People brought fun food and dressed up accordingly.
Jenny was the Chief Witch, presiding with a snazzy cape and a flashing - and sometimes collapsing - wand.
It was suggested she would be a sensation at the Melbourne Cup in this getup, but somehow that failed to make an impression on her....oh well.
Below are the noodle-spiders, tasted lovely, the legs were nice and crunchy.
A fun time was had by all and it was great to see everybody getting into the spirit.

Annette is making a very pretty and colourful blanket. We were all going "WOW!" when we saw the purple wool, it looks amazing.
I totally confused everybody when I showed them the European way of knitting, with the thread over the left hand.
And I was stitching the "Scandinavian Rose", as usual. I'll be glad when this panel is finished, it's taken forever! Only ten to go...

We went outside while Carol was holding the fort, and 'oooh'-ed and 'ahhh'-ed at the spectacle. After all, it won't come around for another 15 years or so!
Marg even burst into a spontaneous moon dance (Michael Jackson, eat your heart out!), but couldn't be persuaded to repeat it for the camera.
We howled a bit and then left the moon to its own devices, going back to our sewing.
