Tis the season for...Pumpkins!

As soon as I saw it, I just had to make this adorable pumpkin hat!  Then of course I went crazy and made 4 - two for my girls, two for my friend's little girls.   The "toddler" size ended up being perfect for the bigger girls, ages 4 and almost 5, as well as for my younger munchkin, age 2.5.   This pattern is super easy and I love the ridges/texture.

(If you wonder why my children are not wearing clothing, you are obviously childless and I envy your ability to sleep in)

Ben didnt want a pumpkin hat, so I decided to make him something to coordinate with the girls for pumpkin patch pictures.  I whipped up this scarf (basic HDC, 12 across) and used up the last of my orange yarn on pumpkin appliques.  I based those loosely on this pattern

I'm not 100% thrilled with the scarf, but he likes it (even if I made him crazy trying it on him 1000x to get the length right...yeah, I lost my measuring tape) so I guess we'll give it a whirl for fall pics. 

Finally, now that it's been gifted, I can show off one of my favorite sets:  The Giraffe.

Baby tee by Target.   Hat design my own.   Giraffe pattern here.
