We were on vacation last week and, while I didn't get a lot of knitting done, I did manage to get a pumpkin hat done for my daughter:
*Yarn: Nashua Handknits: Creative Focus Superwash
*Needles: 8 & 6 (I used DPNs the whole way through)
*Pattern: Fiber Trend's "Patrick's Pumpkin" (CH-14)
*Size (Small - 19" head)
It's a fun little pattern and goes quickly - It's a little more involved than the "Berry hat" that I've made before, but it's definitely more pumpkin-y. The only odd thing about it is that you knit the "leaves" on the bottom first and then pick up the stitches after that - I had some problems (picked up the stitches on the wrong side, but... oh well.
This is the Smallest size on the pattern it also has a med (20 1/2" head) and a Large (22 1/2" head).
We also hit a "few" wineries :-) -- hmm... that, and the fact that I came down with a cold might have contributed to the lack of knitting...
Oh, and I got the lion's share of another one of Jared's (brooklyntweed's) Habitat hats done... this one is to match the cabled scarf I finished a while ago. The only problem is that I ran out of yarn with about a dozen rows left! ugh! Fortunately, the farm had more and it matched well. Only 3 rows left!
Grace and Peace,
