So I started more projects. I made a Harvest Pumpkin from Marie Mayhew. The yarn is Cascade Pastaza. I also got tired of my cotton blend sweater so I frogged it and started Halfobi with Silk Garden 225. Halfobi is knit side-to-side from one sleeve to the other. This yarn is so soft and fuzzy.
I finally got around to sewing on the leaf and tendril and making the ridges on my pumpkin. I started a smaller pumpkin.(This is one pumpkin.) I have not knitted much, but I organized my knitting patterns into categories in binders. I felted my Kuryeon-Chans, and they all came out different sizes.

I am still in a felting mood, so I made a few more of Chris's Kureyon-Chan bags.

Cookie likes cooked pumpkin, apparently. I have not found much that Cookie-pup will not eat. She is… Continue reading Puddin’
I am still plugging away on the Woolly Pumpkin, when I am not cooking apples or feeding Cookie. I couldn't get a photo of her. She wouldn't sit still long enough, and she knocked me over going for a treat in DH's hand. We think she is happy to be home from the vet. I… Continue reading Punkins and Other Produce
