With summer finally over, it is time to start thinking about all the great fall activities that are fast approaching. Since I have started crocheting, I have wanted to display something at the fair. Each year I seem to forget until I see advertisements for the fair. This year is shaping up to be no different.
I do have a baby blanket I want to crochet but don’t know if I will get to it before the fair. I guess it would give me a reason to buy yarn and give me something to crochet. I may have to think about it. I have so many half-finished projects that I would love to clear out. It just seems wrong to start something new with so many projects needing to be finished.
It is getting close to Halloween, so I thought I would make a few pumpkin hats for our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. Here is one I made in about a day from this simple newborn pumpkin hat pattern.
This was the first time I had made a hat from side-to-side. It was so easy to get the size you needed. No frogging! I love it. I will be making more very soon.
Here is my first pumpkin in the Itsy Bitsy Spider Crochet-a-long. I chose to do a white pumpkin since I had noticed white pumpkins before at the pumpkin patch we visit each year. I always wondered if anyone ever chose a white pumpkin. Orange pumpkins still rule in my book. Of course, orange is my favorite color not to disrespect the white pumpkin.
I’ve joined a crochet-a-long for a pumpkin. I have made some pumpkins in the past but never really liked them. So I thought I would give it another try when I found this CAL. It’s really a cute pattern and cannot wait to get started. I’m still working on a few pteranodons and a few Christmas projects. I think the pumpkin will be a nice break. In fact, I may make several. We planted some pumpkins but not sure they will be ready by October or even make for that matter. Anyway these pumpkins will be a lot cuter than real ones.
You can go to Itsy Bitsy’s Spider’s blog to sign up for the CAL through September 10th. You can still join afterwards but you will need to buy the pattern from Ravelry for $1.
