I just made a quick design, using Bernat's Glow in the Dark yarn. It's a little ghost finger puppet, knit in the round.
Here's a link to my pattern on my Flickr account:

It only took about 15 minutes to make, so it's a quick, easy knit. :)

I'm making about 20 of them, to give to my piano students for a Halloween treat.

Adorable, yet spooky. How do you like the yarn, I am considering making a hat for a child with it (and possibly an ear warmer that goes over caps).

Thanks so much! It's a fun project. I think I'll go buy a couple more skeins in different colors, so my students will have different colors to choose from. I'll probably make a bunch of them, and put them in a basket. Any leftovers can go back to my house. :)

I like the yarn...it's lightly spun, so it's soft to knit with. It seems like it's kind of a fragile yarn when you're working with it, but it holds up pretty well when it's knit together. I've never washed it, though...so I can't give you any advice on that.

What a great idea for your students. Does it really glow in the dark?

Yes it does!!! :thumbsup:
It's not incredibly bright, but it has a nice soft glow to it.
You have to leave it in the light to be activated, then it lightly glows for about 5 to 10 minutes.

I just tried to take a photo in my bathroom, where there are no windows, but my little digital camera would not take a good photo of the glow. :pout: Oh well....at least I tried. :shrug:

Here's a photo of the 3 little ghosts I've made so far:

Cute! The kids will enjoy their glow in the dark fingers. Hey, the kids can even play the piano with one of these on. I like the faces you put on them, each has a different personality.

I'm still working on them. 4 down, 15 to go!

Here are some more little ghosts! I've lost count now... I just keep making more each day this week to give to my piano students. I have 21 students, and some of them have siblings. So, I'm making enough for them as well. So, I'll probably end up making about 30 of them.

Well, Karina, send me a PM, and we'll figure out how to get some to you, my friend. :)

I know! I have 3 sons, so I remember dealing with that when they were little. :wink: Also, sometimes the siblings of my students become my students later on. So, I try to have a good relationship with them from the start. :)
