My Lil' Punkin'
So this fall, when the weather started turning cooler, my immediate thoughts were on Little Pumpkin by Susan B Anderson. And then I was off and running.
Pumpkin Hat KAL (knit-a-long) on Ravelry, but I needed X's hat finished before it started so he could wear it to the community Spook Walk.
I knit X's hat with KnitPicks Shine Worsted in this lovely color of Marmalade. I had 3 skeins of this color left over from another knit project for a friend. Since I already had it in my stash and it was the perfect color, I went ahead and got started. For the stem I used KP Swish Worsted in Truffle and the leaves were made from KP Shine Worsted in Laurel. All of this was from my stash and it felt SO nice to use yarn I already had (it also meant I could start right away!).
I chose to add 2 leaves instead of just one. Hubby helped make that decision. We both agreed it looked even better this way!
