Pumpkins In Progress

In my latest WIP post I noticed, that I love Autumn. As the Fall season is getting closer and the nature is turning to more colorful, I am switching to autumn-mood.
On Saturday I went to my yarn store and buyed some orange yarns for pumpkins!
Yummie for eating and yummie for crafting!

The big orange something will be a basket. There is a complicated pattern in my mind about a perfect pumpkin-shaped basket, I just have to figure out, how can I complete it!  I am so excited! I started to crochet on Monday night after midnight. I just couldn't sleep...

These darker ones are made for coasters or appliques. Still need some perfection and testing. I will make a few to my Etsy shop,I think.
I am planning to make a garland with black and white pumpkins to get a unique autumn decoration in our home.

This little one is made from some leftover Baby yarn. I am not sure, how will I use it.

Are you ready for the Autumn?


  1. Ha..I did the same thing this morning..I sorted my stash for fall colors..and started searching for patterns!

  2. Very cute! I got teased at the craft store yesterday for buying reindeer...I have lots of Christmas projects to get going.
