my eyes. Ahhh, I love Halloween!

I also love Red Heart Super Saver!
Mon dieu!
Now, now, I'm just as yarn snobby as the next person. But hey, a SuperLinoleum on the go doesn't have time to wait for her cape to be dry cleaned. Nope, it has got to be wash and wear. And hel-lo? Nobody but Red Heart does red quite like this...


Even the eyeball emblem on back is brought to you by that crunchy queen of acrylic fiber...Oh, and don't forget the one on the front of my shirt!



I seriously made a dent in my RHSS stash this Halloween by working up this ensemble.

Is stashbusting a super power?

It is now...

Happy Halloween everyone!

I gotta learn me some crochet. Spinning goes quickly enough, but knitting takes forever.

And I don't have forever, particularly when it comes to nifty Halloween capes.
