Fall Fun

It finally feels like fall! We enjoyed the cooler weather as we crammed several things into one day. Fall fun all day long. While Granddaddy and I were at my aunt's very special birthday celebration....

...Baby Sister took her family to the pumpkin patch to find a pumpkin to carve and to find their way through the corn maze.

Then Mommy, Daddy and Big Sister went to see The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow at the SC Children's Theater. That meant that Granddaddy and I got to baby sit. Baby Sister has turned into a granddaddy's girl. Completely. 100%.

 She swatted me away several times, choosing his lap and his shoulder over mine.
Don't you know he loved that?

Imagine her doing that after I made this fun pumpkin hat just for her!!!!

Pattern: Punkin Head
Needles: Size 3
Yarn: Reynolds Wash Day Wool

Because I used sock yarn, I cast on 126 stitches and then pretty much followed the pattern from there. Just did a k12p2 for the body of the hat and then added a few more decrease rows. Have just finished a second one for Baby Cousin. (Hope they don't mind their baby having a "punkin head," too!)


  1. October is the perfect month for a birthday. And a pumpkin outing. And happy, happy times in the great green room!

  2. It's so funny how they gravitate toward one and then the other and then back again!

  3. Aw what a cute pumpkin hat!! I may just have to try to knit this myself - and aim to be finished by next fall! haha. Again, I love your blog! :)

  4. Charlotte, if it makes you feel better, I bought this yarn LAST fall and it took me this long to figure out what I was doing. So start now and you'll be ready for fall 2012!


I love it when you say hello here! Next best thing to stopping by for a visit.
