Yet another busy end to summer

Life has certainly been busy lately! Summer is over and as always I'm left wondering where it went. I had a long list of things that I wanted to do over the summer break, so I'm not surprised that I didn't finish it all. I did get quite a bit done, but a few of my projects will just have to wait a little longer.

For the last few weeks I've been focused mainly on making as many owls and pumpkins as possible for the harvest sale at Glory Days this past weekend. I adapted the Pumpkin Pincushion pattern from Debbie Bliss' The Knitter's Year to be worked in the round so that I wouldn't have to seam. I also used yarn sewn through the middle and down the outside of the pumpkin to make the sides a bit bumpier instead of smooth.

Some lovely white pumpkins.

More pumpkins on display.

A flock of owls.
I designed the owl pattern myself. They are really fun and quick to make. Every owl turned out a little bit different, but they are all really cute! I will be putting the pattern for free here on my blog soon.
