Work-in-Progress Wednesday 3

This week I've been making some pumpkins!  I started making this pattern at a friend's request (she has a birthday this month & really wanted them).  The pattern has three sizes and the smaller two were pretty quick to make, but then I started on the larger of the 3 and...well, it's barely started in the pic below.

Here it is a little while later, but still not even close to done.  Let's just say, I won't be tackling puff stitch again anytime soon.  I felt like a had a claw hand by the time I finished these, but they are all done.

I had more orange yarn after the puff stitch pumpkins were done, so I decided to move on to this pattern.  Much easier on the wrist, but perhaps that is because the pattern is for the little guys shown below.  I decided to wing it and enlarge the pattern to make the bigger pumpkin and was pleased with the results.

Next up...stems for all the pumpkins.  But for that I need to wait for daylight so I can see the stitches in the dark brown yarn I'm planning to use.  I also picked up some yarn for a mystery project (i.e. gift).  Do you like these colors together?

Oh, and I have to stitch up another gift (the bear) asap as he is set to go to his new home this weekend.  Guess I had better get to it!

Also, I really like the colour combo in the basket - intrigued as to what they will become though!

Fabulous pumpkins! I think I prefer the second round to the first, but all of them are super cute. Have fun stemming them!
