Autumn has arrived!

I made my newest one a pumpkin hat for the season. It was a very simple pattern, except for the leaf, and it knitted up in one evening. My older boy loves it but it's too small for him and I think he looks a bit weird in something that looks so baby. I used this pattern:
I highly recommend it, extremely easy pattern with great results!

I used a chunky orange yarn with brown wool for the stem and green dishcloth cotton for the leaf.

Join me in a KAL!

I joined a bi-monthly knit-a-long (is that lame?), you should join me too! It's for dishcloths so it's easy, a great way to practice new techniques, great for gifts, and won't take up too much time. Their blog is and then you have to join the Yahoo Group in order to see the patterns. They give out a few lines a day and after a week, voila!
