Want to help people in need this season?

Because I’m always interested in finding new knitting patterns, I subscribe to a daily email from AllFreeKnitting.com.  Today’s email featured a link to a blog post about knitting for a wonderful cause.  I wanted to post the link here for anyone who might be interested in helping out.  The cause is called Project Winter Warmth and they are hoping to collect hats, scarves and mittens/gloves for babies, children and adults.  The collected items will then go to local charities and help those in need.   Please click on the link below to learn more!

Happy Knitting!


More Pumpkins!

I made four more pumpkins in the last couple of days for my mum, dad, sister and Sue.  They came out cute!  However, I ran out of the orange yarn so I’m unable to make more for my mini punkin patch, but that’s OK!

As you could see from my previous post, I have a few more projects to work on, so I’ll continue with those!

Here’s a picture of the other pumpkins:

This is the same pattern I found on Ravelry which I  posted earlier this week.

Punkin Patch

I found this Jack Be Little Pumpkin pattern by Elizabeth Murphy on Ravelry last week. I just had to try it. So over the weekend I went out and bought the yarn I needed to make this.  Though I have a tote over-flowing with yarn, I didn’t have the colors I needed for this.  I noticed when I sat down to start it last night that I didn’t have the exact size needles I needed, but I think it came out just fine. I started it last night and finished it when I got home from work today.

It actually wasn’t difficult to do and worked pretty quickly.

I’m planning to make a few more of varying sizes to make my own “punkin” patch 🙂

Happy Autumn!
