Normally I am not one for making cute little knitted animals or decorations. It isn't that I don't like them, I just don't think I have the patience for the tiny details. However, recently my girls and I have been feeling very autumnal, and they made me a centrepiece for the kitchen table.
I thought it was adorable (they did it all by themselves!), but I also thought it needed a little something. That's where my cute wee pumpkin comes in. I found the pattern on Ravelry, of course, and I knocked it out in just over a day.
And just to show you how really stinking frugal I am some times, I stuffed it with the fluff my dog pulled out of her latest toy. She LOVES to demolish stuffed dog toys. Here it is with the leaf on the centrepiece. I LOVE IT!!
Well, the next day (or two or three) I was surfing the blog hops, as I do. I came across another pumpkin pattern on The Sitting Tree. Well, I had to try it! It was even easier and faster than the first one, and I love it too.
After my daughter saw this one, she said, "Oh, can we have an apple too?" Seems I've opened a whole can of worms with my love of pumpkins........
