I wanted to be crafty and decorate our apartment for fall. It all started when I wanted to carve a pumpkin. When I realized that I would have to pay more than a dollar for a pumpkin, I decided I wanted to knit one instead. I went on Ravelry and found patterns for pumpkins, leaves, and acorns.
In April I started knitting the Slanting Gretel Tee from the Fall 2009 edition of Interweave Knits Magazine. I love the design of this sweater and have enjoyed working on it. However, due to some sizing problems, it has taken a lot longer than I planned.
