Feeling Knitty

I can almost feel fall coming on, which always gets me in the mood to drink warm lattes, bake (& eat!) pumpkin muffins, and knit. I love the feel of good yarn in my hands and thinking up all kinds of projects for the cooler months ahead. Here is a recent little project I knit up for a friend's baby shower. Their baby is due in a few weeks and I can't wait to see their sweet bundle of joy sporting this pumpkin hat!And in the sewing world, Summit is coming soon - yay! Here is the fabric I bought for the Color Wheel Charm Swap. My assignments were Red and Red-Violet, which are not colors I usually gravitate towards. It was fun to shop for something different and I absolutely love the purple-ish print!


  1. I have a feeling Baby Frisk will be photographed in this hat very soon after s/he arrives! It's one of the cutest things I've ever seen. Thank you SO much for taking the time and effort to make it. Dave and I are both so glad you were able to be at the shower -- such serendipity!

  2. This pumpkin hat is absolutely adorable!! I wish I knew how to knit so I could make one for my girl. Maybe there is a pattern somewhere for a crocheted twin? Did you use a particular knitting pattern for it?
